Pretty everything at this restaurant deserves a passing grade but not much more. I had to ask twice to get an item that I requested. After delivering our meal the waiter never checked back to see if we needed water or anything else. The fajitas were decent. The beef fajita was more like... read more

Excellent service, extensive menu for food and for tequila drinks. Incredible margarita selections! My husband had the shrimp stuffed chili relleno and I had the enchiladas rancheros. Both dishes were fantastic. My husband also added the abondigas soup which was loaded with meatballs and tasted great.

Stopped by for lunch. My wife had the shrimp tostada and I went with fish tacos. Both were exceptional! Best Mexican food in town!

Every time we stay in Mammoth, we go here for Mexican food. Great tasting, and large portions, not expensive. This last time tried the shrimp enchiladas and they were so good. Servers are very friendly, smiling, nice.

All too often, meals in a popular tourist destination are just ho-hum, maybe a bit above average, often a bit or a lot below, but nothing to write home about, unless, of course, you eat in fine dining restaurants. We don't. We spend our money on the things to see and do, scrimp on the room and the food, at... More

This place was great! We sat up in the bar area and had drinks with dinner. The list of margaritas was impressive and unique, and the ones we chose were just as awesome. We will definitely be hitting this place up again next time we're in Mammoth!

Roberto's is quite an establishment in Mammoth Lakes.The food is very good and fairly priced. We have been eating there since they first opened as a very small cafe, probably 20 years or so ago. Since then, the restaurant has expended and has added an upstairs bar area. We highly recommend it.

We enjoyed two wonderful dinners at Roberto's during our week stay in Mammoth Lakes. The first night I ordered Larry's Salad and it was awesome. Everything was so fresh and delicious. The second time I tried the fish tacos and was not disappointed. The margaritas were great also. I will definitely go back to Roberto's when I return to this... More

Good food, fun atmosphere, a really good value. You can't go wrong, the portions are large and very tasty. So you want to a filling après ski dinner then Roberto’s is the place for you.
