Wonderful Mexican style Brunch Buffet

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... read 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!

We stopped here for lunch because we were getting our tire fixed across the street at Discount Tire. We were very pleasantly surprised as we had not ventured out much in Tucson for food. The menu offers the typical mexican fare but they also have different buffets (breakfast and lunch). We all went for the buffet in order to get... More

Camarones Fantasia is outstanding. This dish alone has brought us back multiple times. But, let's get serious ... The facility itself has seen better days. The food and the service are a quite 'variable'; with the exception of the Camarones Fantasia, we've had the same item on different nights and had very good to below average reactions to the item....

First time at this restaurant. Complimentary chips and salsa were fine. The guacamole was the best I ever tasted. The main dishes were only average. The Carne Asada the two companions had was rather bland. The pork I had was fatty and hunks of gristle in it. The service started out ok, but the waitress became rather flipped with us... More
