The service was great. The food was tasty without a long wait. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Our server even offered the split up the check, which can be a problem some places.

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...

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
