We are locals, and visit Gilberts, at least 3 times a month. Their Chicken tostada is outstanding. The service is always good, the Margarita's are average, the atmosphere is div...

I didn't complain at 6.30 yesterday, because I don't like making a scene in a restaurant. Time to rethink that !!! Everyone's food LOOKED good, and I ordered a tostada. I like...

Awesome margaritas! 1/22/2007

I ordered a beef chimichanga, which turned out to be the perfect size for me, because when I saw my boyfriend's monstrous-looking burrito (don't get me wrong, it was very delicious, but it was humongous!), I started to get a bit nervous. The chimichanga was about half the size, and nice and crisp. Prices were great, and my margarita was quite an eye-opener. I will definitely go back again! This restaurant is cash only, by the way - fyi in case you're used to using plastic like I am. I was also very pleased with the attentive and friendly staff. more

Best Kept Secret in Los Angeles 8/7/2006

I've been coming here for twenty years. I've never had a bad meal-- and it becomes the favorite of everyone of my friends who comes as well. The funny thing is, almost everyone I know orders the same thing over and over. I like the Super Special Chicken. My girlfriend likes the Valencia Chicken. My buddy loves the Carnitas. No matter what, it's always a feast. But if you're extra hungry try the Sopa de Albondigas as appetizer (Meatball Soup). My mouth's watering now thinking about it all. And it's so friggin inexpensive. My favorite Mexican place-- and I've tried them all. Not gloppy-- super fresh ingredients. I've always thought you can judge a place by it's chips and salsa. These never disappoint (and are served with pickled carrots too). Also: ask for the house hot sauce-- homemade and extra fiery. more

Popular Mexican 8/19/2005

Try this place on a weeknight because it's packed on the weekend. Large restaurant near the airport, very convienent to get in and out of. All the usual staples are good, but leave room for dessert at this place. Generous portions, but not too sweet. They really excel at bringing out subtle flavor without heavy sugar, syrup, etc. Reasonable prices. more

Great Mexican Food in Santa Monica 8/4/2005

Gilbert's is a family run restaurant that is a local favorite. Be prepared to wait (especially on the weekends) for a table however tables turn over quickly. Portions are generous and food is authentic Mexican. As an added bonus don't forget a margarita or two. The casual atmosphere is perfect for families. Once you discover this restaurant you'll return often. more
