Not quite Baja Fresh or Rubios yet - so I guess I have to go to Los Robertos now!
West Coast Taco is gone... so I guess I need to head to Los Robertos now!

Default Amazing!

I found Los Robertos a couple days after I moved to town, being that I live right down the street. I can't get enough of their food! And although it has a little too much cinnamon and nutmeg, I always get the horchata! yummy!

Myself, my girlfriend and her family are all from Southern California (most of them have been here over 5 years). We're going to be heading down to San Antonio to Los Albertos this Saturday, supposedly it's the only real Mexican food place in anywhere near Austin (no offense). Mouth is watering thinking about a Carne Asada Torta. Los Albertos is actually from San Diego (Chula Vista), it's awesome to see him open them up out here. I'm not a big fan of Tex-Mex.

By the way, I saw it referred to as "Baja Style" Baja Style is actually completely different. Baja Style food is like La Salsa, Rubios. It's like Meditteranian of Italian food, more sea food based, tastes different. Los Robertos is just Mexican food.

Was in the area today and decided to try Los Robertos. Definitely reminded me of the SoCal Mexican places...hole in the wall type joints. It wasn't bad. We like the thick tortilla chips and spicy hot salsa..this place has 'em. Tortillas are fresh too. All in all, not bad. It's small and nothing fancy, but the food is solid.
Open 24 hours too.
As some of you know, my wife is from Jalisco...and even she remarked that she liked it. That says a lot to me, as she's quite picky about the Mex (or Tex-Mex) around here.

They have Menudo on Sat-Sun, but no Tamales.

Being originally from CA, I'm actually a big fan of Tex-Mex, but also like Baja style. This place definitely reminds me of the Baja style seen more often in CA. Great burritos, carne asada and fish tacos at reasonable prices. Being 24 hrs is an added bonus when in need of a late-night place.

How is there carne asada different then all the other mexican joints in town that serve it? And I've ate there before and thought it was just another tex-mex place. Nothing special.

They don't have ground beef, only carne asada or shredded beef. There's no carne guisada and they don't use Velveta in their cheese encheladas. The first time I was served that out here I was absolutely horrified. They also have hot carrots, another non-TexMex thing. Other than there there are a lot of similarities. I don't know if he carne asada is an different than Tex Mex.
