This is an "order at the counter" kind of place. The guy I have dealt with is usually playing on his phone when he isn't taking an order - and that seems to bother some people. But, he is always helpful and puts his phone away when there is work to be done - so I don't care. The breakfast... More

This is a great real Mexican food place, period. A bit of a dive, but that's part of its appeal. The food, however, is excellent and very authentic. Machaca, chorizo and carne Asada burritos yum yum. A great choice when you're traveling through on i70. Make the stop, you won't regret it.

Hole in the wall joints have the best food as does Jilberitos. Cheap yet delicious, the carne asada taco is the way to go. They leave the heat out of the dishes and have a salsa bar for you to kick up the heat. Families & locals seem to patronize the most. Fancy it is not. Great for grabbing a... More

Stopped in here based on Yelp reviews. We are on a road trip and don't want burgers again tonight. This is your basic walk up and order and take it to your table. Some other reviewer remarked that this was not good food or authentic. Well it is authentic and it was very good. The wife ordered fish taco plate... More

This food is more authentic that fare I have had in Mexico. Do not expect a fine dining experience but rather great Mexican food. The menu is incredibly large and the service is fairly fast. The place was packed at lunch time, mainly with locals. If i was passing through again i would eat here again.

They probably have one of my favorite breakfast burritos. I probably come here at least once a week. I like the lunch items and pretty much everything I've tried there. The staff is always nice too.

This is roadside Mexican fast food at its best. Food is served on plastic plates and plastic utensils are available. Not exactly environmentally friendly, but less clean up for them I suppose. The most important thing for a restaurant though, in my opinion, is the food, and Jilbertitos delivered. I ordered the carnitas plate, which comes with carnitas, rice, refried... More
