Los Portales Mexican Grill
Ranked #700 of 2,057 Restaurants in Jacksonville
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Found this gem on TripAdvisor and we were happy we did. We eat Mexican just about everywhere we go and I'd have to say that this ranks up there with the most authentic Mexican we've ever eaten. For me, the tamal is one of the tests for great Mexican and this was one lovely tamal! House margarita's for $1.99 were just OK, but you can upgrade to a top shelf for $6.75, which is still a great price for a top shelf drink. Enjoy!

We felt amazed that even though the restaurant was packed last night, we received our drinks and meals very quickly. The Dos Equus on tap is outstanding! If you order the Happy Hour Martguerita, you may ask for an extra shot of Tequila in it if you like it a little stronger. We are regular customers of Los Portales for five years now and the food has always been consistently authentic and excellent! My favorite is the Chicken Sinaloense (covered with queso and mushrooms); hers is the #10 Vegetarian combo. Most entrees even come with a small salad topped with guacomole and a half slice of fresh, ripe red tomato. It's a great restaurant for everyone and the prices won't break your wallet!

Stopped by for some dinner while in Jacksonville for a few days and this restaurant was a great find. I enjoyed the free chips and salsa (which is homemade btw). The price for food is very reasonable and it tastes great! They also give you very nice sized portions! I was overall happy with the service, food and cost of my meal here. :)

wjile taking a walk I stumbled upon this place in a small strip mall. The menu looked great so we decided to try it. My wife is a big fan of chicken Mole and hers was delicious. I had chicken enchiladdas which also were superb. A draft beer was 99 cents !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The total bill was $20
I would definitely return if in the area
