Had a great time; festive environment; good service and awesome food. Parking was a bit if an issue but after a few minutes we were able to park. The second floor bar really makes it convenient for people who don't want to wait on a table.

One of the best meals my wife and I had during our USA trip. A thriving restaurant with really excellent Mexican food. We ate outside watching humming birds - what could be better!

If this place is too busy, they provide a great take-out option. We ordered a pretty complex 6 dishes. They were all perfect and delicious. Chili relleno were fantastic. Portions were large and flavorful.

Roberto's has good food, very large portions and at a reasonable price. They're always busy so go early or late to get a table without waiting. We were there for lunch and several times for dinner and always got good service.

We were on a two week trip and I would return here. Staff was efficient and very friendly. Food was good and a pleasant variation of the standard Mexican Restaurants. I was very pleased with our choice that night.

The place was very busy (around 6:30pm), but we found an open seat to the side of the bar upstairs. Food portions are very large and we saw most people walking out with to-go boxes. The food was average and the service okay. On the pricey side for Mexican of this standard, but we'll probably go back if really hungry... More

Really enjoyed our dinner. Had a short wait on a Sunday night but the food was worth the wait. This is a rather small place but the staff is very friendly and food service was fast. Really liked all we had.

Roberto's is a very popular dining spot for locals and tourists. The menu is varied and the bar takes up the entire second floor. We went at 7:00 p.m. on a week night and had to wait forty minutes to be seated. We ordered two standard orders: Pork Carnitas and Beef Fajitas. Both came with rice, beans, guacamole, and tortillas.... More

This place had great service..despite the crabby old guy sitting behind me who complained about his reservation. The food was not as good as I remembered but I did order something out of the ordinary for myself. I think if I had stuck with my go to Mexican items I would of given this a better review.
