Roberto's Taco Shop
The Robledo family opened the first Roberto's in San Ysidro in 1964, and whether or not it was the first real "Mexican taco shop" as the chain claims, we're not sure. But, we do know that the majority of burrito aficionados who sing Roberto's praises appreciate the convenient locations, and consistently quality product. Plus, those views overlooking the estuary/ocean at the Torrey Pines joint are perfectly paired with a California burrito that comes with carne asada, french fries, salsa Mexicana, and cheddar.
How to order: Seating is on a first-come basis.
