Nice change of pace from our usual stops in South Tucson.

Not crowded, but not empty. Clean. Prompt Service and very good food. I had the bruschetta mixto and it was very tasty. My husband had the chili relleno, said it was good. (not much of a food guy, I'm afraid) Their salsa is excellent. Chips were warm and good. Thank Goodness the guacamole had... read more

Seasoned waitress spilled margaritas and soda on my 3 month old! Poor kid had tequila and dr. Pepper soaked in his clothing and stroller.. The waitress just says, I'm sorry, then continued with the orders.. Like everything was good. What was left for them was well deserved..

We went for my birthday brunch at around 11:00 am on a Sunday morning. Mariachis were playing when we walked in. There was only about a 5-6 minute wait for us to get a booth seating four people. The buffet had a cook making omlets to order with plenty of spicy and traditional ingredients. There was a shredded beef soul... More

We found this charming restaurant recently and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Usually lunch buffets are not my favorite, but after seeing this one we tried it and were pleasantly surprised. I saw several different customers take a look at the buffet and then order it. The food is traditional Sonoran style Mexican food: tamales, enchiladas (red and green) mini chimichangas,... More

This review is based on their breakfast buffet - a pleasant surprise when we visited yesterday. While we did peruse the full menu, chock full of delicious menu items we decided to go with the breakfast buffet they had in a separate room. I am not sure if they do this every day or just weekends but either way it... More

Whenever we visit Tucson, we're always sure to go to Los Portales for a meal, and they never disappoint. We got there late on a Sunday evening, and the food was hot, fresh, and delicious. Their carne asada is wonderful, and their salsa is amazing!

I've been to Los Portales several times but this one was different. My husband and I went to have lunch on Sunday after church... I ordered a tortilla soup and it was DELICIOUS! then I had 2 tacos and they were not great at all. I don't want to give them a bad score, but don't try tacos dorados... everything... More

A delicious Sunday Buffet with all the typical foods, menudo, chorizo con huevo. It's the real stuff oh and I can't forget the mariachi trio that plays great favorites while you enjoy great food. Worth the drive!
