Great ambiance, good food, friendly service, and reasonably priced. What more could you ask for? We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Clean. Fun atmospere. Pretty good food. Had an enjoyable time. They were celebrating somebody's birthday the night we went and so it was a very festive atmosphere. Lots to eat and drink and the food servers were so friendly. Would go back. Actually did eat there twice. Both times a good experience.

You know what you are going to get here - good, basic Tex-Mex fare. Had steak tacos last night and they were pretty good. Service was good. El Porton is a good call when you a Mexican night out.

Their food is good 99% of the time. Not sure if it's authentic, but who expects that unless this is their tag line? I do see lots of Latinos eating family dinner there on Sunday so it must be good to them. Excellent carnitas, guac, steak fajitas, and tacos. They did have horrible service (errors and times) a while back... More

Ate at El Porton with co workers during lunch and they were fast and efficient. The fresh guacamole made table side was absolutely delightful. Our entrees were served timely and the taste was delightful. Will definitely stop in again for lunch and maybe even after work for margaritas! :-)

Great to kick off a weekend for some spicy food with great service. Food is nothing unique, but its cheap and clean. Great for groups

No thing out standing here. We go every other month due to location and we know what we will get. Average every thing; service, food drinks. Good for kids as the guacamole is fresh but far from fine dining. Think lunch line from school. One word weak.

We eat here probably more often than we should, but the food is so good we can't stay away! On Sundays they have a lunch buffet and live mariachi music, so it can get loud and sometimes the service is slow. The guacamole made fresh at the table is the best!
