Really nothing good to say, most every experience was bad. We ordered cheese dip, it never arrived. The refried beans was more like soup than beans.

This El Porton used to be a family favorite and we'd go at least once a week, and often more. Now we've given up on them. Over the past several months we've experienced poor service as the norm, stale chips, and often our old favorites on the menu are unappetizing and poorly executed. Very sorry to see this place go...
