The food was good; portions were huge - enough for dinner the next day, salsa really good but not for the squeamish (very hot!). Service was good and fast. Waiter was really nice. Carnitas burrito and shrimp chili relleno and guacamole were outstanding. Shrimp were very fresh. We're from S. California so that's a compliment. Waitress at Tamarack lodge recommended... More

This is one of our go to restaurants in Mammoth. By far the best Mexican food in town and ranks with the best anywhere.

Kamikaze bike weeknd, and the joint was hopping. Sat upstairs in the bar, enjoyed the mountain view at sunset. Cold beer, chips, good salsa, good menu! Good service. Lobster taquitos sounded appealing but were served barely warm. Taquitos need to be served hot! Duck enchiladas stuffed with duck were quite good. Sweetie had a chicken salad that came without chicken.... More

What a nice surprise to get good Mexican food in Mammoth! We ordered the pollo asada, and it was plenty of food for two of us. The chicken was super tender and very tasty. Great guacamole and a killer margarita. Highly recommend.

Me and my husband had a super delicious dinner at Roberto's. I had a veggie burito which is highly recommended (delicious!) and my husband ordered beef burito. Both were super tasty, easily the best buritos we ever had. Portions are huge, so do not even think of ordering any subs or starters! :-) Waiters were really nice and friendly. I... More

This cafe was hoppin'! Plenty of people waiting; both large and small dining groups. We did not mind the 15 minute wait. Despite how busy it was, service was fairly prompt, wait staff was friendly and helpful. We did not have any alcohol, were driving back to the hotel, so cannot comment on the margaritas! The menu is varied, many,... More

We've been there before, so we knew how tasty the margaritas were. This time though (last Tuesday evening) the food was not very flavorful. It was a very long night with upset stomachs. Disappointing. The silver lining was the sweet staff.
