While the new location doesn't have the the charming patio and fountain room, it is a tribute to the original. The Robert's Tacos and the salsa taste just as delicious as they ever have. I have had the same waitress for literally my whole life....More

I came in with a group of runners after the half marathon on Feb 25th. We had a larger group (12). We told them we had that many and she kept asking "are you sure?" several times in a rude tone. She finally told us...More

To start, Carol our server was fantastic, courteous and "Johnny on the spot". Food was delicious, chimichanga and chilli Verde were very good. Chips and salsa were brought to the table quickly, almost as soon as we were seated.

The food was terrible and the place was filthy. We were there mid-afternoon and the place was empty. The waitresses were sitting in a booth across the room shooting the breeze. If you have time to lean(or sit), you have time to clean. Sadly, this...More

Food was ok, spiced sour cream was good. I ordered stuffed shrimp quesadilla , wish it was hot and shrimp cut into pieces instead of whole shrimp falling out of every bite . My beau ordered steak picado - it's his favorite he loved it...More

Dominic, the manager/bartender was very friendly and efficient. The Bean Dip was pretty good and the Fajita Salad was good too. Could have used black beans on the salad. The Margarita was premixed and tapped like a beer. I couldn't taste the tequila and have...More
