I reviewed this restaurant 2 years ago, and now it is my local go-to Mexican spot. The service has greatly improved and the food is always consistent and good. I recommend this restaurant. My favorite is the Chile Rellenos. The refried beans are very good as well. My son loves the fajitas and enchiladas.

This amazing eatery is located in a non-descript shopping plaza. Thankfully I work nearby and it came very highly recommended. I have now been enjoying the fabulous food and spectacular service for over ten years. If you are not much into Mexican food, they do have some options for you - including a great cheeseburger and food for your little... More

Tortugas is my favorite restaurant in the Collegeville/Royersford area! The food is always very fresh, friendly staff, and they give you huge portions!

Great local Mexican restaurant located in a shopping center. We usually get take out but you can also dine in. They recently obtained a liquor license so you can have a margarita with your meal. Their fresh salsa is the best! I often order a quart of it to go when I'm making Mexican at home. I wish I had... More

We've been here several times. I believe the food is well worth the wait. I always get the enchiladas and the tamales. My sister loves to come with us, and she always gets the fried ice cream for dessert (although she'd do well to order the flan, too!). The wait staff has always been attentive and pleasant. Prices are where... More

We really enjoy Tortuga's for both eat in and take out. If we have ever had any problems (rare), it is fixed quickly (eat in) or a credit is offered (takeout). Food is plentiful, fresh and served hot...lot of choices for every taste. Chips on table with a terrific salsa. Nice margaritas, cold beer. Our favs are fajitas and enchiladas.... More

Great service with authentic Mexican cuisine. Destroys any chain and they have great lunch/dinner combination specials. Though to find for some but never a long wait.

I've been here a few times over the years, and it is always on the list of possibilities when we wonder where to go. It's not much to look at, but the food has always been good, and they have a good selection of beers. The other night I had a very nice bean soup (which was better than other,... More
