Tied with Sirloin Stockafe as one of the two best restaurants in Murray. Wonderful food and service. Never had a bad meal in over 8 years. Average a least a meal a week there.

I love Los Portales and eat here often with family. The staff here are wonderful, the owners are such nice people. The new building is beautiful, great atmosphere. Anything you order is delicious. I recently ordered the shrimp street tacos - unbelievably good!

Food was great. Reasonable price. They don't sell alcohol there. I think the whole county is dry. Service was OK. Waiter wasn't very attendive. Will go there again.

They have moved to a new location. Trip advisor needs to update their address to 506 Lowes Dr. Near the Lowes Store in Murray. Great food, good portions.
