Great, authentic Mexican food. We like the Carne adovada burrito for lunch. Sopas, chips and salsa and a drink are included in the lunch at a very reasonable price.

I found this small shop on Trip advisor and I was not disappointed. The service was fast, the food was HOT and FRESH. I was given options of popular items and went with the one that included the tamale, rellenos and enchilada. The green and red chili was great with the red being spicier.

Don't take your friends here for atmosphere; bring them for the best Mexican food in town. It's a simple place in a strip mall, but the friendly owners and tasty food make up for the lack of aura. We were in a group of 19 people one evening; everybody agreed that the various combination plates were super, and the whole... More

My husband found this gem. I can't believe I've lived here two decades and did not know about this place. It is a small, independent that has been here 30 years! I drive by it all the time yet just visited for the first time. This is a MUST try. I ordered the chili with brisket! OMG! I will probably... More

I drove by this hole in the wall every weekend on the way to my kid football games. I thought it looked like a good place to get some authentic Mexican. We grabbed take out one night and the food was great. The queso dip was delicious and spicy. The chips were fresh and homemade. The entree's were also good.... More

After driving all day, my family and I wanted a Mexican food dinner. We found Ortega's on Trip Advisor, and decided to give it a try. This restaurant is in a small strip of stores. The menu did not have a large selection of meals, but everything we had was good, and the prices were good as well. They do... More

I really wish I lived a few states closer, I seriously would consider make a day trip just to have dinner there again. The tacos... Best we have ever eaten. Period.

I have heard for a few months about how good Ortegas was but I joined a coworker there and I was not disappointed. Not only was the food good it was served fast and didn't damage the wallet. There was 3 of us and the meal was only $24!! That's a steal in my book. I would go back in... More

After riding the Sandia tram, my family was ready for lunch. Looking in YELP, my daughter found Ortegas Mexican Restaurant. It bills itself as a hole in the wall restaurant. The place was spotless, and the service was exceptional. The food was fresh, hot, plentiful, and served quickly. All of our meals were delicious. The owner, Rudy, even came over... More
