“Get the carnitas!”
Reviewed August 27, 2011

Los Roberto's is just a little place in a strip mall. Nothing fancy and no liquor license, but the carnitas tacos are fantastic. The meat is so tender and well seasoned, then the cook throws it on the grill for a while to make the edges crispy. There's a small salsa bar with half a dozen selections that are a little different every time and they're open 24/7. Just wish I could get a cold cerveza!

“West Coast Mexican Food! Yay!”
Reviewed January 30, 2009

If you are from the west coast you'll love Roberto's. There is a difference between Tex-Mex and West Coast Mexican food. The Carne Asada is fabulous. The shredded beef tacos and rolled tacos take me back to my San Diego days. (And if you happen to be from San Diego - yes, this is the same Roberto's!) It is owned by a wonderful family and the portion's are really satisfying. The Carne Asada fries are delicious and can be shared by two or three people. I always ask for a half-order because it's just so much and so delicious. Definately, give them a try!
