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.

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.

Plenty to choose from here and you get a lot for you money. Quite a few salsas to choose from as well. Not a bad stop in a town full of Mexican restaurants.

Los Jilbertos is very simple: order at the counter, wait a very few minutes, pick up order at the counter, ENJOY! The place has a loyal following of the local population and we eat there every time we come to Borrego Springs from Portland, OR. We notice that typically we'll see delivery drivers from out of town (like FedX, UPS,... More

Large and tasty breakfast burritos and I can never finish their super nachos. I have to bring half of it home for later.

Yummy horchata. Large servings. Good value. Our fish tacos and chimichanga was very good. Right on the main drag in Borrego Springs.
