Extremely popular, you may have to wait.

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... read 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.

Went in late (9ish) on a Tuesday night and the 1st floor was closed, but they were serving the same menu in the bar area upstairs. Which turned out okay, they had high chairs for our tot so we were good. I ordered the nachos appetizer + carne asada and it was piled high. I was really hungry and ate... More

This continues to be one of our favorite Mexican restaurants anywhere. The fish tacos are especially delicious. The not-greasy and not-too-salty chips with the has-some-heat salsa is hard to not over eat. The wood-lodge decor is nice and clean, with roomy tables. The only weak spot are the basic salads, but that's true to the Mexican style.

We ate at Roberto's last night after a long day of hiking. Wednesday was half price margarita night and the drinks were very good, no skimping on the tequila. Both of us had carnitas that came with a tasty sauce and yummy guacamole and pico de gallo, beans and rice. Service was very prompt. The servings are so huge that... More
