This is quite possibly the worst food I have ever experienced. A plate full of brown mush with barely recognisable ingredients. It was inedible. The only saving grace was I was not charged for it. Go there with low expectations and you still will be disappointed.

I have been going to Roberto's consistently for so long I cannot remember (probably since it opened.) The drinks are outstanding, and the food is top quality!! My husband loves burritos, and he claims their carne asada is the best! I love their tostado, and they are HUGE!!!! The meat they use is top notch. Try their bloody mary's!! Yum!... More

As usual, Roberto's had great service and great food. Busy night when we were there bu only waited 5 minutes for a table and the servers and staff were on it.

I'm from San Diego and Roberto's didn't let me feel like I missed good Mexican food. The service was excellent and the food was perfect.

My friend was flaunting how good this place is so we stopped by after skiing. The happy hour margaritas are GOOD. Potent and refreshing. But the basket of chips had been fried in rancid oil, which is detectable by its obvious stench and definitely a health hazard. After that, I didn't want to eat anything so we went elsewhere. Rancid... More
