Consistently the best Mexican inspired dishes in the area. Visiting friends from Florida never miss stopping here for dinner when they come to town. The service is fast and friendly. The portions are large and the food is excellent. Our favorite is the chicken chimichangas!...More

Very nice, clean, upbeat atmosphere. We arrived here for dinner. The service was great and we liked the entrees we ordered. The chicken taco salad was tasty and so were the mixed grill fajitas. We will definitely dine at this location again.More

Tied with Sirloin Stockafe as one of the two best restaurants in Murray. Wonderful food and service. Never had a bad meal in over 8 years. Average a least a meal a week there.

Stopped in for lunch. Very authentic atmosphere, decor festive. Greeted and seated right away. Our waitress didn't seem thrilled to be working the lunch crowd, but she trooped on. Fajitas were very good. Chips and salsa good. Wait staff team did an overall good job....More

I love Los Portales and eat here often with family. The staff here are wonderful, the owners are such nice people. The new building is beautiful, great atmosphere. Anything you order is delicious. I recently ordered the shrimp street tacos - unbelievably good!

Food was great. Reasonable price. They don't sell alcohol there. I think the whole county is dry. Service was OK. Waiter wasn't very attendive. Will go there again.
