Good food and good service from the cashier to the bussers. The red salsa is yummy but spicy... Green salsa is even more spicy. Good size tacos and free chips and salsa??? Need I say more? They have their own little parking lot which makes it a little easier to get to. A gem in Richmond. I recommend it.

We stop by Portumex at least once a month. Small, family-owned, family-friendly restaurant with excellent, affordable, traditional Mexican food.

This is tough because I like to support small, neighborhood spots. That being said, my friends had the burritos,tongue and carne asada. They rated them a 7 and a 10. I had the flautas. I love flautas, but these were drier than the Mojave. I suspect they were hanging out in the back under a warming apparatus. All the guac,... More

Portumex is one of my favorite restaurants in Richmond. Their burritos, tacos, and enchilada's are to die for. I could go on and on about their menu but I recommend that you visit and experience the food for yourself.

Portumex offers high quality versions of the standard Mexican dishes. Nothing new here, but well prepared. They offer very good menudo and pozole on weekends. You can eat outside or in, and they do a lively take-out business.They have a small parking lot, but street parking is easy. The restaurant is in Richmond's vibrant Hispanic shopping area.
