El Porton Mexican Restaurants Reviews
I am of Hispanic origin and on the night of my graduation I thought I'd give El Porton a try. It seemed close to authentic, food was great, they give you large helpings and everything. But the table we sat at was by the bar and close to the kitchen. There wasn't many people in the restaurant so the waiters sat by the bar watching a soccer game. I found it rude that the waiters take advantage of some of their customers not being able to speak Spanish, they were cussing up a storm. With children present, might I add. The service was awful, our drinks stayed empty most of the time, not even toritas were given to us when we got our fajita plates. It was awful, the waiters just sat around cussing, watching the soccer game and worst of all..ignoring us. One of my party members, desperate for service even asked a waiter at the bar. He acted as if he didn't hear her. At the end of the meal my father was angry and started to complain. We ended up getting a discount, only paying somewhere around $47 dollars for 5 of us. Even though the food was good, we can go somewhere else for good food and get great service. But that restaurant seems that its gotten too big to even realize what made them what they are today, their customers.
El Porton has been my family's favorite Mexican restaurant since it first opened! They have the best white cheese dip ever! And for those that like to have a cocktail with their dinner, try the frozen Margaritta...It will knock your socks off! The portions are perfect. You will not leave here disappointed!
I've eaten at a lot of local Mexican restaurants and this is by far my favorite. Their fajita steak meat is the best of any restaurant I've ever been to. Love this place.

I rarely ever write tips for any restaurant but please go to Taco Bell. Chimichanga had awful chopped up beef, beef tacos taste like crap, and chicken tacos were covered in pepper crap. Eww worst food
