Not great. Not awful. Run of the mill cheap Mexican food. I want crazy about it but I'm sure I'll go back at some point. It's relatively cheap.

The waiter arranged for the dessert we wanted even though it wasn't on the menu. We were surprised at how low the bill was compared to other places we have eaten and with the quality/... More

We found this restaurant while we were staying in this area before driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway... Ordered to go and ate at our hotel. Large portions and two of us ate for $13, so I thought that was a great price. Was a little hard to find as the apps took us to the old location.

We have been eating at El Puerto for years and it remains our "go to" restaurant when we want Mexican food. Menu is typical tex-mex and prices are quite reasonable (easy to stay under $10 a person for entre and no real need for appetizers as chips and salsa come with the meal.).

The food at El Puerto is pretty good. As was the service and the atmosphere, but the price was a little high.

Just your basic Mexican food, nothing special, nothing outstanding. The ambiance was lacking. Perhaps it was there underneath the filth, but we never saw it.

This is definitely one of my faves. I've gone here many times and the food has always been great. The service a little slow but usually very friendly.

my mom and I have been going here for 10+ years and I think a lot of that has to do with the staff. They are hard working, friendly and considerate. The food is always great. I like the cali burrito it's my go to. It's huge and has everything just stuffed right inside. My mom got the pollo pacifica... More

Great Mexican food! Everyone is friendly and appear to be happy to serve you. Very accommodating when you ask for substitutions. The restaurant is clean and inviting and convenient. Great for families or a meal with a group or friends. I enjoy going there.
