I've eaten at Las Tortuga 7-8 times and have never been disappointed. It is not aTexMex place, which I like, but considerably different and something I like even better. The owner is personable and passionate about his food and its being consistently of a high quality. Once there was a sign posted apologizing for not having guacamolae because good avacados... More

It's real mexican food with real mexican taste, grest flavors and service. I highly recommend the tacos...! The place is clean but and is so cowded, many times you have to wait for a table. Enjoy.

The food is great here, the BEST Mexican food in Memphis. The only drawback is Pepe refuses to expand, finding a place to sit during busy times is a challenge. And god forbid one of your party sits down before ordering. Pepe will run you out and chop your head off...but the food is fantastic....perhaps a couple picnic tables in... More

This little, our of the way Mexican restaurant serves very authentic Mexican food. If you are looking for Mexican food that hasn't been "Americanized", then you'll love this place. The owner is always on site and makes you feel like family. I would highly recommend this place. Be sure to try the tilapia tacos with avocado.

Food was okay. But I think this place is way overpriced. We spend $27 for two without drinks. The setting is an average fast foot place with a lot of weird signs the own likes to make. The only have plastic cutlery, I don't remember getting that in Mexico. (And they make a big fuss about it how "Mexican" this... More

Las Tortugas is a no fuss, casual Mexican Deli. The food is always perfect, and the counter staff will gladly help you select from the traditional Mexican cuisine. There is usually a crowd, but the line moves swiftly and a meal here is always worth the wait!

My wife and I have a romantic connection to this unique and addictive eatery --we love it. Very unique, foodstuffs purchased fresh from local farms every day, immaculately prepared by Latinas and supervised by the owners at all times. Fish tacos, tesote, guacamole to die for, el pastor sandwich, and a host of other out of the ordinary dishes Are... More

I went there because it was close to the hotel. I will go back because the food was amazing and the owner treated me like family! He has a genuine passion for creating excellent food and a love for his customers that shines through! This is one in a million!
