Kids love it but I don't see it

I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought. I had several friends who had tried it and raved about it so had to give it a try but it didn't measure up for me.

Open 24/7 but mostly busy at night. A great drive-through stop when in a hurry. Informal inside dining too. Young crowd. Love the burritos.

You might need a shower when you leave there the place is so dirty but the food is classic mexican with all the favorites. Carne Asada burrito is a go to for me and I have never been disappointed. Fresh Salsa Bar is always a little scary but hopefully you didnt bring a date there and you are seeing double... More

It's either Filiberto's or Juanita's... that's where everyone ends up after a fantastic night out on the town in Encinitas.

It was always a bit too greasy for me ... there are so many other fresher and more delicious Mexican food options in Encinitas.

I don't rmember How many times I've run down to Filiberto's for a quick lunch or dinner take-out meal. Always a special treat. The Carne Assada burrito is easily a meal for two. My favorite of the north county Mexican eateries.

Real mexican food, huge plate, salty, fast service, not a fancy place. Cheap. Much better then Taco Bell. Great menu, lot of choices, if you like real tacos, enchiladas, etc.

Do not eat here unless u have no other option.. It is a late night hang out for all the scummy people of Encinitas & is highly unsanitary!

I had been here several times, usually just if I was in a hurry for drive-thru or if Raul's was closed. That was how we ended up here at about midnight one Saturday night. We had been working at cleaning out our garage all day, and were famished. On a whim, my boyfriend ordered the Cowboy Fries, french fries doused... More
