This was a late Monday night. We had gone to another cafe and didn't like the food. My host stopped at Roberto's on the way home and we ordered fish tacos and a carnitas burrito to take out. The fish tacos were so-so but the carnitas burrito was a mess. Really good carnitas are fried so they get a crust.... More

Each meal is made and not under a heat lamp. Great tacos and refried beans. Right off the ocean so you can head to the beach afterwards

I really like Roberto's for their breakfast burritos and have been to this location several times specifically for that item. In terms of fast food Mexican food this is one of the better quality ones in the area in my opinion.

This is definitely worth stopping by and grabbing some delicious authentic Mexican food around! Cruise down the coast highway and visit the beach and make this your food stop. Seating available inside and out. Great homemade real Mexican hot sauces to try! Breakfast is also available on the menu!

We LOVE this Roberto's and eat there often, but today our take out order was sub-standard. My husband and brother-in-law had burritos and pinto beans that were good, but the beef taco and especially the bean tostada I ordered tasted really bad.....like they had been cooked in rancid grease. They were really busy, but that is little comfort. I am... More

Love the carne asada burritos. Nothing but meat, salsa and guacamole. No fillers. Fantastic. Although, the California burritos are also favorites. Get the food to carry out and take it to the beach!

This is a small place with some amazing food. It has a tiny counter to eat at or you can eat outside. Lots of people come in here to pick up carry out. I ordered one fish taco and 2 chicken tacos. The fist is fried with the usual fist stuff on it. It was good and in a soft... More

While my wife and myself were on vacation we happened to be driving along the highway where this restaurant is located. We were looking for a place for lunch and happened to spot Roberto's. It didn't look like much but we were in the mood for some Mexican food. We are from Canada and use to mediocre Mexican restaurants. We... More
