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

A lot of locals as well as "out-of-towners" enjoying eating at Roberto's. They have a restaurant with tables and booths, outside eating area and a full bar upstaris. Try the Mexician Pizza. Two people can share this dish. Go early by 5:00 and you not have to wait for a table.

It was a packed parking lot, a twenty-five minute wait, but it was well worth it. I ordered the shrimp stuffed chili reno. I would order that over and over! My husband ordered the carnitas fajitas. It was very good. Service is friendly and fast. I would come back to this place anytime and wait thirty minutes to boot.

We were visiting Mammoth Lakes for 4 nights recently, and after checking out potential local restaurants online, before leaving on this trip, we decided that Roberto’s sounded like a place we might like to try. After eating there our first night in town, we enjoyed Roberto’s so much that we went back a few nights later. They have a nightly... More

Great little place! We knew it would be good when we couldn't find a parking space anywhere near the restaurant. It was full. This is a relatively small restaurant, but the food was great - and lots of it! If you enjoy Mexican food, give this place a try! We're sure you'll like it.

The food was New Mexico Mexican IMO, and they did pork extremely well. The posole is just amazing. If you have never tried it this is the place to try it. We also liked the carnitas burrito, and the ground beef tacos used a better than average meat and it seemed like they had grilled it, then broken it up... More

Roberto's is one of our "staple" restaurants when we come home to Mammoth! They have great food and servers! We make it a regular practice to get in on Saturdays, or Sundays for their delicioso pasole`! Another fave is their spinach enchilada plate...oh yes, Larry's Salad, too! I think you will like Roberto's Mexican Cafe`...

Roberto's is a great restaurant steeped in mammoth tradition. My family are regular patrons at this comfy location. I rate three stars because the food is too salty- and a little out priced. My favorite is the Larry salad and my husband is of course an el jefe. Great margaritas.
