In 1994, Marlene Hall, originally from Hawaii, and her husband Gabriel Ramirez, originally from Jalisco, Mexico, opened up a restaurant inspired by Gabriel’s healthy, fresh home-cooking. Named as a tongue-in-cheek homage to their young son Shannon, Gordito’s has since become renowned for their famed baby-sized burritos.

  1. This is one of my favorites in the Greenwood area! Their portions are so generous, and their indoor dining area is really spacious. I love all of the different options for salsas. Their food also has an emphasis on being more healthy than other options, which I really appreciate. I am having my first child soon, and can’t wait to get their baby burrito (burrito grande) to compare to our newborn!

  2. One of the all-time best burrito joints in all of Seattle. Portions are big and spices are on point. As a vegetarian, I’ve been scarred by stray meat hiding in other places’ food. Not at Gorditos. They are committed to keeping vegetarians happy. Their Veggie Veggie burrito has it all. Pro tip – get it “wet.”
