Best enchiladas ever! The enchilada sauce is the secret but don't ask because they are keeping this a guarded secret. Very good hot sauce and fresh chips. The beans were fair and the rice was also good. Prices are a little higher than average but...More

Went with our kids/grands. As usual, was a line waiting to get in. Keep returning for our Herbert's fix when we visit San Marcos! I like the combo plates, wife likes the Chkn quesadillas. Great salsa/chips.

I've never been to Herberts when there wasn't a long waiting line...the food is amazing and served quickly. It's nothing fancy...it's actually a hut!!! The prices are insanely cheap and the plates are huge. Pack your patience...but wait in line and you won't regret it.

Ieat here with friends and family 3 to 4 times or more a month. Original Mexican food. Super tacos. Very fast service. Worth the wait. And they are famous for their hot sauce.

I eat here frequently and yet I am still surprised by how fast my food comes out (maybe it's just because of what I order... I get the same thing every time). I get the cheese enchilada dinner and it is delicious. I am less...More

Called at Herberts after a busy afternoon of retail therapy at the nearby outlet malls in San Marcos. Only looks small from the outside but there are a lot of tables inside and most of them were full ( this was at about 5pm). Fortunately,...More
