5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

This small cafe is great with large portions of excellent food at reasonable prices. Near the freeway and Claar Cellars in Zillah and easy access to services.

“Fine, but wouldn't rush back”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2011

Decided to eat at El Porton based on Yelp and Trip Advisor reviews. The food was fine, but prices were much higher than I anticipated. Portions are HUGE, so unless you eat a lot or want leftovers, share with a friend. (NOTE: I rated value with three stars not due to price, but because of portion size.) Beware, it's right next to a car wash so it can be impossible to hear/talk in the outdoor seating area at times. Service was good and it was clean. Still, I will try some of the other well-rated places in the area before returning here.
