On my way through Tappahannock headed South to NC for the Easter holiday, getting late and I am hungry! I have passed this spot too many times to count, never stopping because of their recent total renovation. I can tell I will have major heartburn tonight but I don't think I will care from what I see has been put... More

The wait staff was very attentive. The shrimp Quesadilla was amazing. The shrimp was grilled to perfection. I really wanted to eat all of it but the portion was so filling I brought part of it home to have for lunch tomorrow. I will definitely be ordering this again.

Mexican food is my favorite. So when passing through this area, I was glad to see LP and stopped for late lunch. Chips and salsa were great, server was terrific, lunch also great. They are in process of remodeling but don't let that deter you. Spoke with either owner or manager for a few minutes, very nice guy. Wife and... More

The food here is amazing!!! This family owned restaurant is a great place for families or even date night. The guacamole is life changing and the margaritas have a heavy pour. My family has been going here for years and this is our favorite restaurant in Tappahannock. Great lunch prices.

This is our go to place for Mexican food in town. Been to the other place in town and have been disappointed both times. Have not had a bad meal here yet. Homemade hot sauce is outstanding and gives a nice kick to the food. Sometimes the food comes out a little staggered instead of all at once but other... More

Tappahannock, VA does not boast many restaurants, but we read good things about Los Portales and decided to go to lunch there. It's a pretty restaurant and a great smell of Mexican food greets you when you walk in. My husband was happy that they had draft beer, which is unusual for some Mexican restaurants. The salsa and chips were... More

So used to getting good Mexican food when I'm on travel in San Diego and have found very few places in comparison. Stopped by Los Portales in Tappahannock and it was absolutely the best! Service, food, selection, atmosphere; all great! They are still going through their remodeling phase but they managed to get everyone seated in a timely fashion and... More
