Roberto and Dolores Robledo's tortilla factory was doing so well that they opened a restaurant called Roberto's in 1964. Roberto's taco shops are now probably the most prominent and imitated Mexican fast food chain in town. Click here to read a short write up from 2000 about the many imitators and variations on the name of this taco shop.

Oh man, this one makes me miss my hometown. I alway make it a point to visit one of the 'berto's when I'm back in town for a visit.

Their tacos must be good if they've been around since '64. A great looking building, so colorful and perfect for a business to catch your eye. Is the inside as colorful, or is it more subdued?

I always enjoy my visits here, but I never have time to get to as many blogs as I like. Lately it just seems as if it's getting harder and harder to visit other daily photoblogs and all I have time for (barely) is getting my own pictures posted. Don't tell anyone I was here on company time:)

I was just telling my texas friends about this taco shop. I grew up going there regularly, along with my Grandpa Al's taco shop across from San Diego College. I miss home so much, thanks for this blog, now I can visit anytime I want=)
