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.

My husband and I have made Los Portales a regular restaurant when we visit our friend that lives only minutes away. What a great value. The food isn't the best I have ever had, but it is definitely the best value. I have paid more for food that wasn't half as good. Their queso is really good. I really like... More

The hardworking staff at Los Portales make sure your food arrives fast and piping hot. The kitchen does their best to make it delicious. We always bring home leftovers, which are just as good the next day! Try the carnitas and the shrimp quesadilla. Nothing wrong with their margaritas, either!

This was the first time we stopped here. It was fairly crowded, so that's usually a good sign. Girlfriend had the Vegetarian Fajitas and I opted for the Shrimp Chimichangas. Both were very good. Of course the complimentary chips and also as well. Both meals and the tab came in under $20. Service was very good as well.
