We have been there twice, service was good both times. Food was good, the salsa they bring to the table to munch is really good. The restaurant entrance itself is down an alley way, so it may be easy to miss. There is also an...More

In the past, it has been great service and food. This particular week was not a good one for the Mexican restaurant. They were very busy as the word was out that they were closing. The wait time was the most we've ever waited. The...More

We have been to this place several times and to be frank it's completely hit or miss. A couple times it's been yummy and the others have been a total bomb. The Mexican chorizo pizza is always tasty. The sodas are pricey, margaritas are also...More

We had reservations for 7:00 but weren't seated until 7:40 and only because I came out of the bar to see if our table was ready. The hostess never came to get us. Then we waited until 8:00 for the waitress to come take our...More

Have eaten here many times, both in the restaurant, and at the attached bar, Mitchell s. Food is inconsistent, as is the service. Some of their dishes are quite good (Chipotle Shrimp), where other come out bland or soggy. Service is never great, sometimes adequate,...More

If "back alley" and "hole in the wall" conjure negative images, you might be surprised by Tortgua's Cocina. I would have missed the place if others hadn't pointed it out to me. Once inside, the modestly decorated dining room, we felt immediately at home. The...More
