I just ate their for lunch in late January. Their is always a full lunch crowd, but worth the wait. The service is excellent, and the food comes to your table really fast.

Went with our kids/grands. As usual, was a line waiting to get in. Keep returning for our Herbert's fix when we visit San Marcos! I like the combo plates, wife likes the Chkn quesadillas. Great salsa/chips.

I've never been to Herberts when there wasn't a long waiting line...the food is amazing and served quickly. It's nothing fancy...it's actually a hut!!! The prices are insanely cheap and the plates are huge. Pack your patience...but wait in line and you won't regret it.
