I love Mexican food, and was a little worried when I moved to Bloomington...I grew up around a lot of Mexicans and was used to ""real"" Mexican food...I wasn't sure if there'd be anything good around here. At first, there really wasn't, but when El Porton opened up I had real reason for celebration. Everything I've had at El Porton has been wonderful. My favorite thing is the chicken enchiladas with red sauce--I don't know how they make that sauce but it is really rich and tasty--if they'd sell it by the jar, I would totally buy it. The dinner comes with vegetables and sour cream and rice and beans--I always swear I'm going to just eat half and save the leftovers for a separate meal, but I can never stop myself from eating the whole thing. The other things I've really enjoyed there are all of their different kinds of tacos, their bistec dishes, and their posole. The service is pleasant and efficient, and the restaurant is bright and cheerfully decorated.

If you?re looking for authentic Mexican food, El Porton is the place to go. In the past when I wanted traditional Mexican food I would take a trip to the Pilsen neighborhood in Chicago?s lower west side. But after discovering El Porton my cravings have been satisfied. The menu is very extensive with a variety of authentic dishes, which come in generous portions at a very reasonable price. Service is typically good, the wait staff is quick and effecient. Atmosphere is low key and simple. All in all if your looking for a good, quick, authentic Mexican meal, you should check it out.

Well, the actual restaurant is not much, but the food is fantastic. Most Mexican restaurants heap their food with grase and cheese, but here everything is fresh, and actually tastes like traditional Mexican fare. The tacos are fantastic, as are the enchiladas. The platters are huge, and you'll leave with a very full belly.
