This place is awesome. Grabbed a lobster burrito and a California Burrito and they were both amazing. Small place inside, but that is alright since the food is great. Good prices and great service.

I really like this place and their service is top notch. It's not your typical Roberto's and the food will let you know that once you have a bite.

This place is definitely worth the wait! The food is good and at great price. It is had to get a table there so may want to do take out.

I love the potato rolled tacos...sounds weird but they're awesome! Yes, you do usually have to wait in line but there is a reason it's always crowded...the food is so worth it. Great value too!

i don't know what the girl before me is talking about. the food here is GREAT! and the prices are good too. the food was authentic too. and if you decide to come here, you HAVE to try the lobster burritos.

We found the El Zarape Mexican Restaurant to be good - not great. The ambiance was nice enough, it was just too crowded and took forever to get our food. The food was good, but not worth the wait time we had.

So, my boyfriend and I decided to check this place out last night. Very cramped lil shop. I'm all for cozy, but this was BAD. The semi-exposed small kitchen housed 4-5 sad lookin cooks, who in turn served some sad looking/tasting food. We ordered Fish tacos....which tasted like last months tilapia, and smelled even worse, Nachos Supreme...which consisted of nacho cheese from the can, and thigh pieces that, I swear, had been sitting under a heat lamp for several hours (apparently its possible to get dry thigh pieces..), and lastly the infamous house burrito..all I can say for that is DON'T DO IT. We waited about 20 minutes for our food. The food was served at room temperature...Room temperature nacho cheese from a can not so delicious...room temp fish tacos...not so delicious... They even managed to mess up the horchata, it came unmixed and settled into an inch thick powdery film at the bottom of a medium sized cup. Everything was disgusting. I wouldn't recommend this to my enemies, because less than an 30 min after we left I had the WORST stomach cramps, and spent the night over the toilet. It was the worst $25 we ever spent. I'm not one to nag. I'm a cook myself a a restaurant in Huntington Beach. But holy guacamole....I still feel sick this morning, and felt it my place to warn you all.

Pros: You don't have to walk far to eat somewhere else

Cons: Spoiled food served at room temperature.

We went here while on a weekend vacation to San Diego. The food was excellent. The salsa bar also was great. Parking is limited to on the street. We parked in a residential area about a block away. The atmosphere is very casual. You order at the counter and your food comes on Styrofoam plates with plastic utensils. Seating is also limited and was almost all full when we got there, plus a bunch of people coming to get take-out orders. Prices are cheap, portions are plenty (not too big, not too small). Overall, the food was excellent, the atmosphere was fine ? as long as you?re not expecting a nice sit-down restaurant.
