I love this place. Everything I've tried here has been delicious, and I'm always trying to get new people to come along and try their food. Their salsa is probably my favorite salsa anywhere. It tastes so fresh, and has a great kick. All of their meals are sizable portions. My favorite is the Chipotle Chicken, which comes with all... More

Not the typical large Mexican menu, but good nonetheless. Restaurant is small and feels a bit like a fast food restaurant, but has table service and a liquor license. Informal and inexpensive.

My husband and I have been coming to this restaurant for years now. We were so disappointed when my husband's creamy chipotle chicken tasted like it had been heated or even cooked straight through in the microwave and then thrown on the grille for a few seconds at best! It tasted terrible. When the server came and asked how dinner... More

I am very sorry about your unsatisfactory experience at Tortugas. I want to assure you that are meats are never microwaved. The chicken is grilled. If a customer is not happy with a menu item, we always offer to prepare them something else. However, if they do eat their meal , we do charge for it. I should have come... More

Stopped in on a Wednesday evening while visiting the area. Hubby had a margarita which he pronounced excellent. Reasonable selection of beers also. We each had the pick two combination, which was very reasonably priced. I had the cheese enchilada and a pork enchilada. The pork was succulent and very tasty. The cheese enchilada, well, let's just say I've had... More

Best Margaritas in town--in just about any flavor you prefer. Huge menu of choices; I usually go with the pick three (of any combination) for $12.95; with a choice of tacos, burritos, chimichangas,enchiladas, tamales, tostadas and then You can choose from delicious shredded beef, shredded pork--those are my two favorites--chicken, ground beef, or chorizo. there are also several vegetarian options....

Thank you so much for your review. We are happy that you always enjoy your experience here. You will really like the margaritas on Monday nights, as it is Margarita Mondays and house margaritas are half price! More

The food wasn't bad and the price was good. I've only ever done take out and only have one issue: they did not provide one of my food items that I paid for. I can't say that they did it maliciously and I don't think they did. Its just one of those circumstances. Overall I suggest others try it out.

Great Authentic Mexican cuisine in a comfy casual ambience. You get Value for money with great serving size. You can get some genuine mexican dishes like Tamales (my favorite( and fried ice cream (my daughters favorite). If you look out, they do have Groupon deals also out once in a while.

This place will be out of business shortly. Absolutely awful experience. I want to start by saying that though I do love dining at nice restaurants, I am aware that some of the most authentic food comes from these small hole-in-the-wall establishments. I was excited when a friend asked me to try this place in Collegeville which is conveniently located... More

Stopped for lunch today after driving by there many times on our travels and hearing how they are the "best in Montco County". The first tip off should have been that they did not answer the phone five minutes before opening for the day. Its bad when you can't distinguish a tamale from an enchilada on your plate. The beef...
