Keep Gordo’s in mind as an affordable option for hearty tortas (sandwiches) and quesadillas in Bushwick. They serve good chunky guacamole with thick fried chips that, importantly, don’t break during scooping. The tacos all have plenty of meat - we like the pork butt, but the beef (“Gordo’s special cut”) is pretty bland. The huge burritos are worth sharing, especially the chorizo. We’d avoid most of the salads and large plates - the flank steak served with beans and rice isn’t worth $23, especially when it comes with absolutely no frills on the side.
