This is 100 percent my favorite place for Mexican food in Chico. I've tried almost everything on their menu, and it never disappoints. The reviews that claimed Gordon has no flavor must have no taste buds. Their burritos, nachos, enchiladas, and shrimp dishes are fabulous. The prices are hard to beat, and they have the best Mexican rice in town.

this place is fair, at best.
i came here once and had great corn tortillas with my meal. Next time i came, the tortillas were thin and cheap.
The carrots on the salsa bar were great the first time, and the next time they were raw.
food has very little flavor. it is cheap and plain.

The service is fast and the food is good and the prices are too. They also own a taco truck which is always number one on the News & Reviews Best of Chico list. The owner is really personable and the burritos are huge. I love their tacos which are 2.00. They have a red, a green, and a fresh tomato salsa too. They also cater.

You get a huge burrito for $3.50 at breakfast and $6 in the evenings. A great value because I find I can eat one of these burritos and skip the next meal. One thing that is both a blessing and a curse is the sensation of fullness and the feeling that the food is still with you hours later. If your on a budget or you knew you would need to skip a meal than this is the place to go. Not a place to take a date, it's located in a service station and you have to go into the gas station to get drinks.

You definitely want to go with hot on your sauce choice. I tried medium and it was too bland.
