3. Gordo’s Taco’s & Tequila
Gordo’s Taco’s & Tequila is passionate about and committed to your pleasurable dining experience. Our staff is trained to welcome each guest before they even open the door, if possible, and continue that elevated level of customer respect from that moment forward. If you have any concerns, please mention them to your server.
Located walking distance from the Boardwalk and just a half mile from Ripley’s Believe It or Not is a favorite of ours. Gordo’s is very affordable and a great place to take the entire family for good authentic Mexican food. The BBQ Chicken Wings was our choice as an appetizer they were a little spicy but cooked to perfection. As our main course, we both ordered the Combination Beef, Chicken, and Shrimp Fajita’s prepared with a side of rice, guacamole, sour cream, lettuce, and Pico de gallo. Hands down I have never had Fajita’s as amazing as the platter that I enjoyed at Gordo’s.
Gordo’s offers an extensive selection of tequila to enjoy for those of you over the age of 21, and I can promise you the Margarita’s are so refreshing worth every penny. While at Gordo’s check-out the decor and the personalize tiles on the floor quite the conversation piece. The staff at is a lot of fun and very customer friendly if you’re looking for exceptional service, great food, and affordable prices check out Gordo’s Tequila & Taco’s.

Each table is provided with fresh blueberry mini muffins to indulge on while waiting on their food. We had the pleasure of enjoying Shrimp & Grits prepared with andouille sausage, fried green tomatoes, roasted red peppers, and pimento cheese grits. We also ordered to share the Turkey Pretzel Club made with warm turkey, bacon, melted swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato & honey mustard served on a pretzel bun, with house-made chips. For dessert, the staff prepared a little something special for us as a welcome gift to the city which was a three piece dessert platter plated with three different cake flavors and a fruit sauce to enjoy.
The price point at this locations was also family affordable. Call ahead reservations are encouraged because the restaurant was extremely busy during our visit.
