Am in love with the tofu fajita style burrito. – I frequently visit the Everett location but decided to give the other location a try to make sure it was as good. Was amazed to see how much more crowded this one was, but happy to learn they had a parking lot and outdoor patio area. Food is equally as delicious, I have a hard time trying anything different as I love the tofu burrito so much, but I hear the quesadillas are pretty good too. Portions are huge, and if you need a bigger burrito you can get one the size of a baby for only 10$. I'm thinking of experimenting with this next time myself. What a great way to save money if you can find someone willing to split your burrito. Same great salsa bar, I even learned their salsa is being sold at Madison Market. Some people complain portions are too big, but I personally enjoy more food for my money.
A Very Good and Reliable Neighborhood Mexican Joint – When I sit down, the first thing that I do is pour their homemade salsa, also known as a Pihuamo Sauce, all over the top of the burrito to give it that extra kick. Diving in I'm hit with the savory flavors that I've come to expect from Gordito's. The tortilla has been warmed and is very nice and soft. The chicken is always juicy, never dried out. The rice is simply seasoned, and the black beans tender, but not mushy. And the red sauce finishes it perfectly, a fairly mild flavor that just meshes perfectly with everything else.

Truly "baby-sized" burritos! – Gorditos serves up delicious, authentic, Mexican food in enormous portions. One entree will serve an average person for two meals. I've heard tales of men with large appetites challenging each other to finish the baby-sized burritos - without much success, I might add. The food is great, especially accompanied by their fresh salsas and pico. The place is a bit of a hole in the wall, but that's all part of the charm. In cool days, settle in by the fireplace with a burrito or a plate of creamy chipotle chicken and imagine yourself in warmer climates. Burritos will set you back about $7, other entrees are between $8 and $11. Vegetarian and vegan options are numerous!
Love the big burritors – I love these cheap burritos. The building looks like a hole in the wall, but its authentic and tasty. Their large burrito is the size of a new born baby... so go hungry.
FISH BURRITO WAS OUTSTANDING! – This place has a great menu with well prepared food. There's nothing fancy here, just a solid meal. I got a Fish Burrito & my wife got a Prawn Taco. Both were excellent. Our only complaint was that we ordered them to go and when we finally had a chance to sit down and enjoy the hot wraps had fallen apart inside the foil wrappers. If you're getting yours too go, then pick up a fork and lots a napkins.
We will definitely go again!
Good and Cheap – Prices are cheap for the amount of food you get. One burrito can easily be split into two or three meals, and a super burrito can easily be split into three or four! It's not the best burrito I've ever had, but it is pretty tasty for the price.
No flavor, not even in the hot sauces. – Yes, my boss and I took a trip today to Gordito's. We usually eat at Pho Tic Tac across the street and see tons of people going in and out of Gordito's all the time. So we agreed that some day we'll try it out and today was "THE DAY."
I ordered the steak burrito (wet) with mild sauce and made it a "plate" order(which means it comes with rice and beans) and my boss ordered steak enchiladas plate. We have been to many Mexican restaurants like Jalisco's which is really good, Mr. Villas which has homemade tortillas and really great mole sauce(my boss' preferred sauce), and I like Chipotle because of the freshness of their meats and vegetables especially the lettuce. Any ways, we were excited to eat and the place was just full of patrons, so we had really high expectations. However, we were entirely disappointed with the quality of flavor, wait a minute, what quality???
There was no flavor on the steak pieces, the salsa was very bland, but they did give us quantity. The burrito was huge, but it didn't make up for the lack of flavor.
So we sat there and finished our foods, only because I had paid $25 bucks for 2 plates and drinks to wash it down. Very disappointing. Will never go back!!!!!
We love Gorditos !!!! – We love this place !!! We have been going for years.
The prices don't change very often. This year the prices did go up, just like everywhere else. I heard that their cost went up about 20% but they only raise their prices by 5%. The 3% credit card charge is just a way to pass on the credit card charge that they pay. I think that it is great that they accept credit cards at all. I've heard that business owner pay rediculous amounts for accepting cards.
The food and service is worth every penny. The flavors are the same as they were when we discoverd Gorditos years ago. No matter how long I've been going there, my favorite is still the chicken fajita wet burrito (sometimes steak is my favorite). The burrito hasn't changed a bit, flavor and size. They did come out with a smaller item menu last year, and you can order your favorites in a smaller version. I still order the regular and take home leftovers, but this is a super nice option.
Thank you Gorditos !!!!!
Disappointed in the changes at Gorditos – I've been going to Gorditos for fun & fast Mexican food for several years. I went in last night for the first time in several months and was annoyed with the changes they have made to the menu. The food was the same, and still tasted pretty good (prawn fajita quesadilla is really the best thing I've found there and everything else is pretty standard). However, the "new" higher prices on the menu are for CASH ONLY and they will charge you 3% more for using a credit card. I had cash so I didn't complain, but come on! Why punish people for using a credit card? And I know 3% isn't much, but it surprised me for a restaurant to have this policy. The prices are already much higher than they were a couple years ago. Seems like they are getting arrogant with their reputation around Seattle and don't want to be bothered with customer service. I'm fed up with their rules (this new 3% thing & only ONE basket of chips per table) and don't think I will return. I'll miss the quesadilla but there is other good Mexican food around.
