This place has been around forever! I used to go there at night after parties. Food is plentiful, the price is cheap and the quality of food is terrific! Even after 30 years, it's still just as good.

We have quite a few Mexican places to choose from but we always enjoy the satisfying flavors of Herbert's. It's a nice informal place to get great food in a timely manner.

Fun, kitschy place with good food at a good price. Server knew the menu well and was able to guide our order. Good prices. Near the river.
