Bully and Tyrant Owner – Recently, I had the misfortune to dine at Gordo’s with my family who were visiting from out of town. When we arrived, the Owner was sitting in a chair near the front door….asleep. When he awoke from his nap, he jumped up to greet us. He showed us to our table and when my mother commented to the server that she felt the house wine was overpriced. The Owner proceeded to come to our table and lecture us that his rent is $500/day and he pays $3.50 for that glass of HOUSE wine and then $0.90 tax. Clearly we must look like we just fell off the turnip truck. Then we witnessed him chastising the wait staff in front of customers. This man is a TYRANT and a BULLY to his staff and his clients. Admittedly, the food was good and our server did everything she could to make up for the Owners ignorance and lack of class. It was clear why the restaurant was nearly empty. He will never have to worry about me or anyone I know darkening his door ever again.
horrible experience – I bought a coupon to use at this restaurant. This is the only reason we ate there.
I got the spaghetti with meat sauce. Yuk. awful.
When I gave the coupon to the server the manager came out and said "where did you get this". He kept leaving and coming back like he couldn't find the information. Bottom line he wouldn't honor the coupon.
His employees commented on his actions. Guess he's not a good employer.
Anyway will NEVER go back.
Gordo's Rocks! - Well Done – Wow! My wife and I just had dinner at Gordo?, Preston Center for the first time, we took my mom and dad as a treat and boy were we pleased; I don?t know why we haven?t been here before. Everything, especially my seafood pasta was simply wonderful. The service was excellent every need was anticipated and George the General Manager made us feel special. Everything was priced very reasonable. GREAT FOOD ? GREAT SERVICE ? GREAT PRICE ? We we?ll be back soon.
Howling Good Place – This is the place we have been looking for for a long time. Id does not have the big open room that most heve. You feel like you are in the place almost all by yourselves. The food is great but the rest makes one of a kind. This is the way to go for dining out.
Great relaxing place to enjoy with family and friends – Gordos is a great place to enjoy a relaxing lunch with family or friends. The staff is great and very attentive and makes you feel at home. My family and I had the " Great White Pizza and I most say it is the best around. I recommend this place and tell your friends:)
Gotta try the Great White Pizza! – We make it a point to visit Gordo's if we find ourselves in Dallas, and we are never disappointed. My favorite dish is the Great WHite Pizza with a side of the house dressing, a rich-tasting tarragon vinagrette that makes the house salad a real treat.
Fabulous Italian Dining – My husband always impresses me whenever he takes me on a date to Gordo’s. Both of us enjoy the wonderful hospitality all of the wait staff shows. Next time you visit Gordo’s, be sure to try the tomato basil soup, and their world-famous variety pizza; these two fine selections will surely delight your taste buds.
Five Stars for Gordo's – Our family loves Gordos. The atmosphere is cozy and the food is delicious. We have always been served in a timely manner and with great care. My favorites are the Greek salad, The Great White Pizza, and the mouthwatering steak. This restaurant gets five stars!
Fantastic!! – I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal at Gordo's. We live in Fort Worth, so whenever we make it out to Gordo's we always order extra to take home. The house salad dressing is the best I have ever had the opportunity to try. Their Greek salad is incredible and the pizza is fantastic. You can never go wrong ordering the specials, either. I am so glad they have re-opened!!
great food and service for the money! – We recently went to Gordos for dinner with my brother and sister-in law in Dallas (we are from Fort Worth). They recommended it as a decent place to go. We were so pleasantly surprised to find this little gem. The food was GREAT, and Ivan was one of the BEST waiters we have ever had at any restaurant...he was attentive and fun. I had the Chicken Artichoke, and my wife had the Rainbow Trout Almondine. Both were really tasty and perfectly cooked. My in-laws had a Gourmet Combo Pizza that they shared. GREAT VALUE, GREAT TIME and GREAT TASTE. Try it, you'll like it!
