I remember when this restaurant used to be one of the best in Roswell. I've recently visited El Porton for lunch, the salsa was red and had no taste, it was spicy and lots of tomato... we ordered a Fajita Nachos, when the Nachos came it was a very small portion on a large plate, it was drowning in a pool of thinned-out melted cheese... we counted 6 small stripes of steak, one table spoon of sour cream, one table spoon of beans and lots of lettuce and hardly any chips, so we had to order more chips. The steak was tender, but not seasoned, we've been eating Nachos all over Georgia but by far this was the WORST NACHOS we ever had... I wonder if Gordon Ramsey can come and help this restaurant

Pros: Large covered patio for outdoor dining

Cons: average mexican food

I won't go here anymore because they served me food that was not acceptable. When I asked to speak wiht the manager, he told me that if I didn't like what they served me, I was welcome to order something else on the menu. So I ordered something else but when I went to check-out, they charged me for both meals. I again asked for the manager and he insisted I pay for both meals even though they took back the first non-edible meal. He would not budge and made me pay for 3 dinners even though I only ate one and my wife ate one. I highly recommend you avoid this place

El Porton is a better than average Mexican restaurant. Sometimes there is a wait on Friday night, but it is worth it. Service is usually quick and the prices can't be beat.

To Whom who loves GREAT MEXICAN DINNERS,

I am a local Roswell guy with a family and Business owner. I have been going to El Porton for Many years (1995?), They moved from the Roswell shopping center close to Mazzy's bar and Grill. They have been a constant Mexican place for freinds and family to have lunch with on Sundays. I have seen the same servers there for many years. I have gone to other local mexican places and wasn't near as satisfied with the food or service. I have Hired them to Cater at least 6 parties at my home and business and have no complaints.
I Recommend El Porton to anyone.
Ask for their famous Burrito Salsa for your chips prior to your meal.... I also enjoy their Surf Dip for the actual meal with their chips. can't wait til my next visit

Another Satisfied Customer,

Enjoy!!!

The food here tastes like it came from the freezer and was thrown into a microwave. It is far below average, almost to the point of being unpalatable. Several of my friends got indigestion after eating at El Porton. I will never go to this place again.

My wife and I recently had dinner here. After we tasted the refried beans we immediately knew that they were bad. We told the waitress and she said that other customers had complained also. She smelled them and said that they smelled like bleach. I asked to see the manager but he never came to our table.

the ten minute lunch is great. lots of food for the money but not always consistent. still consider it a good place to take a large group. the staff is very accomodating.

I tried El Porton for the first time last night, and was pleasantly surprised by their expansive menu. They offer a variety of specialty dishes that aren't typically found at run-of-the-mill "number 12 combo" Mexican restaurants. I had the shrimp chimichanga, and while it was a tiny bit greasy, the flavor was good and it was refreshing to be able to order something I'd never seen on a menu elsewhere. Overall, it was good. Not the very best I've had in Atlanta, perhaps, but tasty enough that I'd put it in my top 5 for Mexican restaurants. I'll definitely go back.

For me, this restaurant is very close to where I live, so it's very convenient. It's a great little restaurant, with a nice, clean space and nice furnishings. The prices are good for the quality of the food you get, which is great! The waiters are prompt in bringing out your food once it's ready. Just typing this is making me hungry for one of their tamales! Overall a great restaurant to eat at with friends or family.

PROS: Excellent food, service, and prices
CONS: Often very crowded at night.

Where else can you go in order, eat and pay in under 20 minutes for 6 bucks with tip? This place has been alive and kicking for years for a reason. Roswell and Alpharetta working class make this restaurant what it is during the day: A cheap alternative to fast food.

Most lunch items are under 6 bucks and come with free chips and salsa (it will arrive at the table when you do). The service is ok and varies on who you get and how much english they speak. The food is a lot better then the price suggests and the atmosphere is too.

This is a must for people in the area for lunch. Beat the rush and get there at 11:30, you wont be disappointed.

We ate at El Porton and had a horriable experience. The server was obviously annoyed with us when the dinner came out cold for most of us and two of us got things we NEVER ordered. When he brought back the items that we DID order he threw them on the table and walked away. We tried to contact a manager but they would not get one for us. Instead a waiter pretended to be a manager until we caugh his bluff! What kind of service is that?

Though some may still pine for the old days when El Porton was in the shopping center several miles down the street, this location serves up the quality Americanized Mexican food you want to come with your chips and queso. This is a step above the average too greasy, too cheesy Mexican joint. The wait staff is nice, and I've never been disappointed with the food here. And the previous reviewer is right, the sopa de pollo is excellent.

If you're looking for a combination of your favorite south-of-the-border dishes, you're likely to find it on one of the plates unimaginatively named special lunch no. 1, special lunch no. 2, etc. Vegetarians can find half-a-dozen…
