Looking for a wonderful and fast lunch? Gordo's is the place to go. There is no wonder why there is a line out the door during lunch hours and often all day. Once you start going there you will not want to stop.

These days it is hard to great a great lunch at a great price. Gordos is the place to go for both. You can get a wonderful lunch fast and easy. I've been going there for years and it is just as good today as it was years ago. I think

You can not go wrong with Gordos. There is a reason there is always a line out their door. But don't let that line turn you away because it moves very fast. The food is outstanding. And on top of that if you get lucky you can see the burrito nazi in action - he's they guy with no expression while making your burrito.

Everything about the food is amazing. First of all you can choose between various tortillas (plain, whole wheat, and i think they even have spinach and sun-dried tomato). They heat up your tortilla before putting everything on it. (Most places heat up the whole thing after, leaving you with warm slushy salsa and warm guacamole oozing all over everything--not cool.) The way they do it preserves the flavors and textures of each individual ingredient. Their veggies are fresh (not frozen) and perfectly seasoned and cooked. Their salsa and hot sauce is some of the best I've ever tasting. Not to mention the prices are incredible and the service is super fast. You can even call and order on your way there and just go straight to the cash register to pick it up. They'll have it ready for you!

Been coming here for 20+ years, well not this location, but the one on Solano. Fast, quality, tasty. They haven't increased their prices very much over the past 20 years like most places. You can still get a super burrito with guac for under $6. The only thing that I would like them to improve on is to grill the tortillas instead of steaming them. This place is what consistency is all about. There once was a place called "Taqueria de Berkeley" near the California Theatre and that was the best burrito that I've ever had. It went out of business over 10 years ago, but they grilled the tortilla first. Everything there was homemade by the owner. Gordo as well as Picante are excellent choices for Mexican for under $10. No need to go anywhere else unless you want to try Taqueria Cancun in San Francisco...not the Cancun in Berkeley which is where the portions are smaller and the prices higher.

Gordo's is pretty much a staple in my diet. It's incredibly basic, but that's what makes it so good and reliable. Very delicious all the time.

They guys working there never seem terribly friendly, but the service is always great.

The place is really small and is more of a grab-n-go establishment so I can't count this as a fault.

Definitely one of the closest attempts at real Mexican style food. Highly recommended if you have a penchant for real burritos or real tacos.

Its undeniable that Gordo Taqueria on Collge Ave. has the best mexican food around town. Im no food critic but from what I can say having lived in Berkeley for 15 years, these are the best. The meat is cooked with such skill, the tortillas are so large, and every bite has you demanding more. I love Gordos, I love the atmosphere and I love the "All Meat" packed burrito with hot sauce, gaucomole, salsa, beans, jalepeos, sourcream, rice, and cheese that they serve me. GET YOURS TODAY!

PROS: Indgredients, Size, Money
CONS: N/A

some of the best burritos and tacos I've been able to find on this side of the bay! Staff could be a little friendlier. I've been going there on a regular basis for 8 years, I've never once had an employee have any hint of recognition towards me when I go there. A smile and a greeting couldn't hurt, but whatever...

Pros: quality, price

Cons: parking, long lines at lunch times

Their burritos are awesome. It has to be the meat; it's so moist. And Gordos is very inexpensive, super burritos for less than five dollars? You can't go wrong.

Gordo's manages to retain the charm of a small taqueria despite actually being a chain. Their seafood burritos are amaing, as are their quesadillas. Highly Recommended

The burrito's at Gordo's Taqueria on College Avene are some of the best I've ever had! The flavor of their rice and beans are so classic and tasty. I love the hot sauce too! The prices are totally reasonable and if you only have like a dollar you can still get a delicious quesadilla. Very highly recommended!

Gordo has a truly local flavour in its style of cooking. It is a terrific Mexican restaurant that uses traditional ingredients. You can but burritos, tacos or "Gordo plates" that can be carnitas, chicken or steak. It is a wonderful place!
