Good menu, good food and service. Just about a half a mile from main street. Reliable place to go when your hungry. Ample amounts on the plate. Clean and good service. Family oriented.

We visited this past week and Roberto was a good as we had remembered. The flour chips are a must, their salsa is great. The kids meals are huge.

Arrived with 3 others, without a reservation. Although crowded they squeezed us in. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. The food was fantastic, good Mexican food, flavoursome without stodgy. Good beer selection. A waitress accidentally spilled a beer down my back. They were very apologetic, and without me asking, deducted my food bill from our collective tab. Having eaten out... More

We are a family from Australia with three kids 11, 14 & 17 and went to Roberto's for a quick dinner tonight after reading excellent reviews on T/A. We had a great experience and would recommend it for other travellers after good fresh healthy food, efficient and friendly service- and all at a reasonable price. We shared 3 mains between... More

Robertos is a "go to" for us when we're staying in Mammoth. Great margaritas tacos, burritos and enchiladas. The thing that saved us this trip is that the upstairs is open until 10pm. We were shut down for food ( everything closed ) in neighboring June Lake at 8:45 so we made the drive. The good was delicious and the... More

Burrito Grande was huge and enough to be shared by 2 (a 170 lb guy, and 130 lb girl). Great margaritas! Pretty healthy ingredients for a Mexican restaurant.

My family looks for Mexican restaurants at home and when traveling. Roberto's is a busy restaurant and cantina similar to those found in Southern California vacation cities. Roberto's is not just very good for a small city like Mammorh. It would be very good and one of our "go to" restaurants in San Diego and Orange County. We wish it... More

I went to Mammoth Lakes to take my grandson Jeeping. We were hungary and spotted Robertos on the way back to the RV park. What a pleasant surprise, the food was wonderful.The staff had a great attitude and the food selection was out standing. I would say it was almost too much food. My grandson is 14 and boy can...
