Bad margarita, salty chicken fajitas, no one around to bus dirty tables...this was not the Tortuga's I had visted many times over the past several years. Better off choosing Salsa's further down on Seawall Blvd.

Staff was great food was not so great some of our food was under cooked or not prepared the way we asked. Then we had to wait a very long time to have it prepared the way we asked for it. Which was not very difficult i do believe that our food was even cold the second time it came... More

We have been coming to Tortuga's for years. It is as good as it gets. Service is great, food is better. I have the stuffed pablano, a real treat. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting real Mexican cuisine

Had a good meal here at an odd hour - 4 p.m. on Friday. Good margaritas, good enchiladas, solid service. Everything seemed very clean and for convenience you just can't beat it. Must be a local LEO favorite too, we watched some of Galveston's Finest go in for lunch the day after we were there.

This is your standard tex-mex food. The portions are large and flavorful, but not great. We had margaritas which were outstanding. We had a large table of six people. Service was quick and our server was excellent. Everyone cleaned their plates, so we can't complain about the food. I would come here again to try more dishes. It is good... More

I wanted to eat at Tortugas only because if the name since I have visited the Dry Tortugas National Park. It was very good, the waitress was really good. I asked what I should get and what her favorite was. I don't remember what I got but I do remember it being very good. We were there in the middle... More
