Good food, ordinary looks

I've been here a few times over the years, and it is always on the list of possibilities when we wonder where to go. It's not much to look at, but the food has always been good, and they have a good selection of beers. The other night I had a very nice bean soup (which was better than other,... read more

We really enjoy Tortuga's for both eat in and take out. If we have ever had any problems (rare), it is fixed quickly (eat in) or a credit is offered (takeout). Food is plentiful, fresh and served hot...lot of choices for every taste. Chips on table with a terrific salsa. Nice margaritas, cold beer. Our favs are fajitas and enchiladas.... More

Great service with authentic Mexican cuisine. Destroys any chain and they have great lunch/dinner combination specials. Though to find for some but never a long wait.

.... but we don't love it. The menu appears to be pretty authentic Mexican food ( though I am admittedly not one to declare that). We have eaten there several times, and always enjoy our food. The chicken they use is delicious and moist and I am a huge fan of their refried beans. The atmosphere is casual, the restaurant... More

One of my favorite joints within a half hour radius. Value: great pricing for food that ranged from better than average to really good. Date night? With a couple margaritas or beers, appetizer, entrees – probably under $50. Family of 4? Still get out of there for about $70. Food: Not the best that I’ve ever eaten, but really good,... More

I enjoy Tortuga's but the service and food can be spotty. I continue to return because it is the best local choice that I have found. I like the Chile Rellenos and Fajitas. The rice is very bland. Refried beans are standard fare. I tried the guacamole once and found it a little watery. Again, I do continue to return... More

Dinner was good but we had a party of 5 and the wait was insane! Staff were friendly enough but really struggled to get us a suitable table. Overall if we didn't have the wait it would of been a 4/5. Way better than a chain restaurant!

We have been coming here for lunch the past year and have never been disappointed with the food. The menu offers lots of delicious choices, all freshly made. They recently got a liquor license. The food is well-proportioned and reasonably priced. The only disappointment we have had was with irregular hours. They are closed on Mondays, but when we recently... More

I was out with some business associates and we had lunch today at Tortugas. I must say I was impressed with the incredibly fresh made salsa and all the dishes were very plentiful for lunch size platters. I had the Tortuga wrap which was unusually good one of my associates had the Mole which looked very good as well I... More
