The food is excellent. Very authentic. The service is outstanding. You can order the Guacamole to be made fresh at your table. Have eaten there several times and have never been disappointed.

This is our go to place now that it has moved into the Ranch. The carnitas are delicious. We have not found an item on the menu that is not great.

We go to Los Dos Portillos a couple of times a month. Food is consistently good. It's just good old home style Mexican dishes that are nicely prepared. Nothing exotic or special. It's a standby for my wife and I when we just want to grab a quick lunch or dinner out.

Great Mexican food. The best in the Metro area and never deviates. This place will make it difficult for other Mexican restaurants to survive. Took over a twice failed location Andy is packed every day. Only wish they opened earlier every day for breakfast

We love this restaurant and the new one they opened on Broadway in Highlands Ranch! Huge portions and excellent service. They menu is a book, so everyone can find something! My daughter isn't a huge Mexican food eater and there is a good chunk of plain "American" choices too! Good house margaritas!

This time I had a shrimp dish and it was very good, others had enchiladas, tacos and ribs - all were satisfied with their food. I finally got someone to hold the fruit form my beer and the margaritas are OK. Service was friendly. it was a good night. Parking is not easy. We'll be back

My mom and I come here when we are in area. Big menu which means lot of choices. There is something for everybody. We came right before the dinner rush to get a booth. I had no problems with this place. Food is always good and hot. The salsa with the chips is on the spicier end. There are two... More

This location is as good as the one in Cenntenial, but closer to many of us living west of University. The restaurant is in the old Ruby Tuesday building, which has plenty of seating. The food is good and seasoned just right for those liking some spiciness, but not burning hot. Everything we and our friends have had was enjoyed,... More

This is a big, crowded, loud and busy place. The menu has about 7,000 items on it so it gets complicated if you do not have a go-to favorite. My problem is the I always want to try new things but when eating mexican it is so easy to fall into patterns. I also have trouble with defining "good" mexican... More
