Accidentally posted my review of this restaurant on Nevados....Robertos is the one with the great chicken rice soup, and guacamole; quick service and reasonably priced; and open when we were 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

When in Mammoth, you need to stop in for happy hour and dinner! The food is okay for mexican food in the area. Little overpriced for the quality.

If it's cold out you have to get the soup at Roberto! It's a local and tourist place and it's an absolute must! There most famous for margaritas but everything was good!

Good Mexican food at reasonable (for Mammoth) prices. Their marguertas area the best around. Service is quick, even tho the place is small.

The margaritas were nice and large. The food was delicious and had many unique dishes for a reasonable price. I had the shrimp stuffed chile relleno. All of our meals were tasty. A very very long wait.

Called ahead for reservations, and so glad I did. Very busy place. Food and service were excellent. The only snag is parking...not a whole lot of that! We were able to park about 1/2 a block away.

I love their salsa and their tostadas. Burritos are also yummy. Nothing fancy, but good old fashioned mexican food. This is a favorite in the area, so be prepared to wait. We get here before 5pm so we don't have to wait, even then the...More
