Before Memphis filled with taco trucks, this spot was serving street style tacos and Mexican sandwiches. The owner, Pepe, gets his ingredients from local farmers markets. The fish tacos are amazing. The Mexican corn and tesoto tea are addicting. It’s a little on the pricey...More

Food is very fresh. Definitely not your typical "Taco Bell" style restaurant. Do not expect to receive chips and cheese dip. It's not that type of Mexican restaurant. I have many favorites to include the Avocado sandwich, Tortilla Soup, Chicken enchiladas, Cheese and chorizo quesidilia....More

It is apparent that food quality is a high priority at Las Tortugas. The carne asada tacos are made with PRIME ribeye! Everything was fresh and yummy. The guacamole was top notch. The corn on the cob was delightful and the horchata was perfectly sweet....More

My favorite place for Mexican food, period. Nothing else comes close. Queso fundido and elote con mavonesa v cotija are incredible. Do not leave without trying the tesote tea. Perfect drink on a hot day.

Everything on the menu is superb. My favorite is the chicken soup with fresh avocado. The space is small and the clientele is still willing to wait in line to order and find a seat - it is THAT good.
