First time was pretty good. Second time the chicken was loaded with grizzle. Told the guy behind the counter, but he didn't care. Lesson learned.

Saw this restaurant on tripadvisor and wanted to give it a try. Pretty basic place. No need for much decoration. They serve great food, and thats what its all about. We really enjoyed the tamales. They have some seating inside, but it seems more like a takeout place.

One of the best Carne asada burrito I've ever had! The tacos are great too. The chips and guacamole are so good. Service is always friendly.

We stopped at Algoberto's upon arrival in Yucca Valley. My son had arranged for the family restaurant to cater his wedding and we were there to write a check for the deposit.

Their carne asada burrito with a side of carrots cooked in chili peppers is my favorite Mexican dish in the USA. I've never tried anything else here, and I like lots of other Mexican restaurants. It's my #1 stop in Yucca Valley, but just be aware, it's not a pretty strip mall.

We've been here twice & I can say the fish tacos were good, the chile rellenos excellent, and the tortas huge. What I really like are the 4 different types of salsa from red to green to chipotle, mix and match--you can flavor your meal anyway you want. Tthe only bummer was when I used the restroom that particular day,... More
