Great tacos and beans after surfing all day. This restaurant has outside shaded seating. Nothing fancy here but good real Mexican food. Styrofoam plates and cups. We have also had burritos and enchiladas. Been coming here for years.

Food was hit and miss. The breakfast burrito was good. The combo with rice and beans was OK but bland. Prefer the food at Rudy's on Stevens Ave in Solana Beach where you help yourself to a variety of sauces. Things to note: Seating is...More

A friend recommended, though when I got there, it was not what I had hoped. Robertos has a decent menu, and I was pleased with my carne Asada taco, the chiles rellenos were tasty, but at the end, it was not something to drive to,...More

Roberto's are now individually owned and are not all the same. Del Mar is still on the top of our list. The hot sauces are good and the food even better. For such a small place we always find seating and parking...a double plus!

I decided to give Roberto's Very Mexican Food a try for dinner. The place is very small and the tables are all outside. The place is on Carmel Valley Road, not far from the ocean. I ordered the #5, which included a beef hard shell...More

We enjoyed our lunch here after hiking Torrey Pines State Reserve. Our family loved the tacos, burritos and taquitos. The guacamole was awesome and an order of chips and guac was enough to share. We enjoyed our lunch here even more than Miguel's this trip!
