First visit to Gilberto's. After reading some of the reviews, I was a bit apprehensive. We found very good service, and our meal was delicious, We will gladly return to Gilberto's!!

Hadn't been to Gilbert's in years so we gave it a shot. The service was fine and the food was fine, but nothing exceptional. Several better options if looking for Mexican in Roseburg.

Worst Mexican food in roseburg! Horrible service! Dirty restaurant. Food tastes rancid. Man employee is very rude. I would never eat here again.

We went several months ago for lunch, only one other couple were in the place - service and food were poor, restaurant smelled like bathrooms & cleaning detergent. Ugh. Never returned. Maybe they've turned it around by now.

I haven't been there lately, I consider this the worst Mexican food I've ever eaten. Most dishes come covered with some canned looking sauce that turns everything into an unappetizing mess. Unaceptable.

I love Mexican foods. California, TexMex and authentic. I am not real sure what style Gilbertos serves but it wasn't what I have ever had before. Don't get me wrong as I ate my Pork Fajita Dinner. I had never been served a plate with the beans and rice scooped with an ice cream scoop. Yes-round piles of beans and... More

One plus it that it was open late when I was finished with work for the day. The wait staff was friendly, and the food was as good as any other Mexican restaurant I have been to. I wouldn't say it was anything exceptional, but it was still very good.

They served the BEST pork taquitos we've ever had! My husband and I asked to split the dinner, and our waitress graciously brought that dinner to us on two plates. The six taquitos were large and FULL of shredded pork--YUMMY!

Consistently top-notch friendly service, and there's a reason the food's so good -- "family secret" recipes! I asked Gilberto Jr. recently about the brown sauce, like a very light gravy, served atop their chile relleno and other entrées. I can't tell you the "secret recipe" part, because I promised I wouldn't, but it is a Gilberto Sr. secret recipe. It... More

First the good. The service was pretty good, very attentive. Our orders were correct. The fresh flour tortillas were good. Now, for the rest. The food was very average. The plates came with very small scoops of rice and beans that were lacking in flavor. The Wally burrito, although large, tasted, as my wife put it, "...like canned corned beef... More
