I have it here several times in the past, food and service is always been good. Just happen to be in Tucson and decided to take a friends since it was Cinco de Mayo, we almost walked out. The mango margarita was good, the tacos were good and the burrito was OK. The service absolutely SUCKED! It took forever to... More

The restaurant is large and spacious with great booths and tables. Decor is fun and in Mexican spirit with Mexican and Latin Music playing. A very large menu to choose from and portions are generous and we found our order excellent. We had the fish tacos (3 tacos on flour tortilla) - great salsa and taste. Also had the Chicken... More

We drove by & saw plenty of cars, so we stopped! This is the cleanest Mexican restaurant that we have ever been to! The food had great presentation & the taste matched it! Although it took a while to get our food, it was well worth the wait! Excellent food!!!

We had Fajitas & Quesadillas. Home made nachos & salsa are provided at no charge. This was a nice feature not we found salsa too watery and nachos to 'hard'. Fajitas were freshly made but not overly tasty. Beef was cut in larger pieces rather than strips and 'tough/chewy'. Quesadillas were nicely prepared and tasty.

I like coming to this place when we are in town because the buffet includes menudo. It is a little pricier than ordering a regular bowl from the menu, but I think it is better and you can also have other items like chilaquiles, tamales, mini chimis, etc. Service is usually OK but this time they did neglect our drink...

We had were looking for a different restaurant when we came across Los Portales. Tired and hungry from traveling we decided to stop in. Best decision ever! The food was amazing. The waitstaff and menu was bilingual. The salsa was good, but hot. So, be prepared for that. The atmosphere was bright and festive. There was no mariachi band that... More

Because of this special day, we invited a bunch of family and arrived at the doorstep by noon, anxious and hungry. We were told by phone the day before that Mariachis would be playing from 11 to 2 but informed no, they had been gone since 10 am. Not to worry because of the great buffet awaiting, NOT: cold menudo,... More

Best flour tortillas I have ever eaten! The food and drinks were excellent the waitstaff are bilingual and genuinely friendly. A mariachi band serenaded couples while we ate. Overall, though this is not the nicest part of town, I would recommend any locals or visitors to head south and check this place out!

Most of the food is above average Mexican, but the mole was much too sweet with no spice. Would not recommend. Salsa was excellent and Margaritas were average. It was not crowded but service was very slow. I think only one server for too many tables. Was expecting well-above average food based on the slowness of the kitchen, but that... More
