I've never been to Herberts when there wasn't a long waiting line...the food is amazing and served quickly. It's nothing fancy...it's actually a hut!!! The prices are insanely cheap and the plates are huge. Pack your patience...but wait in line and you won't regret it.

Ieat here with friends and family 3 to 4 times or more a month. Original Mexican food. Super tacos. Very fast service. Worth the wait. And they are famous for their hot sauce.
