Over the years Gordos has consistently delivered perfectly prepared carnitas burritos for those who actually do work for a living. I doubt you will see bankers, hedge fund investors and other societal bloodsuckers here. The guy who made my burrito knew what he was doing. At first, I questioned how clean his hands were...then I noticed that he was wearing a wedding ring--which, in turn, distracted me from thinking about cleanliness. This is a burrito for the common person made by a common person. I watch the expert as he works building the burrito, even layers of rice, beans, guacamole and carnitas were rolled in such a way that every bite combined a little bit of each layer. Quite a tight roll, too. This was near burrito perfection, and the fact that at least one of the cooks has a family to help provide for makes me want to support Gordos all the more.
