We were surprised to find the place so busy on a Monday. Fortunately the upstairs bar area is large and has open seating so we didn't have to wait the 20+ minutes for a table. The carnitas is excellent-- my partner had the dinner plate and I the burrito. Plenty to take home for another meal. The place is casual... More

Great Mexican food. Portions are large, always take home leftovers. They make the best Peach Margaritas.

Robert's serves excellent food and lots of it. The portions are very large and after a hard day skiing worth of your appetite. The service is amazing, we ordered a pitcher of margaritas and they arrived within 2 minutes. Food arrived very quickly, hot and everyone enjoyed the food. No one left hungry!

The food here is delicious especially after a day on the slopes. Happy hour Margaritas are only 3.00! And all of the margaritas are super good. The burritos are delicious and come with so much meat and seafood! The duck burrito keeps us coming back

Our family had dinner at Roberto's and really enjoyed it. They make a mean margarita! Especially after a day of skiing on the mountain. We had a carne asada plate and a chicken burrito. My son loved the fish tacos. All the food tasted delicious and we loved the salsa. They were very busy this night but all the staff... More

Great place to eat. Love the shops pollo e arroz (chicken and rice) soup. My favorite main course is the fajitas. Either lobster or shrimp...You can't go wrong except may not be able to finish it all. Best of all Wednesday Happy Hour is the best. The margaritas are great and they have a nice but simple food selection. Great... More

Tasty food, quick service in the bar, strong margaritas! Be sure and go early as it can get crowded and loud. We have visited on several occasions and have always had a great meal. Thanks again Roberto's!!

It's not just post-ski hunger that makes Robert's so good! Very authentic full of flavor food. Warm tortilla chips and delicious salsa come to the table right away. Service is attentive and friendly yet casual and not rushed. Fresh salads (Larry's salad is the bomb, I could only eat half!) The sauce that the fish in the fish tacos is... More

Great food (the duck burrito and chimi are excellent) pretty quick service - but it can get pretty busy and the upper level bar can fill up when you don't feel like formal dining on the main level.
