We were trying to find something open late since we arrived at our hotel after 9:00. This place had great food and let us have our service dog on the patio area. I ordered a combination plate with enchilada's, tacos, tamale, rice and refried beans. It was wonderful! I have had better chips but Salsa was good. My husband got... More

We went to Tortuga because it was within walking distance of our hotel. Boy were we the lucky ones! As soon as we sat down a lady with a guacamole cart came by. My husband and teenagers love homemade guacamole, and Tortuga did not disappoint. Chips and salsa were satisfying. Portions were big. Food was tasty. Wish they were closer... More

Food and service were great. I live in an area that is flooded with Tex Mex restaurants so to me they are all kinda the same. No complaints about this one. If you looking for your run of the mill Tex Mex dishes then this place is for you.

I went to dinner at this Mexican restaurant with the goal of mucho margaritas and chips with salsa (these are a few of my favorite things).

We have been here several times. The food has always been good and seemed reasonably priced. They always had room for our group.

Excellent Mexican restaurant on the sea front. It’s quite a big place, with seating inside and out. I can definitely recommend the tropical shrimp tacos. Warning – do not order the “Big Juan Burrito” unless you have a MASSIVE appetite. Friendly staff, fast efficient service – great food. Recommend

We usually stop at Tortuga Cantina when we travel because they are consistant in their menu. This Galveston location was no different. It was near our hotel and within walking distant. We were surprised that the parking lot was not busy. When we walked in it was evident, the restaurant was filthy. The floor had food every where. I know... More

I had the gigantic beef burrito and was enough to feed 2-3 people. It was pretty good as well as the service. Get the Jack Peach Rita also. It will do ya right.

Good food, nice service and it was clean. We enjoyed the queso dip a lot. Everyone was friendly and we will go back.
