“Good Food....can get noisy”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Eaten there a couple times....It is a good place...but it can be noisy at times. Meals are fairly priced and for the area it is good to go there at least once.

“Good Experience”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

After looking at some of the latest reviews I was concerned that I might have overlooked something during my visit. However, in all honestly I have to be truthful about my experience. I have dined at the El Porton twice and have really enjoyed it. I have ordered the same thing each time I have dined there (shrimp tacos, shrimp sopes and black beans). My food was very flavorable and hot. I did not have any issues with the food or service. However, my biggest complaint is that they have aquas frescas on the menu but they never have it available. Other than that no complaints.

“Below Average Food”
Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

The fajita combo came out half cooked. The shrimp were still translucent and the chicken was flavorless and way undercooked. It took another 25 minutes to get it cooked more. Had to look hard to find any fish on the tacos. The beans on all the plates were dried up and hard. Cold rice.

“Not So good this time”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

My daughter in law became sick fairly quickly after eating at El Porton this recent Sunday - had the bow of chicken soup - . Have noticed a decline at this restaurant, and after supporting El Porton for years, we are looking for a different and better Mexican restaurant in the local area. Their rating is below average for me now...

“Decent Mexican”
Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

Food is tasty, wait staff is prompt and work hard, a good value. If they pushed themselves a tad harder, and updated the dining room a bit better, think they would really shine... As it is, they are slightly above average, but with more effort could see their business boom!!
