Great ambiance, good food, friendly service, and reasonably priced. What more could you ask for? We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

“Good times”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

Clean. Fun atmospere. Pretty good food. Had an enjoyable time. They were celebrating somebody's birthday the night we went and so it was a very festive atmosphere. Lots to eat and drink and the food servers were so friendly. Would go back. Actually did eat there twice. Both times a good experience.

“Good, Basic Tex-Mex”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

You know what you are going to get here - good, basic Tex-Mex fare. Had steak tacos last night and they were pretty good. Service was good. El Porton is a good call when you a Mexican night out.

“Been coming here for over a decade!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

Their food is good 99% of the time. Not sure if it's authentic, but who expects that unless this is their tag line? I do see lots of Latinos eating family dinner there on Sunday so it must be good to them. Excellent carnitas, guac, steak fajitas, and tacos. They did have horrible service (errors and times) a while back but it seems as though they are working on that and have hired "some new blood" into the place! Fernando is the best server ever...he is so happy to see you it makes you want to go back. The manager is very nice and the couple of times I have had an issue, he was quick to rectify it. I think their food is better than La Parillia's and will continue to eat here. :)
