I highly recommend the Pollo asada or Carne Asada tacos with delicious meat, fresh Pico de gallo, guacamole and homemade, thick corn tortillas. Major yum. Very friendly staff and nice clean place. The only drawback is all the Styrofoam used to serve the food on. But the food is wonderful!

This is a great place to get a large serving of good quality Mexican food. I had the fish tacos and they were good. The beans and rice were only average but very acceptable. Service was speedy. Make sure to bring cash, they do not accept plastic. I was looking for a place to get decent food for a large... More

Fast and plentiful. Taquitos were overdone but there were so many we ate them! Fresh quacamole! Burrito, enchila all excellent! Priced right. You can watch the chef cook your meal. Get the carne Asada!

This place has good quick take-out tacos. Good sauces. Not great food, but I left happy. I actually ate here several times so I must have thought it was pretty good. I had the pollo asada tacos and also the pollo asada burritos.

Its' great, it has its own style, one eats on outside tables, on the many carpets he puts on the sand, when the wind blows, it's a good thing ! The food is homemade, therefore good. Not expensive, beer, and it is really a local hang out and I love it !

I have been back to Los Jilbertos both at the beginning of summer and a few days ago in August and I'm glad to say I didn't see those ugly fundamentalist tracts on display either time. It feels like a friendlier place now.

Actually my favorite food here is the UFO. It's basically a tostado with what seems to be a flat deep fried shell. Los Jilbertos is very convenient taco shop and more that is located right off the main drag. You quickly order from the counter, and the place keeps early morning and late hours seven days a week. The prices... More

I've been coming to the Anza Borrego Desert since I moved to San Diego county in 1998. The one stop I never miss at Christmas Circle is Jilbertos. Two words: Fish Tacos. Get one - go to HEAVEN. I mean heaven. You will thank me. Just do it. Authentic Mexican take out at its finest, with indoor seating and tables... More

We were a group of 40 that arrived just before noon and we were served in a prompt manner and all agreed that the food was very good. We had not notified them that we were coming and they did a super job .

The food we had was generic, nothing special. There are better choices in town if you want Mexican food.
