“Superb food, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Absolutely great food, huge menu and very quick and friendly service. The salsa is very fresh and tasty. The chile relleno was interesting, a cheese stuffed chile wrapped in a tortilla, covered with melted cheese and an excellent roasted tomato sauce that was smoky and dense. Superb. A must stop.

“Best Mexican Food in the Yakima Area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

If you are looking for amazing Mexican food in and/or around Yakima this is the place to go! I'm not sure how many locations there are in Washington State but I've been to this one and the one in East Wenatchee. Can't go wrong!

“Best Mexican in the Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

El Porton has always been one of my favorite restaurants. They also do catering for weddings and special occasions. Staff is professional and the prices are reasonable!

“EXCELLENT,As ALWAYS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

This place has the best mexican food north of Escondito California! Three of us ate way more than we should have for under fifty dollars... Try the meat in it's own juices:) A very good soup/stew dish. The staff here are plesant,the food is wonderful! We always make El Porton a destination for food whenever we are in the Yakima area.

“Clean, well priced,”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

El Porton is a very popular mexican restaurant in Yakima. It is packed all of the time. Their staff is friendly, the menu is large, prices are good and portions are huge. The only downside is that almost everything is covered in vast amounts of cheese and sauces. Think of it as american/mexican food and accept the 2k calorie hit and your fine. Otherwise visit someplace more authentic.
