Great Burritos

If you are here on the weekend come early or make a reservation. Libby's is one of very few restaurants in Philo. Family owned and operated service is casual, and the burritos huge, perfectly spiced and just enough to eat. The house made tortilla chips are addictive. Great for eat in or take out.

No matter if you have a tostada or the carnitas or a daily fresh fish special, you cannot go wrong with this family owned restaurant. Delicious in every sense. Local brews and wines served at reasonable prices.

Great Mexican food. We ate at Libby's our first night in Anderson Valley and enjoyed it very much. Fresh salsa and chips and the guacamole was very good. Food was a bit different than Tex-Mex, but very tasty.

Their al pastor burrito is SO delicious. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his toatada. You will be rubbing shoulders with locals, and the food is outstanding.

We recently stayed in Philo at The Madrones. Located right down the road was the cutest Mexican Restaurant. We ate very well and enjoyed every bite. Tried to re-visit a few nights later and were turned away because they had run out of food. Really good prices and really good food. Never been to a restaurant that ran out of... More

We eat at Libby's several times a year. The food is consistently delicious. If there is a seafood special, order it. The seafood is fresh and well prepared.

Something different and authentic. Surroundings were pretty basic but clean. Food tasted great. Massive portions. Enchiladas were amazing. Would return again.

I have been going to Libby's for years. The carnitas, chicken Cesar and even the burgers are fabulous.

We were still full from a late lunch, so we only had drinks, a quesadilla, and guacamole and chips. Therefore, we can't really judge the authenticity of the food, but the actual Libby is working in the kitchen and in the casual, small-town-style dining area. Locals that we met while wine touring attested to the quality of the food. We... More

Philo, where Libby's is located, is off the beaten track but we are looking for excuses to return to savor amazing Mexican food. Our party of 4 enjoyed a carnitas plate as well as three orders of the daily special of carnitas fajitas. The meat was tender, perfectly cooked, with a good mix of juicy chunks and crispy bits.
