OK food — the rice is particularly good. An authentic, good, dependable taco stand. That's about it.

My son and I happened upon Roberto's as we were searching for a taco joint on our way to SD! Man, did we hit the jackpot!!! The chicken/cheese (all meat) burrito is outstanding, as are the quesadillas, etc. Green salsa is amazing and the breakfast burrito (bacon, egg, cheese) is unbelievably good! It has now become a "must stop" for... More

We stopped for a quick dinner after staying at the beach til dark. The place was busy! The service at the order window was quick and friendly, though. The food was good, not great.

Just what I was looking for! It is tough to find a "stock" item on any menu that has no meat and no cheese. The Lite Burrito is it! Very tasty!

Had both the fish taco and the beef. Beef far won out over the Fish. Fish taco was a little spicer but the beef had much better flavor and the shell was fried to crispy. This crispy shell is how I remember SD tacos! Service was qwik, parking is very limited. Good food fast.

Roberto's has never let me down, they have good Mexican food at a very reasonable price. I usually order the California Burrito or rolled tacos. Chips and guacamole are tasty and well priced. It is near our condo so the convenience factor is a definite plus.

Fish taco fell apart and rolled tacos were crunchy but small. Not anything special, so will go back to Rudy's Taco instead.

If you aren't looking for a sit down restaurant but just a quick and tasty grub Robertos is #1 on my list for Mexican food. Don't let the plastic plates throw you off, Robertos is a San Diego staple for many years. Try it, you'll like it.
