Arrived 2/14/17 @ 6 p.m. was seated immediately. They brought chips & salsa, along with water. Then it went down hill. We waited 15 min. for anyone to take our order, and then we had to flag someone down. A 2nd bowl of chips & salsa arrived without asking, but no food. We were told it should be out soon,... More

El Portal has good food. We usually get take out but have also eaten at the restaurant a few times. The service was satisfactory.

This place is near my house and my job and I love going there several times a year for some good Mexican. They have good Fajitas and there are plenty of hot chips and fresh salsa.

My wife taught spanish for several years and would take her classes to this restaurant for a field trip every year. The students would have to order in spanish and converse with wait staff for practice. Valuable teaching experience for language, social skills and interaction. Always good food and very accommodating for groups.

Lunch on Saturday; 0 patrons were Mexican. That says a lot! Bland ground beef in taco, enchilada, burrito. They all tasted exactly the same with the same Hunt's tomato sauce poured over the top. No veggies on taco or served with cheese quesadilla.

We went to El Portal for a quick dinner and it was pretty good. Service was quick, the waiter was very attentive. Fajitas were delicious, but the kids chicken tenders were extremely hard. Fries were great. The restaurant was empty when we got there, but very busy when we left.

For quick Mexican this is a nice place to visit - usually very salty though - but sometimes you just have to get Fajitas or something. My kids and I like the Flan's - they can be a bit "dry" but they are pretty tasty.

If you are looking for yummy Mexican at a good price, this is the place. They are generous with chips, salsa, and sour cream. I like that it has several a la carte items (because I don't care for beans or rice) that one can eat instead of a meal. Service is prompt. Ambiance, well. . . it's a cozy,... More
