Really good authentic food.

We stopped here for lunch. It was clean and warm inside. Food was hot and the salsa had just the right amount of kick to it. My only complaint would be that we felt rushed to leave by the waitress and no it wasn't busy.

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.

REAL Mexican food served here. I love the duck, (yes, duck) burrito. Slow simmered, tasty, served in a BIG burrito with red sauce. Not swimming in it. Just enough. Want it spicy? Just ask! Salsa is made fresh daily. Some days it's hot, some not so hot. (Spicy) Part of Roberto's charm. The entrees are always consistently good. Outdoor seating... More

The best customer service on the whole town!!!!I Walked into several neighboring restaurants and was not even acknowledged after waiting at least 5 to 10 minutes. Same thing the following night. You would think after a down season, these restaurants would be bending over backwards for customers. Food was amazing... steak burrito one night, shrimp stuffed chili relleno the next.... More

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.
