While the new location doesn't have the the charming patio and fountain room, it is a tribute to the original. The Robert's Tacos and the salsa taste just as delicious as they ever have. I have had the same waitress for literally my whole life....More

To start, Carol our server was fantastic, courteous and "Johnny on the spot". Food was delicious, chimichanga and chilli Verde were very good. Chips and salsa were brought to the table quickly, almost as soon as we were seated.

To start with, the chips were wonderfully light and thin, just the way I like them. The red salsa was very good as well. We were there for lunch and each ordered soup and taco salad. The abondigas soup was very salty and tasteless, but...More

The food was terrible and the place was filthy. We were there mid-afternoon and the place was empty. The waitresses were sitting in a booth across the room shooting the breeze. If you have time to lean(or sit), you have time to clean. Sadly, this...More
