My dining buddy has long adored Gordita's, but he usually tells me the food would be too spicy for me so it's been awhile since I stopped by. So for his recent birthday we went to Gordita's for breakfast. Our booth had a great view of the Gulf and with the lively background music we felt like we were in the Yucatan! There were plenty of breakfast choices on the menu, including a wide array of traditional Mexican dishes. Of course we started with coffee which was plenty strong, and served with real half-&-half, to my companion's delight. Our waitress was quick to refill our cups. Even at breakfast they serve chips with red and green salsa, both great tasting (the green is hotter!).
My favorite Mexican breakfast is Migas, so I ordered those with the sauce on the side in case they were too picante for me. They weren't and I wound up pouring all the sauce on the scrambled eggs and tortilla pieces, and loving every bite. The sauce was very flavorful with lots of onion and tomato.
My friend chose the Huevos Chilangos, scrambled eggs with tomatoes, onion, chorizo, and bacon (no jalapeños served due to recent health advisories). He told me it was plenty spicy and tasty. He loaded it up with extra hot sauce, of course. His dish was accompanied by Mexican rice, which he said was very flavorful and fluffy with carrots, corn and peas.
Both dishes came with chilaquiles in red sauce, potatoes, refried beans, sour cream, and of course crumbled Queso Blanco (white cheese) on the side. It was OK but not at the top of my list of favorites. We had the choice of corn or flour tortillas, both fresh.
This place serves very authentic Mexican food. If you don't speak Spanish on arrival, you will feel like doing so when you leave. Be sure to bring cash money because they don't accept checks or credit.
