Simply Put: Good Food 10/25/2009

Fantastic food! Pros: Fantastic food Cons: The restaraunt is too small more

Excellent 8/7/2009

After trying several times to get in (they are VERY busy, which speaks well of a restaurant), I managed to eat a late lunch there. The first thing I observed was the cleanliness and the extremely nice young man helping the customer in front of me. You could tell he was passionate about his food (turned out, he's the owner, Jonathan). He was equally helpful to me and then the food was over the top! I want to try everything on the menu. Pros: Food & Service Cons: LIttle pricey, but worth every penny more

Fabulous, authentic Mexican! 6/17/2009

This place is crazy busy, so it's not the place to expect individual attention for picky eaters, but there's lots of variety on the menu, and the food is wonderful! They do warn you that this is NOT Tex-Mex, but real Mexican, so some of the dishes may not be what you expect (no cheese on the tacos, for example). There's usually a line of people waiting to order, so you need to be prepared to tell them what you want and get out of the way. I see no reason why vegetarians should expect to be catered to at every restaurant. There are vegetarian dishes on the menu- order those. Pros: Authentic, fresh more

Aggressive and Disrespectful Staff 6/9/2009

I was shocked at the level of condescension and disrespect shown to me and my family. We asked politely for vegetarian queso (as a member of our party is a vegetarian) and the young man at the counter (the owner) responded in an extremely aggressive and rude way--raising his voice at us, followed by the owner's father promptly demanding that we leave. If you do not like to be harassed or disrespected, DO NOT EAT AT THIS RESTAURANT. Cons: Extremely Rude Staff more

Are you kidding!!!!!!!!!!!?? 3/3/2009

We happened upon this place a couple of years ago. The only thing better than the staff and the ambience, is their food. Go here. eat here. This food is crazy wicked. The sandwich bread is as delicious as the fillings, This place is often crowded. But, well worth the wait. Pros: Everything right Cons: Nothing wrong more

Holy Night - Awesome Food, Best In Memphis, Germantown, Or Anywhere! 11/30/2008

Stumbled across this place when visiting G'town from Denver, and my wife and I haven't been the same since! The roasted chicken tortuga is so good it should be x-rated! I loved it so much, I had my brother bring us 6 of them on the plane to Denver about a month later. Wow, if you haven't checked it out yet, be sure you do! Pros: Food Cons: Slower Service - But That's Because They're So Busy, And It's Worth The Wait!!! more

Exquisite 9/23/2008

I've had the traditional Tex-Mex Mexican food offered in the States. Las Tortugas, is in a class of its own. My husband and I went here on a recommendation from my acupuncturist. It was love a first bite. The food was full of flavor and the tortillas were tender. The guacamole is to die for. If you want an experience for your palate, come to Las Tortugas. Pros: The food, the service, the food, . . . . nearly everything. Cons: the cost, a bit pricey more

Incredible food!! 1/16/2008

The fish tacos at Deli Mexicana are absolutely to die for. I just moved to Memphis from Los Angeles and never had any fish tacos this tasty in SoCal. Their fruit juices are incredibly fresh and delicious. I recommend the watermelon juice! I do wish the prices were a little lower, but for the quality and freshness of the food, I'm willing to shell out the extra cash. Pros: Delicious food and juice Cons: Slightly high prices more

Real authentic Mexican Cuisine 9/11/2006

Coming from the 2nd largest melting pan in the World, that is Mexico City, Mexico, and a good Chilango, this place is the closest to good Mexican Cuisine, specially the salsas and the hand made corn tortillas. Favorite dish, specially the morning after a good night, the Chorizo con Huevo tortuga (torta), with lots of green salsa and a cold good Mexican beer. Pros: authenticity of the food Cons: a bit over priced more

Fish Tacos ! 9/7/2006

Pepe' serves up the best fish tacos this side of Southern California, don't know about Mexico. There are only 4 ingredients that make this taco great: the home made corn tortilla, the fresh talapia, a fresh slice of avacado and a great sauce on the side that has a great ting to it. Then, of course there is Pepe' and his son, Jonathon. You get what you pay for. Pros: Fresh ingredients! more

Authentic Mexican deli 6/25/2006

All the food is incredibly fresh and delicious. Best sandwick is the Huevo con Chorizo (Sausage and Egg) - couple that with a Red Snapper flauta and a fresh pineapple juice for a great lunch. Not the cheapest lunch in town but definitely one of the best. Pros: Every dish is a treat Cons: A little pricey - but you get what you pay for more

Something different and tasty! 2/14/2006

I can't wait to go back. Las Tortugas offers amazing sandwiches and tacos, neither of which are like what cookie-cutter mexican restaurants serve. This place mimicks modern Mexican food, and even offers delicious pure fruit juices to go with. I had the red snapper tortuga, and it was incredible. All the ingredients are so fresh, and it's obvious that the whole establishment is a labor of love. Pros: delicous, fresh, friendly Cons: limited seating more
