Took my wife and adult son to lunch at this well established Mexican eatery. Clean, mostly deserted at 12:15 p.m. Only three other tables seated while we were there during lunch hours.

Wife had the lunch special which was better than my enchiladas rancheras which was not carefully prepared resulting in dry, overcooked meat chunks, somewhat hard cheese enchiladas, and just so so salad.

My son had the best if the lot with the tortilla soup. A healthy looking, very tasty bowl of inviting rich soup filled with good things.

The quality just wasn't there for my wife and I. Acceptable, but not great. As I said before, the place was deserted as a ghost town. That has to say something.

Maybe try somewhere else next time.

The restaurant is dingy and dirty. After I had looked at the menu I noticed that my hands smelled awful. I went to the restroom which was also dirty and washed my hands. I had to ask for clean utensils and then I had to clean the new ones that were brought to me. The food was not very good, maybe it was just that I was put off by the lack of cleanliness that I saw all around the restaurant. I don't know why we stayed should have gone somewhere else. We will never go back.

We eat Mexican food all the time and have enjoyed El Porton for years. The service is great and all of the dishes on the menu are good.

At El Porton, you get just what you expect from a typical, family run Mexican restaurant. The atmosphere is not impressive, the food tastes the same as every other Mexican joint in the area, the service is lightning fast and the price is low. You will not leave thrilled or excited by the experience. However, you will be full and you will be in and out quickly.
