For the price you can't beat this place. Caution: if you order via drive thru check your order, especially, if you add cheese to anything. Several times I've paid for and not received it. Better selection of salsa inside too. Recommend the abobada (spicy pork) burrito. ($5.29). Girlfriend loves the chile relleno burrito ($4.89). Each burrito is a meal by... More

Close to the 405 south (or north). Quiet and safe. Delicious carne asada and cheese quesadillas. Local reviews rave about the nachos and asada fries. Fresh salsa!

Albertos offers more traditional Mexican food than Del Taco or Taco Bell. It's inexpensive and really tastes good. It's prepared fresh for your order, and much preferable to the other chains.

If you're craving decent Mexican food, but don't want to take time for restaurant table service, etc, drive in or thru Alerto's. Alertos' Carne Asada Burrito is a work of art! Or Try the three rolled taquitos with guacamole, or the carnitas taco (just a big taco fstuffed with carnitas, avocado and a bit of onions). Messy and wonderful, quite... More

Carne asada dishes are good and flavorful. Try their breakfast burrito you'll never go elsewhere. It's a small Mexican restaurant but enough to visit for your cravings.

It may not be the best atmospheric restaurant in Fountain Valley, but it is always work a trip to Alerto's for some fresh, high quality Mexican food. Cash only, but the prices are more than fair for the large portion you get. I highly recommend getting the super fries with everything to split with friends, they are absolutely amazing!

I love their food. The mixed burrito is my favorite. It's huge, delicious, and only 3.75. They could improve the decor and atmosphere but the food is excellent

Inexpensive, and did not have that chain taste. This is basically a takeout place, but it does have a few tables to use inside

Found this place at the last minute after our hotel breakfast was a bust. Great breakfast and delicious salsas. Very reasonable prices! Quick and friendly service. Drive through also avaliable.
