Something is definitely wrong with the water in the is restaurant. Tastes like chemicals. Food is great. There was no paper towel to dry hands with in the rest room.

Went to El Porton for takeout dessert. Was asked to go to the bar to place order. Waited for 15 minutes and was totally ignored by staff. Left without placing an order. Crap service, don't recommend.

No wait for tables & the chicken/tortillas with rojo sauce was great. Great service getting a drink & chips & salsa- although I've never waited that long for my food to arrive. After I finished I waited at least 15 mins for a bill. Then...More

I don't normally eat Mexican food, but I'm so glad I did. The food was excellent. The service was as well. I was not disappointed.
