This was a horrible experience and waste of a lunch hour. The staff was all authentic for a Mexican resturant but rude, just not polite at all. The food came fast, maybe 5 minutes on a Friday lunch rush. Nearly every table was full-and I just don't get it. I ordered the fajita plate. The meat was obviously cooked earlier in the day and the plate was not sizzling. The beans were a soup on the side plate, and were gone in 4 fork fulls on the fajita. The rice was just rice and food coloring boiled in chicken stock. The portions were not bad, but poor quality. I ordered the queso dip, $3.50 for a cup of velveeta and cream of chicken soup. The chips were oily and the salsa tasted like ketchup. I ordered some fresh jalepenos to spice up the ketchup dip, and they brought me sliced jalepenos like you buy from wal-mart in a jar-for $1.50 extra on my ticket.Paying was another poor experience, as the manager who was ringing up tickets wouldn't even say hello after 2 attempts to make conversation, and their credit card machine wasn't working so he had to write down my visa info.I wouldn't recommend this resturant for my dogs.
Los Portales is one great Mexican restaurant!! I'm from San Antonio and had to move to Alexandria for school. I must admit that I thought there would not be a good Mexican restaurant here. I'm glad I was wrong. Los Portales would hold its own in San Antonio!
You will not find nicer waiter's! Everyone who works here works as a team. You will not find anyone more willing and happy to please the customer! The food is priced very well. The salsa and chips tastes great and it is free which is always a plus! The food freshly prepared and on your table no later than 10-15 minutes during BUSY lunch time traffic when the entire place is packed! That is unheard of anywhere else where you can sit down and eat! Half the time, McDonalds and Burger King have just as long of a wait!I have been here many times and I have never had a bad experience!
