Ate here for lunch with my kids on a weekday while camping at nearby Elijah Clark. I wouldn't eat here again. Service was slow. They had no beans available at all. I ordered nachos with beef and beans, and it was basically chips covered with queso and hamburger. Since they didn't have beans they substituted rice on my nachos. Enchiladas... More

Delicious food, great service and such a friendly staff. Great place for family dinners. I love the "Chicken el Portel" it's absolutely to die for. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area. If you like Mexican food this this the place to go!

Lots of variety and ability to tweak the menu items is a plus at El Portal. Service is excellent. Food is always hot, tasty and served with a smile.

Even if El Portal weren't the only restaurant in town (I think...) I'd still say it was excellent! Cold beer and good food at a good price served by very nice folks! What more could you ask for?

Consistently good food and friendly staff. Pollo el Portal is a favorite.....grilled chicken covered with bacon, mushrooms, shrimp, and cheese sauce.

I love that the food is consistently good and the service is fast and friendly. We eat here quite often after the football games and other school activities. It's also one of my favorite spots to visit during the summer months for my lunch break.
