The chicken enchiladas were made out of what tasted like canned shredded chicken topped with a tomato sauce with chunks of tomatoes and cheese on top. I normally love mexican and... More

We spent $80 for a lunch, and as I was walking out a waitress was sitting there cussing and complaining about her coworkers. I made a comment to her about being in front of customers and she didn't care. So I spoke with the manager, while walking with the manager, this waitress told me to shut my damn mouth and... More

Love Tortuga, we always end up going here. Food is delicious, and staff is courteous. The only down fall is no green salsa.

Location is good. The food is below average, it seemed to be dry and been under a heat lamp or something. Not enough alcohol in the margaritas, it tasted watered down. Not impressed with our first experience there and probably won't be going back on future trips.
