Love their burritos!! It's a little off the beaten path but well worth it. Nice outdoor seating and fun after a long work day.

I was driving along during a trip from FL and just seeing what I could find for lunch. This place had a line and many of the customers were there on a break from work. That's a good sign! Ordered the fish taco and the steak taco. It was so much food and it was delicious. Didn't expect the fish... More

Breakfast all... More

I've been coming to this Roberto's for decades and have always been happy with their good sized burritos and perfect taquitos. Recently though, there has been a decline in the quality of the food. Although the prices have gone up, the burritos have gotten smaller, and the other day I swear there was no meat in the taquitos I was... More

We stopped here a few years ago when we were on vacation and had to come back again for the best California Burritos. They were just as good the second time around. There is no indoor seating, but plenty of seats outside to enjoy the California sun while you eat. It's our favorite place for California Burritos.

After moving away from San Diego one thing we miss is great Mexican food. While on a recent trip back, one of our first stops was Robertos - and we were not disappointed. I just love their chips and guacamole!

We've been to Roberto's several times. It's a small place and there is only outside seating...Oh well...Have some really good food and watch the ocean! I like the Shrimp burritos. The employees are friendly, helpful, and professional. The prices are affordable. The food is simply delicious.

We're from San Diego originally, but have lived in Denver now for 23 years. This Robertos is always one of our stops when we are in town for a visit. The rolled tacos with guacamole are THE best. Literally. My mouth waters as I type this!

This is such a cute little local place. It's very quaint and decently priced. The parking can sometimes be tough, but there's usually plenty of street parking. The burritos here are probably the best I've ever had. You order your food & pick it up when it's done a few minutes later. The seating is all outside.
