Ortega's is a good old Mexican restaurant with tacos, burritos, fajitas, chips and salsa. It's our go to Mexican restaurant in the Groton/New London area.

We've eaten at Ortegas a number of times. The food is always consistent quality and quantity. The staff are attentive. The guacamole is delicious!

The best enchiladas I've ever had. Definitely try it al carbon. I don't know what it means but it tasted fantastic. Between this place and Paul's Pasta, you never need to leave the neighborhood.
