INCREDIBLE BAJA STYLE MEXICAN FOOD IN MEMPHIS!!Instantly recognizing the Filiberto's taco logo from my time spent around the Phoenix area, I decided to pop in for lunch on a whim. I didn't really know what to expect or how it would compare to the other **berto's restaurants that dominate the San Diego burrito scene. So what did I think? OMG, this is my new favorite Mexican restaurant in this city--and I've already dropped a couple of 5-star reviews on other places. Filiberto's, however, takes the cake BY FAR!!Let me break it down in layman's terms for the casual eater looking for a great food experience:(1) Absolutely the BEST CARNE ASADA BURRITOS in town! For those that are not familiar with Cali-style burritos, a carne asada burrito has no rice, beans, lettuce, cheese, or sour cream. Rather, it is loaded with about 1 1/2 pounds of marinated steak (diced), pico de gallo, and guacamole...and it is meant to be picked up and eaten with your hands, so there is no sauce on top. Again, this is not Tex-Mex, Michoacan, Guadalajaran, or Veracruz-style Mexican food. This is serious Baja-Mex, and it is THE BOMB! One bite into my delectable baby-sized burrito, and I was instantly flashing back to the West Coast. Yes, it was that good.(2) CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!! My burrito was less than 6 bucks. Yes, a 2 pound burrito for under $6. Unreal. That is more than $3 CHEAPER than Elena's Taco Shop on the corner of Summer and Raleigh LaGrange (which is also very good, by the way). My chicken taco (also incredible) was under $2. And when I finished my meal of pure awesomeness, I was given a flyer with additional Filiberto's coupons, one of which advertises a pollo asado burrito for 3 bucks (limit 3)! Yes..totally legit $3 burritos that weigh about 2 pounds. I am definitely coming back...SOON.(3) OPEN 24 HOURS. Wut-wut? You read that correctly. Get your Mexi munchies on anytime, 7 days a week.(4) DRIVE-THRU. Say no more.(5) FREE, SELF-SERVE CHIPS. Yep, that's right. Take as many hot, freshly salted tortilla chips to accompany your rockin' taco, burrito, or rolled tacos.(6) SALSA BAR. At least 4 different delicious salsas to dabble with. The green tomatillo salsa is off the chain. Oh, and don't forget to grab a cup full of hot carrots while you're at it.(7) PRO-MILITARY. Yeah, I know some people won't care about this, but if you show your military ID, you get an ADDITIONAL 15% OFF your already cheap, delicious order. Can't beat that.For all the aforementioned reasons, Filiberto's is a restaurant that you MUST HAVE in your regular rotation. Memphis people, I can't implore you enough to PUH-LEASE patronize this place and keep its doors open. It's only been there since late July, but give Filiberto's a try...I promise you will love it!!
If you are looking for a Hispanic restaurant with great food, friendly service, in a family environment, then this is your place. The food is amazing. It is easy to tell that everything is made from scratch (even the rice and beans!) and is made from quality ingredients. That is just something you don't get at the typical Mexican restaurant where things come pre-packaged, frozen, dry, and under-seasoned. Pus, the food was very reasonably priced! I can say for sure that I will be going back really soon!
THERE'RE ALWAYS CONSTANT WITH MY ALPALMER DRINK, TACO BOWL & A BOWL OF RICE ON THE SIDE! AND IT'S SWEET WHEN THE EMPLOYEES REMEMBER US WHEN MRS. EMILY & I DINE THERE BECAUSE THEY ALREADY KNOW WHAT WE WANT TO DRINK & HOW WE LIKE IT MADE! (ALPALMERS DRINKS-- LEMONADE WITH UNSWEETENED TEA & THE OTHER WITH SWEET TEA) THEY'RE ON POINT WITH GREAT SERVICE AND WONDERFUL COURTESY!
This Place is beautiful and has an enjoyable atmosphere. Its for any and everybody who loves Mexican Style Food Plus A Good Time. Trust Me whether you are with yourself, a friend, or family you will love it because the food is so delicious and the staff are very friendly and kind. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I went during lunch time and they were busy, so thats always good. My waiter was nice and attentive. Even though they were busy my food came at an appropriate time and nice and warm. Great lunch specials and great tasting food! Close to UTHSC.
Their Texas margarita is great! But, the chilaquiles plate is not authentic. I was very disappointed because I had been craving that dish for a while. Go to Summer Ave For real Mexican food.
Very clean, polite waitresses, food was wonderful and prices were very reasonable. My girls took me there for Mother's Day and we totally enjoyed it.
Ballin tacos, fresh chips, fly salsa. I eat here all the time and am never disappointed. Seriously, try the tacos.
Fun lunch spot with good food and drinks! Quick service and friendly staff. Kid friendly and easy parking.
This is my very favorite place to eat in Memphis! Panchos is totally delicious, and the atmosphere is great.
