While on vacation, my husband wanted to go to Oretega'z for his birthday. We went there last year and the meal was just wonderful. This time, not so much. Three of us got enchiladas and they were good, but when we left, we all said that we were not feeling so good. The other member of our party got a... More

My friend took me here and promised me an exquisite mean. Ortega'z did not disappoint. The food was first rate. Could not stop saying "mmmmm". Service just right and the owner was ever present making sure everything was working optimally. What a find. Will be back soon.

Too complex to just be called "Mexican", but we did the 'survey of apps" once with Ruby Red Margaritas, and returned 3 days later for dinner. So many great choices, not one a disappointment

Nice little southwestern cuisine restaurant in Manteo. Food was fresh and had a creative flair to it. Seasoned well, and chips and salsa were very good and homemade! The service was great and very friendly servers. Tom was the bomb. I had the fresh ahi tacos and they were very good. Would go back again.

Ortega'z Grill is owned by Lisa & Marcelo, who care about FOOD, and wants you to have the best possible meal & SUPER GOOD Marguritas! Roasted Pablano She Crab Bisque is to die for RICH, so get the BOWL! Fish Tacos or Pulled Pork Wrap make it hard to decide which, so each of you order both & then share... More

Both my husband and myself had the fish tacos, excellent. What made it a great experience was that I asked if the fish tacos could be made gluten-free, and the waiter not only had the fish tacos prepared GF, but the rice and beans as well. He said the beans were made by cooking in beer, so instead of beans... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into Ortega'z! The service was outstanding and the food was even better! The spinach chorizo pasta and macaroni and cheese were out of this world! We didn't know that Guy Fieri was there until our server told us- which was pretty cool! I totally understand why! I really liked how the owner and... More

We visited Ortegas and we're told that our wait would be 20 mins. 45 minutes later, we still had not been seated. With a party of 8 , I understand that it sometimes takes longer than expected. However, they had several empty tables and parties that arrived after us were being seated before us. We were told that a party... More

This place is putting out phenomenal fish tacos and crab mac n cheese. Customer service is spot on, and smiling making me feel like their number one priority. Next year I will come back to have the same fish tacos and crab mac n cheese. Tom was our waiter, and he is fantastic.
