This is a very unassuming little restaurant. But the prices are very, very affordable & the quality is always consistent. My favorite are the tamales, which come in chicken, beef or cheese. The atmosphere is not much, in fact there is none. But the service is always friendly and you can't go wrong with any of the tacos, burritos or... More

We loved the food. Great portions and fresh ingredients. Just down the street from the zoo. We had platters, fajitas, and the chips were hand made.

This is my go to spot whenever I want Mexican food in Omaha. I don't have a need to go anywhere else. I personally always get the Tacos Dorados with steak (please be aware the steak's texture is not the best - mildly chewy, but I just can't get past the wonderful flavor); this includes beans and rice AND a...

This has become one of my favorite authentic Mexican restaurants in town. This is NOT an Americanized version of Hispanic food, it is the real deal. The interior has recently been totally remodeled, so this little eatery has transformed from a bit of a dive to a nice clean, cheerful space. The food is great, I almost always have the... More

Driving by, this place doesn't look like much but step inside and give it a try. We only had tacos, and they were great as were the salsa and chips. There's nothing fancy here, just great food and service.

The red and green salsa also amazing and guacamole is the best in Omaha. Don't go for the atmosphere, go for the food!

I just had two fabulous tacos lengua, a bowl of corn chips, and a chocolate ice cream cone for $5.80!! With the tip it was $7.80. I can't eat at home for that nor could I cook it as well. Service was great plus bilingual so I can practice my Spanish. Los Potales is the real deal.

When you pull up you question whether you should go in or not. Once your in you question whether you should order or not. See it though. The food and service were exceptional. Great authentic menu And servers were pleasant and fast to respond. Definitely would go again.

Los Portales has great service, amazing food at a great price, but a terrible atmosphere. :) It took me over two years before I actually went in, because the restaurant front really looks bad. The inside is no better, but it is clean and certainly family friendly. We often get a burrito, which is large enough for my husband and... More
