Albertas ... my very favorite hole-in-the-wall, greasy spoon, local Mexican place. Yes, you can find better ambiance. This place has no character - it's kind of a dump inside. And, as another reviewer mentioned, the drive through is ridiculously slow compared to other fast food places. If you have a special order or more than 2 items, there might be... More

Usually the reason a restaurant has a drive-thru is to help accelerate and speed up service. The car in front of me was there for at least 5 minutes. And only got one little bag. Fortunately mine didn't take as long and I know the food's okay so at least it will fill me up

Alberta's takes me back to my college days in San Diego when I craved tasty, fast Mexican food after a late night party. Can't beat the carne asada burrito with extra salsa. Get it spicy!

This place is hit & miss for lunch, but for breakfast, their burritos are GREAT & a good value. However, their service is a bit slow. If in a hurry, I'll phone in my order to get a jump on things. The best burrito thus far is the Macha & Egg burrito (they prepare it with potatoes, but you can... More

I was just driving by and noticed this place. It occurred to me that although I've lived in the community for a number of years, I had never given it a try. It was lunchtime, but I was not really hungry, so decided that I would get something "simple" from the posted menu. I chose a chicken enchilada (no salad... More

this place used to be great, maybe since I was inebriated when I used to come here, but coming here sober, this place has taken a dive.

Everything on my plate came out of a can, including the chile rellenos. I am Hispanic and grew up in New Mexico so I know a little something about Mexican food, and this wasn't it. Quite possibly the worst I ever had. I paid $11 for a chile rellenos plate and all I could eat was the canned refried beans... More

Hole in the wall with delicious, home cooked mexican food. Portions are very big, especially the burritos. We go there often for lunch.
