We stopped at this restaurant on the way back to Tysons Corner from Newport News. We were just looking for a non-fast-food place to grab dinner and turned in here keeping our fingers crossed. It's very reasonably priced, with a typical but complete Mexican menu. They have a good beer list, including Dos Equis and Negra Modelo (they were out... More

I was so surprised to find this outstanding Mexican restaurant in a small souther town. I'm from southern California and we have Mexican restaurants on every block, it seems. Los Portales was by far one of the best Mexican restaurants I have experienced. My favorite dish (I ate there multiple times during my recent trip) was the spinach enchiladas -... More

If you're really hungry, whether it's lunch or dinner, this is a dependable place. A couple of days before Fourth of July I tried to go there and they were actually gone on vacation. Another lady swung and when I was in the parking lot and she and I were both disappointed that they were not open. Their food is... More

Honest - Fresh - Great Service! The menu is extensive with options for all. I look forward to the day when the add fresh TORTILLA SOUP to the menu. If this ever happens It will be 5 stars! It would be great if they developed an outdoor patio and if they rotated their special menu - same item for the... More

I eat here once every week with friends. Our comment is always: "I have never had anything here that was not good." I look forward to dining there every week. The wait staff is always attentive and, because we frequent this restaurant, they anticipate what we want. My favorites are Chili Colorado, Chili Relleno, and Chili Con questo. The wine... More

I do not live in Tappahannock but when I visit and I do not feel like dressing up or a lengthy dinner experience, I always go to Los Portales. You can eat (and drink) like a king for the price of a pauper. The first few times I got the bill I kept going over it as I was certain... More

We stop at Los Portalsx nearly every time we are in Tappahannock. I'm gluten intolerant and they always graciously change out the flour tortillas for corn. The servers are prompt and efficient. When we first moved to the area we were starved for TexMex but Los Portales has solved that problem for us.

I ate dinner here one evening, as it was convenient to the hotel I was staying in. It's not hard to make decent Mexican food, but this place succeeded in making it gross. The only highlight of the meal was the warm chips before the meal arrived. I got a "combo" meal - and the option is to choose one... More
