Authentic Mexican food in an unlikely location that has excellent flavor. Servings are plentiful and the owner's are onsite doing the cooking. Great stop for lunch on your trip to and from the coast. The restuarant is located in an historical building built in 1882 and relocated from Boonville to Philo.

We like to stop here for lunch on the way to the beach. Get there well before closing (2:00) to get the special. They put the closed sign out fifteen minutes early so plan on getting there early. We missed the green sauce enchiladas but enjoyed the super burrito with carnitas. My husband got the soft tacos with carnitas which... More

Amazing Mexican food! I am from Manhattan, but had lived in CA for years. I miss good, quality Mexican food like you wouldn't believe. We stopped here while in the area after reading the reviews, and this place didn't disappoint. It was awesome and inexpensive. Highly recommend!

Pleasant surprise to find very good Mexican food in Philo. Super friendly service. Prices a tad on the high side, but plates are generous.

Oh Libby's - how glad I am that I researched the area. And how ashamed I am that I almost didn't visit you because I was dubious that Mendocino could have epic Mexican food! Being from Southern California, I eat my share of excellent Mexican fare - so I almost slept on this great little place in Mendocino wine country.... More

Visiting in the area, we stopped at Libby's based on a friend's recommendation. It was a good choice. The place is quaint and lively, with a steady stream of sit down customers and to go orders. We ordered a variety of dishes and were all pleased with our meals. I thought their pinto beans were excellent and I don't normally... More

Is that a stretch? Absolutely not. You can't get any better than Libby's. Carnitas is amazing, as well as the Friday night fish specials.

Libby's is a casual spot in dowtown Philo. The food is excellent. We heard that people drive all the way from San Francisco to have the carnitas and I can see why, they were amazing. The guacamole had just the right amount of seasoning and spice from the jalepenos. Great family run restaurant.
