Most of the food here was just average. But I tried a shrimp chimi and it was downright weird! It had mixed vegt. in it!! Yes, broccoli and cauliflower!! It totally threw off the taste of the shrimp and the overall chimi. I'm going back to Chimi's across town.

Los Portales offers good food at a reasonable price. The chips and salsa were fresh. The food was good, well seasoned and also fresh. Several in our group also enjoyed the regular margaritas. Our only complaint is that service was slow and inattentive during our meal - we had to flag down someone several times to refill drinks.

The food was average. Although we read many positive reviews, we weren't impressed. We have eaten at many Mexi-American restaurants, this would rank "average" with nothing special to note. The service wasn't exceptional and the food was OK. Don't really care for the bar type experience where alcohol signs shine brightly in the windows and restaurant - yes, I know... More

Always good food and friendly environment, good prices and amazing salsa! I love to sit outside on their beautiful patio in the summer.

So the outside is "interesting" but don't let that scare you off- this place is delicious! Great food at great prices.

We've eaten several lunches and dinners here in the past year and the usual fare was served up well enough, but the hidden gems in this place are the tacos. Lengua (beef tongue), tripa (tripe), pork carnitas, and chitterling tacos are prepared simply yet skillfully. A recent visit included a guest who knows the SoCal taco scene well...he was impressed.... More

I can scratch this one off my list now. Menus needed cleaning. Waiter seemed totally disinterested in everything. Brought wrong drinks, ordered a pitcher he brought 2 smalls margs, took them back and brought a small pitcher, mostly ice, rather than large. We told him and he said he would bring another one. Never did. They weren't too great at... More

I decided to give this place a try, based on the reviews. I went in for lunch on Black Friday. It's a former Casey's gas station, and even the inside still feels pretty much like it did when the gas station was here. I don't care about atmosphere, so no problem there. The menu is large, and the portion sizes... More
