Everyone in my family is a vegetarian. Gordito's has high quality, tasty, and cheap food to satisfy the entire family. Whenever we are in Cabarete, this restaurant is always in the rotation a number of times. This is California style Mexican food. Clean. Well run. Hits the spot.

Excellent burritos and tacos. Fresh and home-made ingredients, which creates a Natural flavor much better and very far away from tex mex and the likes. The fish burritos are great

Our family went here and all six of us are dying to go back! American bistro/taco shops(cafe rio) don't hold a candle to it! So fresh, so amazing! And the service was equally awesome. I got the fish tacos and I don't even love fish, but I could eat them every day...

The tacos and burritos were amazing, and are made of the finest quality. Menu prices were very reasonable and the portion sizes were massive. Highly recommend. A must visit if you're staying in the Dominican... More

Gordito's Fresh Mex has the best Mexican in DR. Tacos are one of my favorite foods and Gordito's fish taco is one of the best I've ever had anywhere. It's about an hour from my home and we go every time we can find a reason to head that way. It's a cool little place, the food is soo consistently... More

Being from Southern California right by the border of Mexico, I can confidently say that I know good Mexican food, something that is near impossible to find in the DR. And as an expat, I long for good Mexican food! Gordito's is everything you could imagine and more. Good food, chill atmosphere, and more importantly... good people! We've been here... More

When they say fresh mex, they mean it. The moment you put the food in your mouth, you taste Mexico. Good, friendly service. Simple menu, but everything I've had is delicious. Try the fish tacos or the "rogue mambo". If you can appreciate good food, you won't be disappointed.

Good food. There is no bathroom, so don't drink too much sangria.The food is made right in front of you and is super fresh. We had beef tacos, fish tacos and a fish burrito. The toppings were great and well distributed throughout the burrito. The employees are friendly and polite.

We are so happy you enjoyed your food. Thank you for coming. We absolutely DO have a bathroom, it is in the hallway about 10 feet from the front door and is clearly marked. The key is kept right next to the cash register, but during busy hours it is left unlocked. we are so sorry you did not ask... More
