Ortega's in Groton is really good, so I tried this place because I heard it was the same family. Please do yourself a favor and stay away. Lousy atmosphere, food less than mediocre.

Everything served tasted like it came out of a jar or can. I've had frozen meals that tasted better. The atmosphere and service were ok, but the food was not restaurant quality.

I live in Phoenix and am picky about the Mexican food that I eat. Went to Ortega's and had some enchiladas with their Tomatillo sauce. It was great! Their chips and salsa are good also. Don't miss the Jalepeno poppers which are tasty and not...More

When we first walked in, we were told immediately that the first dining room was closed and to find somewhere in the next. We picked out a booth and the waitress? slammed two menus down in front of us and then threw 3 sets of...More
