This meal was my favorite of my whole trip & even went to a fancy seafood restaurant. The steak tacos were about the best I’ve ever had. The ocean margarita was also very tasty & beautiful! The service was also great & the overall atmosphere...was really cool.More

Had a great meal of steak tacos (wife enjoyed the beef tacos). The chips and salsa were very good and the house margarita pitcher was very good and a great deal. The only downfall was overpriced queso which tasted a lot like velveta. So if...you enjoy velveta the you will love the queso. For me not so much. Overall worth the stop.More

While we didn’t actually eat here we did have the salsa and it was so very good! The salsa was clearly handmade by someone who took pride in their food! The staff was very courteous and the restaurant was so clean!!

We stopped in for a taco and a margarita, and it was great. Service was friendly, atmosphere was fun, and food was fresh and delicious. We'll definitely make it a regular stop!

Came here after a fun filled day in Myrtle with the family. We went to Myrtle Beach Escape Room and afterwards the whole family was ready to eat! Thankfully, right down the street was Gordo’s. What a hidden gem! We started off with the Street...Corn, which I’ve had at other places and boy does this compare to the real thing! I ended up getting a burrito bowl with chicken which was a refreshing option to have at a Mexican restaurant. They have some really unique taco options as well! My husband was feeling adventures and ended up getting lengua which he surprisingly loved! One of the kids is obsessed with el pastor and he said it ways one of the best he’s had. We will be visiting again! Such a friendly staff and casual but exciting dining experience!More

Gordos is a fun place to grab a quick, casual Mexican dinner in downtown Myrtle Beach. The service was excellent: our waitress came by our table frequently to see if we needed anything more. Everyone in our group ordered something different & the comments ranged...from good to really, really good. I ordered chicken fajitas & was surprised by how large it was. The others ordered enchiladas, the Hawaiian tacos & the pork tacos. The only thing that kept me from rating Gordos a 5 was the exceptionally loud music. We were there around 5:30 and only 4 other patrons were there. However, this was during a time when major flooding from the aftermath of Hurricane Florence had practically cut off our area to tourists & locals were trying to protect their homes. It was not indicative of the usual crowd. The music was loud when we arrived & was turned up even higher while we were there. It made conversation difficult & made it hard to hear our soft spoken waitress.More

We stumbled upon this place when driving around looking for a good place to eat. My daughter always orders steak taco's when we go out for Mexican, and she said these were the best she has had. The steak fajita was also very tasty, as...were the shrimp tacos. I gave it four stars only because $70 for lunch seemed a bit pricey, and the waiter was good but not great - service was a bit slow at times, especially when I was ready to pay- he just sat at the front counter preocuppied on his phone or something, until I finally walked over to him. I wanted to pay with cash and asked for change, he said he had no cash. Really? I didn't want to leave a $20 tip so I ended up paying with my credit card.More
