I don't know why more restaurants don't follow Roberto's formula- large portions of good food for a reasonable price- and good strong drinks. There is no way to leave Roberto's unsatisfied. The place was packed- and it easy to see why.

We were referred to Roberto's by a friendly ski instructor. We were not disappointed. The food was savory, the portions generous, service was very good and the pricing was very reasonable. And they carry my fav Mexican beer, Bohemia!! What more could we ask for. The duck filled casadia was amazing as was the pork tamale.We'll be back:-)

Good food, nice portions! The only drawback is that they are very busy and the wait can be long! Usually, we skip this place on weekends!

We have been eating here since 1995 and the food is fantastic! The service is always great. We even get food to go before heading back to LA. The chicken Quesadilla are the best!

We were taken to Roberto's by a friend of ours during our ski trip. We were seated immediately and served chips, salsa and a pitcher of water. We were there on a Wednesday evening and by the time we left, there were a few parties waiting for a table. So get there early unless you want to wait, the food... More

The chips and salsa were good. The food is good, not as good as you would get in the LA area but probably the best Mexican in Mammoth

I came here for my first time couple weeks ago and left very pleased. The server was generous with the chips and salsa which is always a good start (TIP: ask for the flour chips, they're soft, delicious and I think they're better than the normal! And if you like spicy, go for the habanero salsa). We ordered the Duck... More

Typical Mexican fare, healthy portions. Chips fare, salsa hot and spicy. Hubby had chicken quesadilla and shared a chicken taco and chile relleno combo plate all very good. The la Bamba margarita was tasty and strong.
