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!

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!

I was driving along during a trip from FL and just seeing what I could find for lunch. This place had a line and many of the customers were there on a break from work. That's a good sign! Ordered the fish taco and the...More
