4 of us went during "Catch the Crush" Yakima Valley wine tasting. Food was bland, greasy, and dried out. Fajitas were tough and oily, enchiladas mealy and dry, and Carnitas were like jerky. I ordered the whole beans instead of refried, and they tasted like boiled and no seasoning or spices The 2 people that had had the Fajitas (2... More

Being from a major agricultural region of California, we grew up spoiled by great, authentic Mexican food. El Porton's food made the grade with us.

Stopped in after wine tasting and found a friendly staff and very clean family restaurant. We thought they had a cantina but no, it was a large bright room with beautiful mexican artwork, booths and tables. Many local families were enjoying a saturday night meal. Dimmer lights would have been nice. Good nachos and drinks next door to our hotel.

This location is right off of I-82, which is very convenient. Very good food-super large portions. Wait staff is friendly and attentive. Fast service. There is also a drive thru if you don't want to go inside.

Whether you sit down or order to go Zillah's El Porton is the best Mexican Restaurant around. It's yummy, convenient, fast, and fun. If you don't want to cook order to go and pick up in the drive thru window. Only takes about 15 minutes.

Excellent food and service! The seating area is very open so not exactly a great place for a romantic, quiet evening. But if you are in for some great food with good service, you will definitely not be disappointed. My favorites are the Enchiladas Suizas and their Cadillac Margarita. Can't be beat!

Thank Supergram52
