Upset for them charging more than on my receipt, 6/08/2013

I got two tacos togo for total 3.75. The charge posted on my acocunt for 4.75. My receipt is 3.75. Why did they add a dollar for tip without my knowledge? Very upset!


Love this restaurant, 5/02/2013

This restaurant is our kitchen away from home. When we do not feel like cooking but we still want a home-cooked style meal, we come to this neighborhood restaurant. The waiters are friendly and... attentive. The food is served quickly and is tasty. The atmosphere is laid-back and unpretentious.

We likey

Every once in a while we get a hankerin' for Mexican food, even though I consider it "Death on a Plate". But they have the best chicken soup. It doesn't have a lot of the goop that other places put in theirs. It's flavorful and has lots of chicken and avocado without being too busy. I usually get that and a big-ass Texas margarita that takes me the entire dinner to finish and between it and the soup I am full before my entree comes. My hub always gets the flautas and he seems to like them pretty well, but not the after effects of the Mexican food. Ugh. Usually the service is pretty good. Last time we went the waiter was an eejit, but all the other times, it's been fine and fast.

Worst. "Mexican." Ever.

Wow. I was astounded by the craptacular meal we were served at El Porton. Stale chips, watery salsa... and that was just the appetizer. We should have taken the hint and walked out, but we were hungry, and love Mexican food. But, even by American standards this was junk. The enchilada plate had all the flavor of a cardboard box. If you want some decent mexican with a little more authenticity and a LOT more FLAVOR try El Zorito (I think that's the name) just south of Canton street.

Would not go back, felt discriminated

We are Hispanic and when we got to the restaurant we were sitted by the hostest on a section that was empty. We felt discriminated because everybody else were sitted on the other section. As people came to  the restaurant, they were sitted on that section, while we were on the other section by ourselves just because we had painter's clothes. We have gone to bahama breeze, chili's, and we wearing our painter clothes and we have never experienced any discrimination against us. It's hard to believe that a restaurrant that is from your own country would do this to you.  I will never go back to this place and do not recommend to any fellow Hispanic people.

Can't be beat

My wife and I LOVE Mexican food and this is our favorite place to get it. When the weather is good the outside seating is really nice. The food and margaritas are unbeatable and the wait staff is really nice and good. And maybe the best part is that they “don have no STINKIN mariachi band’ annoying the crap out of you while trying to eat a taco!

Good Mex

Average Mex as a whole, but I do like their Chicken Soup. It tastes fresh with just the right amount of spice for me

YUM!

El Porton is our favorite local Mexican joint. Great food and service and they aim to please! We tend to stay away on Friday night - too many kids running around with no parental supervision! But other than that, excellent dishes and great value!

Great Value!

Really good food for the price, they have excellent margaritas and the service is always pleasant and welcoming. I’ve tried many dishes and they are all very good and different. Really enjoy going here and I highly recommend it to others.

Good Mexican Food - nice family atmosphere

My family of 4 (2 young daughters) enjoy eating here. Easy to get to, has an outdoor deck (good in the spring/fall), and plenty of booths for when we sit inside. Good variety to the menu, and never been disappointed with the quality of the food. Occasionally you may get a little forgotten when sitting outside however.
