Small area with some big taste. Gordo Lele's is of the marina a few blocks, but a must stop for lunch. The food is great, cost is very reasonable and Javier will come out and sing you some Beatles song too!!

Whilst in Cabo San Lucas a visit to Gordo Lele's is an absolute must! Great Tacos & Tortas and an uplifting experience. The place is small and intimate, completely covered in Beatles album covers & photos. It has an almost 60's coffee shop or folk...More

This is the worst food I've eaten in Cabo in the last ten years. Warm beer, raw tortillas , terrible fish and shrimp. Would not recommend to anyone. Place very run down.

Not to mention I think the world of the owner, Javier. My favorite is the chicken taco but they are all great. You will not leave there hungry. I can barely eat 2 tacos. Javier will also put on a Beatles mini concert if you...More

Took us awhile to track Javier down as he has changed locations. We met him nearly 26 years ago when he had first opened El Gordo Lele. His taco stand became a favorite hang out for us as it was cheap and delicious. Javier became...More

We saw him June 15, and he looked tired. He smiled when we asked about his health, but he had obviously lost weight. He said the "government" was the reason he couldn't sell beer right now, but the tacos are as good as ever.
Just looking for an update on Javier's health and his business. Hopefully he will be back soon, entertaining his guests and friends and serving up the best tacos in Cabos. If anyone is visiting Cabos now or soon, please send us an update. Thanks
