It's actually called Mr. Ruribertos Mexican Food. It's a great taco shop, as authentic as it gets. We made this a lunch stop for us while visiting Belmont Park. The prices are not inflated just because it's next to the amusement park and beach. The...More

It had been several years since we'd been here. We were so happy to see that Roberto's was still going strong! This is your typical dumpy, small, cheap beach town taco shop. The prices are cheap, and the food is really good! San Diego is...More

I traveled from the east coast to san diego with vision of a carne asada burrito on my mind, so sad it was not as good as I remember. Maybe next time it will be better.

Brought the fellas here for breakfast burritos before we all went to help my Dad pack. Gotta love the Cali tacos shops. We can’t get enough! Rolled tacos, burritos, spicy carrots, quesadillas. 😋

The fish tacos are good. All the food is edible, tasty, incredibly affordable and quick from order to table. Be warned-- the tables are not clean. This is a quick food chain.

This taco shop uses the lowest possible quality in food. They ran out of salsa when I was there. Water is only available in a styrofoam cup. Will never go back ... there are SO MANY other taco shops focused on good voices.
