Since we're from Texas, our standards for comida mexicana are quite high. We stop at this taqueria every time we can while driving on I-5. It has everything: menudo, lengua, cabeza, the best carnitas ever, tasty salsa verde, fresh and tender tortillas. One heads up: the soft tacos are made with mini tortillas, so one taco will never do!

Needed a break heading north. I had the birria platter... a yummy soup. It came with great refried beans. Ken had 2 Carna Asada tacos which were good! We will stop next time we're in the area.

Having read some good reviews of Roberta's Taqueria here on Yelp, the little wife and I decided to give it a try along our way to see the grandson in Redding. Simply put, its terrible. Three tepid, over-priced tacos made in barely heated corn tortillas 3 inches in diameter for $9.50. There was not more than two tablespoons of gristly... More

This "taco stand" style restaurant is quite nice. Seating is all outside. The food is authentic style and the portions are large. Our meals could have used a little more flavor/seasoning but were still quite good.

The absolute real deal. Unbelievably good. I had been living in a place where I could not get Mexican food that was very authentic and on my roadtrip I happened to stay in Williams. I saw this place and was immediately drawn to it. I got a carnitas burrito and thought I was suddenly in Heaven. I wish I could... More

Most people probably think Granzella's when looking for a restaurant stop in Williams - but they will be missing an excellent food experience if they don't stop at Roberta's. Don't be put off be the dirt parking lot - head straight for the order window and treat yourself to one of the greatest burritos anywhere! This little place gets a... More

This place was very good. It sits in an old fast food BUILDING of some kind amidst several major chain fast food sites close to the off ramp. There is drive through, or covered outside eating. We did not know what to think when we drove up, but we did notice that there was a long line of local cars... More

Roberta's is a great dive for quick Mexican food that has flare and flavor. I love the enchiladas and when the weather is nice, you can grab a table to eat there.

Roberta's only has outdoor seating, but we did not have time for a sit down meal. We wanted something we could grab quickly for breakfast on the run. We stopped at Roberta's and ordered the Chiorzo Burrito. For only $5, it was a large burrito stuffed with chiorzo, eggs, potatoes and other veggies. Highly recommended if you are on the... More
