Drinks & Nightlife

Local brewery. Great beer brewed in house. Rotating flavors with the seasons. They also have a "coffee house" area up front. Seems like they always have something going on here: open mike nights, community meetings, etc. They often have food trucks out front in dinner time. If the trucks are not there they have a basket of menus for delivery.

Essentials

Quick walk up the road. Nothing particularly special but nothing negative either. Generic big chain grocery store with a Starbucks in it.

Easily in walking distance. It's a smallish supercenter.

Food Scene

The sign out front says $1.25 scoop. Don't let that scare you away. The place isn't much to look at. I would not suggest their "scoop" food. In fact if you want typical cheap Chinese just skip this place, they serve it but I wouldn't suggest getting it here. Ask them for the "other menu. They serve authentic Shanghai-style food that is worth the trip. This is a true hole in the wall gem.

Great local pizza shop. Honest opinion here. I like it, I don't love it, but I like it. I am not in the majority. People literally drive across town to get Rico's food. While I may not be bowled over by their food I love the customer service. It is a small shop that goes out of its way to make sure you are happy and feel welcomed. Everybody that comes in is family. You can walk here in minutes and will walk past it every time you go that direction. The smell will draw you in. It smells so good. They have $2.50 meatball or sausage subs. Again good but not great. The meats they use do qualify as great. Things to be aware of before you go: they are closed on Sunday and they do not accept any cards.

Yes they do share a building with a Conoco gas station. Order the carnitas, they are crisp and moist. The flavor will send you to the heavens. The black beans have wonderful flavor. I wouldn't recommend the fajitas, they are not bad but you can get comparable at pretty much any Mexican restaurant. Before you leave get an order of churros. Flip side here if you are just out walking and checking out the neighborhood stop in for some churros to go and munch as you walk.

Need to start this by letting you know where I am coming from. My Mexican food taste is more in line with Tex-Mex. I enjoy green chili as a condiment not a drink or primary ingredient. Los Portales is a nice family run restaurant (don't be surprised if the kids are running around). The food is good generic slightly altered for the Gringo Mexican. I wouldn't go out of my way but if you are in the mood for Mexican this would be the place to go. Like many other restaurants I like it isn't anything special to look at. In the middle of an old strip mall it is unassuming and easy to miss.
