We were happy with our experience here!

We were on a two week trip and I would return here. Staff was efficient and very friendly. Food was good and a pleasant variation of the standard Mexican Restaurants. I was very pleased with our choice that night.

The place was very busy (around 6:30pm), but we found an open seat to the side of the bar upstairs. Food portions are very large and we saw most people walking out with to-go boxes. The food was average and the service okay. On the pricey side for Mexican of this standard, but we'll probably go back if really hungry... More

Really enjoyed our dinner. Had a short wait on a Sunday night but the food was worth the wait. This is a rather small place but the staff is very friendly and food service was fast. Really liked all we had.

Roberto's is a very popular dining spot for locals and tourists. The menu is varied and the bar takes up the entire second floor. We went at 7:00 p.m. on a week night and had to wait forty minutes to be seated. We ordered two standard orders: Pork Carnitas and Beef Fajitas. Both came with rice, beans, guacamole, and tortillas.... More

This place had great service..despite the crabby old guy sitting behind me who complained about his reservation. The food was not as good as I remembered but I did order something out of the ordinary for myself. I think if I had stuck with my go to Mexican items I would of given this a better review.

We tried this place based on TripAdvisor reviews and proximity to the condo we stayed in. They don't hold back on the tequila in the margaritas so we were happy with the short walk home. Food was very good, too.

We were 8 looking for a table at 6:30 on a weekend night during the motocross event at Mammoth Lakes. It took an hour to get seated but my meal was well worth the wait. I had a bowl of the best pork posole I have ever had. The pork was tender but not dried out and the hominy was... More

Fun atmosphere on the second floor. Great after a hike. Our group enjoyed the fish tacos. The house chips and salsa hit the spot.

Yes to some this restaurant may not serve 100% authentic Mexican food, but that it hold true to many of the traditions of the culture. What Roberto's food represents is a wonderful blend of Mexican-American food. For example, the cheese that is use on some of the dishes is yellow cheddar, yet it delivers the right taste for the meal.... More

Roberto's Mexican Cafe proved the positive. You CAN judge a Mexican restaurant by its Chile Relleno. Served with carnitas, during Restaurant Week in Mammoth Lakes, this was just ONE of the delightful dishes we enjoyed at this family restaurant. Tables were packed and rightfully so. Will definitely return to Roberto's.
