We've always eaten at the San Marcos location. This location is much better! Our food was delicious! Service was efficient and attentive.

I've been eating here since it opened and before that the original in San Marcos. It was only very recently that I discovered they make a wonderful hamburger here. It's a hand formed patty on a King's Hawaiian bun. One of the best burgers I've ever had. Be prepared for it to take a little extra time to get to... More

The food was great and if you wanted to sit outside there was a nice area for that. The price of the meal was good and had a big selection of drinks. Would like to go back to New Braunfels just to eat there again.

I am VERY picky about my Mexican food. I was a little thrown off by the name, but decided to give it a shot because every time we pass by it is packed. Always a good sign. I can always judge how it will be by the chips and salsa. My reservations about the place were quickly dismissed. Chips were... More

We went to Herbert's prior to a football game. We chose Herbert's because it is very convenient to New Braunfels High School and the San Marcos location had great reviews. I don't understand why this location doesn't have similarly great reviews because it serves some of the best Mexican food I've had for a while. While we waited for our... More

The Band playing tonight gets 5 stars. Considering the fact that I sat at a table for 45 minutes without being acknowledged, the restaurant has some work to do. I drove for 30 minutes to hear the band and was planning to order off the menu. One of the other people at the table was asked if they wanted water,... More

Herbert's is a must when we travel to New Braunfels or San Marcos. Always friendly and welcoming, they have a large menu and it is ALL good. Love their chips and salsa, breakfast plates, and even their burgers.

We have been eating here for several years now and this week was our best experience. What made it even better this time was the service. Lacie was a great waitress. While service hasn't always been the best at this location, the food is always delicious and consistent. Queso is always yummy. The regular dinner is my fave and its... More

We recently visited New Braunfels and had a great Mexican cuisine in Herbert's. My cousin was new to Tex- Mex food and he totally loved the lip smacking enchiladas.

When it comes to Mexican Food in New Braunfels, Herbert's tops the list. It is our responsibility to continue our family tradition of quality Mexican food and service that our family started over 30 years ago. We are famous for our fajitas, tacos, enchiladas, and authentic homemade tortillas. My Father Herbert Sr. And my Mother Dora, originally started Herbert's Taco Hut in 1976, in San Marcos, Texas, and it has been a landmark ever since. It's my parent's tried and true recipes that have kept our patrons coming back for more than 30 years, and it is those same recipes that will keep them coming back for the next 30 here in New Braunfels.
