Good place to take the family. Seemed to me like a normal Mexican restaurant. Food was good but not special. It worth a stop.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. I'm from Texas and my Wife is from California so we are very good judges of Latin Cuisine. La Portal is the real thing. Its a pleasant environment and the Staff is friendly. Chips, Salsa and Queso are flowing. The Chicken and Beef enchiladas are sublime. Be sure to get... More

Lunch time visit, service was very efficient from friendly waiters. Food was amazing in taste and presentation. Prices are good for the large portions they serve. Loved the surprise at the end of our meal. You will have to eat there to find out what that was. Will definitely return on our next trip to the area.

The meals here are legendary for high quality and great value. The service is quick and friendly. Complimentary chips and salsa are on your table with a jug of ice water before your buns settle in your booth! The portions are large so you should order accordingly. There is a nice surprise at the end of your meal which you... More

El Portal is a family style Mexican food restaurant. We took our sister in law for lunch, her choice of restaurants (there are not a lot of choices in the Omak/Okanogan area!) The food was served quickly and hot, with generous helpings. The waiter was attentive but not overbearing. The food tasted good but not exceptional. Will remain on our... More

Very good Mexican food in this clean, friendly little restaurant. Salsas taste fresh, not an excess of cheese topping the enchiladas, tasty mole, choice of refried or rancho beans, family owned and always attentive to diners requests. Prompt service no matter how busy ! Close to hotel accommodations , pharmacy , Penneys, and Safeway .
