“Huge servings. Good fast food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Yummy horchata. Large servings. Good value. Our fish tacos and chimichanga was very good. Right on the main drag in Borrego Springs.

“Huge burritos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Everything we have ordered here is good. Their burritos are a meal in themselves so if you don't have a big appetite split one of them. I love horchata and they have two other aguas frescas as well.

“Breakfast Burrito”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

We had breakfast burritos ($3.99) - each was incredible, tasty with many combos to choose from, and gigantic.

“Good, Fast, Cheap and Open Late (sort of).”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

This is the closest thing to a fast food restaurant that you will find in Borrego Springs. It features the usual assortment of tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc., served up on paper plates or in styrofoam containers, with rice and beans if you like. Service is friendly and fast (orders are taken and served at the counter), the food is tasty, and the prices are cheap.

This is also where you end up for dinner if you don't plan ahead. While every other dining establishment in Borrego Springs closes at 9:00 pm or earlier, Jilberto's is open until 10:00 pm most nights, sometimes later on weekends.
