I've been to many Mexican restaurants over the years but I always come back to El Porton. We call it our "Regal Beagle". The food is fast, hot, very consistent and very tasty. The service is great and their margaritas are my favorite by far. We've been going to El Porton restaurants for over 20 years and to this location... More

I hadn't been here in years, and thought that the food would be good tonight. As it turns out, the food was mediocre and the service was terrible. Queso dip? Average. Fajitas? Completely unoriginal: tomato, onion, green pepper, and nothing else. Not very tasty, either. They were also kind of spicy, which the menu said nothing about. And the tortilla... More

About $15 for a seafood burrito, drink, and dip - but the service is good and the portions are large. A great place if you're looking for Mexican fare.

Took the family this time as my husband had been craving Mexican. Chips and salsa stayed refilled. Drinks also. Great service. Made to order guacamole was very good. I loved my chicken chimi. Enough to take half home for lunch the next day. My son tried the chicken fajitas and commented that he thought the chicken may be a little... More

Moved here a year ago and I thought I had tried every mexican restaurant in town. I was wrong. Met friends here for drinks and dinner. Excellent margarita, chips and cheese dip! Enjoyed my chimichanga. Not fabulous but good. Finally, finally I have found a Mexican restaurant where I am excited to come back and try something else. Thank you!!!!

El Porton is my favorite Mexican restaurant to dine at. I have been a long time customer since 2004 and the food, service, and atmosphere is phenomenal. I have taken my friends, dates, and family on many occasion because every time it is an excellent experience. I recommend this place for any occasion as this is the best El Porton... More

My wife and I have dined at other El Porton locations in the Memphis area, most often in Germantown but also rarely in Cordova. This was our first visit to this location in Collierville. We were on our way out of town and needed to drive down Poplar Avenue to get to the S.R. 385 outer loop so that we... More

Are here recently after having not been for a while. They have made a lot of yummy changes to their menu and we love that they changed to the thinner chips. Margaritas are wonderful and the service was excellent.
