We've eaten at El Porton for years and for a long time you couldn't go wrong there - good food, generous portions, reasonable prices and good service. Then a few years ago the place got sold to new owners & the change is palpable. The servers are unfamiliar and unhappy - the food erratic - and the old congenial atmosphere is faded away. On a good night, they still have the best Carne Asada anywhere - and the Aroz con Pollo is huge & excellent if the vegetables aren't overcooked ( it's best at lunch - I think they make a giant kettle & it sits all day). There are better Mexican Restaurants in Yakima & I miss the good old days of El Porton...

Everytime I visit Yakima I ask the locals where to eat the best Mexican food. The answer is always El Porton. This says a lot! The food is indeed good, the servers friendly and efficient. I recommend this restaurant!

This was the worst mexican food Ive had in a long time. I left feeling sick from the oil, cheese and probably lard in the meal. But this is somewhat typical for mexican american cuisine.

Lucy at El Porton is the BEST server we have come across in years! We travel the NW frequently, being sorely disappointed across the board Lucy has been a breath of fresh air. Well done Lucy! If only the rest of the eating establishments had half the customer service skills you have, eating out would always be a pleasure.
PS EL Porton, Lucy should be the one to train all new staff, the newbies are not always up to snuff and we have been greatly disappointed from time to time with them.
