Las Tortugas Deli Mexicana

1215 South Germantown Road
Germantown, TN 38138

This Mexican eatery in East Memphis offers upscale street food in a vasual environment. Owner, "Pepe" Magallanes shops daily for the freshest meat and vegetables for his authentic Mexican cuisine. You won't find burritos or fajitas gracing the menu at Las Tortugas, but you will find tacos dressed with avocado and cilantro and tortugas (Mexican sandwiches) with a variety of fillings, such as chorizo and egg, shredded pork and pineapple and hand-carved sirloin steak.

Las Tortugas may cost a little more than many expect, but you're paying for the freshness and quality of ingredients. The dining room is small and often crowded. Visit during non-peak hours for the quickest service.
