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.

Wine touring from Seattle, we craved the quality Mexican we can't find back home, but Sonoma County let us down. Twice. Libby's was recommended by a tasting room rep. We found quick service, spacious dining room, ridiculously large wine list, and short menu. Many usual Mexican favorites missing and no mix-match combos. Both items we ordered were hot, well-spiced (no... More

The establishment is low key and unpretentious to say the least. The food is anything but, it is by far the best Mexican food we have had along the Mendocino Coast and inland as well. The prices are more than reasonable, the service is good but again, most importantly, the food is terrific. Enjoy.

Living mostly in the central San Joaquin valley of California, we get exposed to a lot of Mexican cooking. But visiting a 2nd home near Mendocino on the northern coast, we go to Libby's whenever we are in the area. This is Mexican cooking at its best. Libby and her family are long time residents of Anderson Valley, and she... More

Where else can you eat authentic Mexican food washed down with a glass of really good Anderson valley Pinot Noir? We've been to Libby's on and off for a dozen years - Libby is still in the kitchen, cooking Camarones al Diablo and a few other really tasty dishes, the service is still consistently friendly, the portions are still generous...
