Two stars is really generous for this place, but rice and frijoles were good. Every table was filthy, there were flies everywhere, and the meat in the burrito was not fresh, neither the chicken nor the beef. We both got stomachache within half an hour. There plenty of other places in town to eat, and some of them have amazingly... More

First stop back since Nov 2016. Same order as last several stops. Beans/rice/cheese burrito and cheese quesadilla. Fast and friendly service, very flavorful. No need for salt, as beans are seasoned to perfection. Carnitas are also great here - next time!

We always go to Los Jilbertos for authentic Mexican food and a casual, authentic experience. Plenty of tables, inside and outside, an extensive menu, and ice cream. Our friends from Bellevue, WA insisted on returning there for ice cream!

There is no easier way to make my teenage son happier than to find a place with breakfast burritos. Open very early this is a great place before hiking. Huge burritos. Yummy. Tip - cash only.

Jilberto's Taco Shop on Palm Canyon Drive has great chicken tacos (a la carte) for about $6.00. This place has indoor and front patio dining. This restaurant appears to be popular with locals. I strongly recommend this place for casual dining with authentic Mexican food. The staff is nice and friendly. There is parking in front of the restaurant.

The Los Jiobertos restaurant is near the circle in Borrego Springs, CA. We took a day trip from the Palm Springs area to see the wildflowers that are currently in bloom all over the surrounding area because of the consistent rainfall the area has gotten over the past season. We went on a Wednesday and there were tourists everywhere enjoying... More

The food was excellent! Reasonably priced and quick service even though it was very busy due to the desert flowers. We ate outside and it was so nice!!

The perfect breakfast burrito! Eggs, chorizo and cheese in a tender, fresh flour tortilla, at a very reasonable price - what more could you ask for?
