“Gordito's Was Awesome!!! Grrrrreat Mexican Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

My friend was telling me how great Gordito's was, and the 'other' Mexican restaurant was closing at 9pm (Favelas - which didn't want my business) we decided to visit this particular restaurant. Man, it did not disappoint!!! The restaurant was nicely decorated with tile ornaments, we were promptly seated and the food selection were pretty good. I got the Gordito's Grande platter with Two Tacos (Cane Asada ) and Enchilada platter with rice and beans. Yum!!! Our server. 'Andrew' was very friendly and always refilled our drinks. I will be back - FIVE CLAWS UP!!!!! Thanks for reading my review of Gordito's Mexican Restaurant of Fairfield, CA next to Chuck E Cheese kids restaurant. Joe "The Bear" Goria of LA, CA

“Sister came to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

My sister came from out of town and we always have to go to Gordito's when she is here. The all you can eat lunch is the best. Good selection and the best potatoes ever. The potatoes are combined with green chilies and other good things. The staff always greets you and very prompt service.

“Gordito's Mexican Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Good food, plenty of it and a good variety on the menu. Many times there are large groups there for celebrations, which tells you it is a great place to meet. We have eaten here several times over the years and we have always come away full. Occasionally we have been there when they have brought in a live entertainer to sing to the customers.

“good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2013

Well, the food was tasty, and it was nice to have some spice while this native Texan was away from home....but it wasn't the best service in the world. It took several minutes for staff to acknowledge that I was waiting to be seated, and actually walked out once because of this....The weekends they have a Mariachi band who will play selections for you at your table, which adds to the festive atmosphere
