We were a party of 8 so we pretty much took almost every seat in the joint. It's a little hole in the wall but hey Javier makes great taco's for cheap. Don't let the interior deter you. It was a great experience for us :)

We stopped by in March but were sad to see Javiar had been ill and it was closed. Great to see him back again, serving probably the freshest, best tacos in town! We'll be back maybe Dec, hoping you're up to a song or two also? Cheers, Pat and Shannon

Felt like we had to try this gem off the beaten path (thanks Trip Advisor). We were the only ones there late afternoon, fantastic food and great conversation. Also enjoyed hearing a great Beatles cover by Javier. Plan on grabbing lunch here at least once during your trip, it's definitely a hole-in-the-wall, but a great one.

After reading about Gordo Lele's on Trip Advisor, I knew we wanted to stop for lunch. Walking down the street we walked right past it. Had to double back and were we glad we did. Best tacos in town and so inexpensive! Will not miss it next time in Cabo

We were told by Sergio to go to his dad's restaurant. One year later we found it and will return on every trip to Cabo. Gordo Lele's is a delightful experience, he is such a kind man, plays Beatles music and will lip sync as he had recently lost his voice. He has the eyes of an old soul. Truly... More

This place is definitely off the beaten path but worth it... Not a fancy place at all... Casual and laid back... We were able to experience some live music while enjoying some great food at a great price.. It is very small and can get crowded. I would go again without any hesitation...

This place don't look like much from the street, & if a friend hadn't raved about it I probably would have passed it by. It's small, maybe 8 or 10 tables & he serves a limited menu (different varieties of tacos, tortas, nachos, ect.) But WOW! can this guy cook! Great prices go with his great food! & if you... More

Let me just start by saying that I've traveled all over, and had taco's from many different areas of the world, usually I use trip advisor to find the good stuff. This was my second time in Cabo, and our second trip back to Gordo Lele's. First let me explain the experience to those that may go by and decide... More

Walking by you'd never guess this kind of divey place would have the best street tacos in Cabo...but it does. And super cheap too! I get two tacos and a soft drink and I'm full. I had the carnitas and the beef tacos this time. My BF had the Gordo LeLe special torta sandwich which was good but not great... More
