Hate giving negative reviews to family run restaurants but having chosen the restaurant on the strength of Yelp reviews, I feel I owe it to the next person. Stopped in for mid-week lunch with my father and my niece. Never helps that a restaurant is empty but it was early, so no problem. We ordered soup and mussels for appetizers... More

The pride the owner family has in their restaurant is evident in the execution. In the years we have been going to The Taste of Portugal, the restaurant has moved down the little strip mall to a larger location with improving decor. Today we lunched on a real tablecloth with cloth napkins. One of the things that hasn't changed is... More

This is a lovely family-owned restaurant that truly cares for its customers. They are friendly, pleasant and have great Sangria! We have eaten here many, many times and the food is consistenly good and well priced. Many friends (and I) have used their take-out service when we didn't want to cook. Casual atmosphere, good food and reasonable prices - what... More

Always excellent food in a nice atmosphere that was originally a Mexican place. Family owned and attentive. I try to get here a couple of times a year when I visit relatives living nearby. Never disappoints. The fresh potato chips especially good.

One of our favorites. Food and service are consistently excellent. Great value! Our favorite items are the grilled calamari, grilled shrimp and pork chops. All entrees come with shared sides. The chips are the best. Also, they make a great sangria.

Taste of Portugal is a lovely, quaint family-owned restaurant. The whole family is there, cooking, serving, greeting - it's a warm experience to dine here. Sergio - our server - knows the menu a well as the chef and was eager to explain dishes and answer all our questions. We started with fried calamari, which were big rings of tastiness... More
