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

I've been eating hear for years. Most authentic Mexican Restaurant in Mmth. You can tell by the full parking lot. Only place in Mmth that sells menudo. Everything is good. Bar upstairs.

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.

Good Mexican, especially like the Heuvos Rancheros (discounted on Sundays during football). Pretty good happy hour but a bit pricey for Mexican food. Can't go wrong here, just expect to spend more than you think (pretty much the whole area is a bit pricier being a mountain town).

Try the lobster enchiladas or the shrimp stuffed chile reline! They are apparently now open until 10p on Friday and Saturday, which is great! Good food and service. Prices are a bit high, but it's a ski resort, and that is kind of the way it is everywhere up here.

I was so happy to find Roberto's Cafe in Mammoth. The food was so incredibly good and we had excellent service. There was so many options on the list, and the portions were huge! I ordered the Lobster taco and cheese enchilada plate and could only eat the taco because I ate so much of the tasty chips and salsa.... More
