Perfect

Stopped by for lunch on our way back North. This was only my second visit to Porto's (first one for this location) and I'm in love. It's busy but quick. Delicious, quality and priced right. Cheese rolls are perfection. Sandwiches are satisfying. I couldn't stop eating the plantain chips.

We stumbled across Porto's as we were heading to fly out of nearly Burbank Airport after our vacation. The sandwiches and meat pieces were great. Lines were long in the mid-afternoon. I can only imagine how long the lines are during peak times.

My son who lived in Burbank for a time insisted that we stop by Portos to get breakfast for the next day. So glad he did! We got potato balls (kind of a croquette with a spiced meat mixture inside of mashed potatoes and then fried) and cheese rolls which were cream cheese inside of a flaky pastry. So good!... More

Porto's doesn't need another review saying how amazing the food is. Everything from the baked goods, desserts, sandwiches, coffee- everything is amazing. But many of the reviews don't explain exactly how packed Porto's. Unless you get there at early in the morning, expect long lines and a considerable wait. I recently took some out of town guests to Porto's and... More

Porto's is a Burbank institution, as evidenced by the line out the door on most days. However, they're used to the crowds and serve you faster than seemingly possible, despite the madness happening everywhere inside the place. Don't be afraid to jump on the line. The menu is pretty deep, but you can never go wrong with the favorite a... More

One of the best bakeries around, specialty cakes=top notch, desserts/pastries win the prize, great for breakfast and lunch. Nice to stop and get a treat any time of day. I've ordered fabulous cakes here. Had meals with friends and family here. It's always busy, but for good reason.

By the long lines you will know right away why. This is truly one of the best bakeries in Southern California. This lines may be long, but the staff is plentiful and efficient. The backed good are fantastic and the potato balls are to die for!

Parking a bit of a challenge. Always long lines, but they move fast. Order will be brought to your table. Tables are hard to come by, but just wait a minute or two and something will open up. Tables inside and a few outside along the sidewalk. Husband had the roasted pork sandwich (pan con lechon) and I had the... More
