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!

Went because of good reviews. Food was okay,but I've had better tort as elsewhere (though this may be an unfair comparison since I'm getting them from a Rick Baylis restaurant usually.

The tacos are very tasty. You get 4 small tacos on corn tortillas simple style as I am told they are made in Mexico City. The owner and his son are both very friendly and are happy to tell you all about their history. I like the food enough to return, but be warned most of the negative reviews you... More

Such a hidden gem in the Memphis/Germantown area. Very small location with a very big menu and loyal, local clientele. This is not your run of the mill Mexican joint where you come to fill up on the chips and salsa. This is the real deal and worth the trip.
