Fast, Fresh Mexican Food in Temecula


Los Jilberto’s taquitos

There’s something about driving through Temecula that makes me crave Mexican food.  A frequent stop is Los Jilberto’s a little slice of Mexican Heaven tucked away in a Shopping Center off of Highway 79 and Pechanga Pkway.

It’s a cozy place that’s much more than a top taco shop.    Their pictured menu is quite large and illustrates the mouth watering selections from which you’re able to select.  They have everything from pastor tacos and carne asada burritos to fish tacos and even menudo.

A friendly cashier greets you to take your order and you can peek over the counter to see your order being prepared.  One of the best features is the fresh salsa bar feature homemade salsas in a variety of heat levels.  They also have the fresh onions, cilantro pico de gallo and fresh pickled carrots and jalapenos. The food portions are large, and the quality always above average.

There’s plenty of seating and usually a television on to break the monotony- although it may be tuned to a Spanish station (Hey, it actually enhances the experience).  Makes the atmosphere a little more authentic I think.

If you’re in a hurry, you may be a little disappointed because everything is made fresh so it takes a bit of time.

Los Jilberto’s, 30571 Temecula Pkwy Ste B, Temecula, CA 92592
