Open 24/7 but mostly busy at night. A great drive-through stop when in a hurry. Informal inside dining too. Young crowd. Love the burritos.

It's either Filiberto's or Juanita's... that's where everyone ends up after a fantastic night out on the town in Encinitas.

It was always a bit too greasy for me ... there are so many other fresher and more delicious Mexican food options in Encinitas.

I don't rmember How many times I've run down to Filiberto's for a quick lunch or dinner take-out meal. Always a special treat. The Carne Assada burrito is easily a meal for two. My favorite of the north county Mexican eateries.

Real mexican food, huge plate, salty, fast service, not a fancy place. Cheap. Much better then Taco Bell. Great menu, lot of choices, if you like real tacos, enchiladas, etc.

Do not eat here unless u have no other option.. It is a late night hang out for all the scummy people of Encinitas & is highly unsanitary!
