“Highly Recommend”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We found this Mexican Restaurant by accident. What a pleasant surprise. The menu is varied and a bit different. The food was some of the best Mexican food we have ever experienced. The custom made margaritas were very good. You couldn't go wrong if you are in the mood for a Mexican treat that won't drain your bank account.

“EL-D”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

First time in the restaurant and like it. Very good customer service. I never see waiter with that smile. All the time he was smiling and provide chips and salsa without even asking. Food was so good. No waiting too.

“Good First Time”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Was excited about this restaurant on first visit with good food, service and ambience. Was disappointed a bit on Cinco De Mayo celebration visit with quality of food and not able to enjoy the mariachi music. Overall, a Good place for Mexican food.

“Best Carnitas ever!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

My measure of a Mexican restaurant is Carnitas and El Porton in Roswell has the best I've ever tasted. Great food, great service, great price!

“Ah Ya Hee!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

El Porton has both Tex Mex favorites and upscale Latin American dishes. The menu is diverse both in selection and price. The beer is reasonably priced and cold.

Thursday night is the standing Taco special night. They are standing room only on Thursday night.
