We've been to Roberto's several times. It's a small place and there is only outside seating...Oh well...Have some really good food and watch the ocean! I like the Shrimp burritos. The employees are friendly, helpful, and professional. The prices are affordable. The food is simply delicious.

We're from San Diego originally, but have lived in Denver now for 23 years. This Robertos is always one of our stops when we are in town for a visit. The rolled tacos with guacamole are THE best. Literally. My mouth waters as I type this!

This is such a cute little local place. It's very quaint and decently priced. The parking can sometimes be tough, but there's usually plenty of street parking. The burritos here are probably the best I've ever had. You order your food & pick it up when it's done a few minutes later. The seating is all outside.

I had a shredded chicken burrito. Simple but tasty. The place looked very popular and local so it must be good.

I would give Roberto's 5 stars, but they don't serve beer and there is no indoor seating. The California burrito is the best I've had in San Diego and their salsa is quite good as well. They have a good, but not great, view of the coast with a lagoon in the foreground. We ordered food for a family of... More

Great variety of Mexican food, thoughtfully prepared and served...AND you get a gorgeous view of the lagoon (maybe the ocean, if you're lucky). Can't beat the tastes of everything!! Enjoy!!!

I love this place. It is not fancy and there are outside tables where you can look at the lagoon of Torrey Pines State Beach while you wait for take out or eat. The inside is just enough space to order. My favorite is rolled tacos with guacamole but they have a wide range of food. It is always served... More

Hubby and I have started a weekly ritual of going for a walk/hike around Torrey Pines and we have been stopping here for "fuel" before we start. Some stuff is pricier than we have gotten at other good places but overall we really like this place. I do have to say though that I got one of the tortilla bowls... More
