The menu offering is quite impressive. Whether the food is all fresh or not, I have no idea. However, it tastes fresh. I had the Back to School Bowl and could not finish it. Portions are very generous. The seasonal specials are fun. They make...More

I have eaten 2 times at the porch in the last year. The service was very good and the food was good too, but not traditional mexican. It was a very bust place both restaurant and bar.

We have been many times and loved it. Cool surroundings in an old warehouse district. Delicious food with massive portions at solid prices. The space is small though so be prepared for a wait at peak times, fortunately Hoots is around the corner, so it's...More

I was impressed with the shrimp quesadilla at The Porch. It tasted fresh and came in a large portion. If you order the “three amigos” appetizer, you get chips with guacamole, queso, and salsa, for $10. With that, you get bottomless refills! I will say...More

This is not your typical Mexican restaurant! The food is unique and excellent! The ingredients were fresh and the fajitas and tacos were very tasty! Our waiter Alfonse provided excellent service. We will definitely eat here again.

Went once, they were out of multiple menu items and only told us once we had ordered. Decided to give it a second chance, and the same thing happened - out of key ingredients for some of the margs and some entrees. Slow service. Good...More

I can not say enough good things about the food. The Porch naked burrito was amazing as were the avocado fries. The service at the bar was very chaotic so I highly recommend waiting for a table versus eating at a bar. Also, it is...More

not sure, I was a customer travelling through and we just turned up at about 7.00pm without a booking, it was very busy and we sat outside on a table, maybe need to ring them directly- good luck
