My son had the Cheese quesadilla with fries (they brought it out with rice first and we sent it back for the change) My wife ordered the Caribbean martini and they brought out a cosmo - we sent it back and they had to come back and forth 3...

I had the burritos verdes. I just didn't think it was that special. It tasted fine by i eat at a lot of Mexican restaurants and this was below average. The music was decent I believe it was live in another part of the restaurant. It was crowded for a Saturday but we were seated promptly

I have been to a number of different Mexican places and this one is just above average. The service was incredibly friendly and welcoming. The food wasn't amazing but it wasn't bad either.

Really nothing good to say, most every experience was bad. We ordered cheese dip, it never arrived. The refried beans was more like soup than beans. They refilled our salsa bowl but not chips so we had a full bowl of salsa and that was about it. Waiter never came back to table to refill drinks, ask about meal or... More

This is our go to Mexican restuarant. We have to travel 15-16 miles to get here, but it is worth every minute of the trip. The food is great and the service impeccable. My husband is so enamored of their salsa, we are always adding a pint or quart to take home. Sunday brunch is a lot of fun or... More

Love the Sunday brunch buffet. Worth every penny of the $13 price. The authentic Mexican dishes of barbacoa, lamb, tripe, tongue, handmade tortillas, charro beans, etc. are standouts. The soups were perfect for the chilly day, and the spicy salsas (3 or 4 to try) really warmed us up. Our sever (something like Allia) was very attentive. She knew when... More

The service was great. The food was tasty without a long wait. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Our server even offered the split up the check, which can be a problem some places.

This El Porton used to be a family favorite and we'd go at least once a week, and often more. Now we've given up on them. Over the past several months we've experienced poor service as the norm, stale chips, and often our old favorites on the menu are unappetizing and poorly executed. Very sorry to see this place go...
