Was at a 3 day training and discovered Porto's was only a few blocks from my hotel!!!! Went in the late afternoon to beat the crowds. The potato and beef balls are great. On my home I stopped and bought bread, pastries and more potato balls for the family!!!! Yummie!!!!

Porto's is truly a place where the American Dream has come true. Mr Porto came with his family with nothing but the clothes on his back with his family and has built this business based on hard work and some of the best Cuban food around. There are two other locations in Burbank and Glendale. The place is most famous... More

I was asked if this was the best meal I ever had in a restaurant. I haven't tried all the entrees and desserts but I must say what I have had was absolutely delicious. The bakery is fantastic! This place is always very busy inside & out. I don't go as often as I would like because the parking sucks... More

We were told by others that we had to experience Porto's Restaurant and we were not led astray. Fantastic food and baked goods all in one. The food was great and the baked goods (carrot cake) was to die for!

I really enjoy this place for lunch. It has variety of sandwiches, all delicious, especially if it is in Cuban bread. It has outdoor seating. I also bought birthday cakes so many times, never had any problem. It is reasonable priced. Sandwiches are between $5 and $8. Cakes between $15 and $40, depends on the size and ingredients. Personally, their... More

Consistency, consistency, consistency...can't say it enough! All three Porto's have the same EXCELLENT customer service and delicious food. I watched as we walked in..from the lines to the coffee counter - the logistics involved in running this uber fabulous bakery - is insane! Well oiled machine, this business model is going to last!!
