Been coming here for ten years... Definately a popular place amongst us locals. People from surrounding counties come to Tappahannock just to go to Los Ports. Service is very fast and top knotch, prices are great and the food is AWESOME. I sometimes eat there several times a week and never get tired of it.

On our way to Williamsburg, six women decided to stop at this restaurant because the parking lot was full. It was a wonderful decision. Friendly and speedy service, excellent food, and trustworthy staff. The chips and salsa were addictive. When we were ready to leave, our waitress gave us just one check and told us to tell the cashier what... More

Have the pleasure of knowing this restaurant inside out, having visited well over a hundred times. Great menu including many standard lunch specials, friendly waiters and hands on owners, speedy service, convenient location, enough room for meetings and business, and tasty traditional food with ability to modify dishes on request!

Los Portales is a local favorite that is currently undergoing creative & wonderful internal and external changes. They have totally updated the menu with numerous traditional items. I am THRILLED beyond words with the TORTILLA SOUP. It is a complete savory meal in one dish - authentic and full of flavors and textures. The wait staff is always friendly and... More

All of my co-workers have been raving about this Mexican restaurant in town. So I was excited to have something different for a change. I went on a Sunday afternoon. It wasn't too busy so my food was ready within 10mins!!! I ordered a Taco Salad.....it was mostly beans and the shell was overcooked a little too dark. I have... More

I stopped in based on the reviews I saw on trip advisor. Solid typical Mexican food. Nothing fancy, but fast & as advertised. The service was excellent. On the recommendation of another guest, I tried a fresh made margarita. This place prides itself on not using a mix. It was really good.
