A welcome addition to Telegraph Avenue — it’s been there a while, we were just a little slow off the mark — is Gordo, the sixth restaurant in the popular Bay Area taqueria group’s portfolio. It joins Berkeley’s existing Gordo on College Avenue and four more, three in San Francisco and one in Albany.

The new Gordo is located at 2404 Telegraph at Channing in one of the retail spaces available in the Telegraph Commons building, which is an independently owned complex of private dormitories for students. Given that the building is within spitting distance of campus, this is double-whammy good news for Cal kids.
