HOW IT STARTED?
Everything started in La Taqueria El Jagüique in Degollado, Jalisco when Enrique Villaseñor was selling tacos to feed his four kids Fernando, Miguel, Maribel, and Ramón.
The four siblings emigrated to the USA in 1994. For a couple years they were working for Mexican restaurants in the area and in 1998 they decided to follow their Father's legacy, and also his authenticity, and provide to Wilmington a place to enjoy the tradition of Mexico. This is how Los Portales opened in 2006, offering authentic Mexican Food in Kerr Avenue.
WHAT MAKE US SO GOOD?
The variety of meats to prepare the tacos has been the characteristic that sets apart this taqueria from other Mexican restaurants. Incorporating twelve different types of meat such as cheek, tongue, pork rinds, buche and tripe, just to mention some of the most unique and popular in Mexico. They also have more common meats known here in the USA such as steak, beef, chicken, and chorizo. There is also a variety of toppings and salsas for the tacos at the extensive salsa bar.
