This little "cheap Mexican " restaurant has been a go to of mine for years. The food is consistently good, service fast and friendly! They even have health low carb options, and sub sides without problems .

Great place for lunch or dinner. I have been here many times and have always been pleased. Here on Tuesday for lunch and the restaurant was packed. That is a sign!

Newly remodeled and looking much better, El Porton is our quick mexican fave locally. We dine here regularly and it is always a good, quick meal. They have a little outside dining area that is super cute (and non smoking!) on sunny days as well as a lot of inside dining, so waiting usually isn't an issue unless you visit... More

Let me start out by saying that I have worked in the food arena. I grew up mostly in the southwest where there is a plethora (3 amigos) of Mexican restaurants. First! The service was horrible!! We waited more than 15 minutes for our order to be taken, and then we waited another good 30 minutes before it came out.... More

To me, this restaurant is 2nd to Pure Taqueria on chips and salsa...very fresh. They are pretty slow bringing them to the table though. I know they have had LOTS of server turnover in the last couple of years and it shows. The service is so SLOW, pretty horrible actually, even when they are slow. Was in last week for... More

I was looking for a New Mexican restaurants and have been pleased with my meals here. My last meal was my favorite ... Chicken in a skillet with grilled onions and peppers. So yummy!!! The margaritas are great and so are the chips and salsa. The chicken entrees have good cuts of white meat and good portions in general. Also... More
