good value

We go here for lunch once a week. It has inside seating (very cold during summer months), and outside seating which is pleasant. The value is there and we have yet to have a bad experience after two years. It is comforting to see Hispanics in the retaurant. They know what is good Mexican food.

I took my kids for Mexican lunch here. It basically covers all basis but nothing special. The chips were 'ok'. It was convenient to where I was that day. Would not return.

I have been to El Porton several times, usually for a beer and take-out. Can't comment on the table service, but the bar service and take-out are excellent. Good beer and drink selection. Food is quite good and reasonably priced.

we always came here for family meals . Has booths and not a bad ambiance. The food is not as good as it used to be. The margaritas are not as good as they used to be. We are now going to La Parilla which is alot noisier but minimally better food and more colorful ambiance.

My entire family has been coming here for years (we starting eating at El Porton when they were across the street in the strip mall). The food is always amazing!!! At this point, we have tried everything on the menu (and everything is great!). The queso is amazing (especially with jalapenos). This location has the best atmosphere (we have eaten... More

This is the best Mexican food I have ever had, even though it is mostly Mexican-American food. The atmosphere is fun and busy.

We found this Mexican Restaurant by accident. What a pleasant surprise. The menu is varied and a bit different. The food was some of the best Mexican food we have ever experienced. The custom made margaritas were very good. You couldn't go wrong if you are in the mood for a Mexican treat that won't drain your bank account.
