El Porton has a great reputation in this town. However some are better than others. The one on Tieton is the best in overall experience.

This place just happened to be close to where we were shopping. We were not disappointed. The margaritas were on special and of course I had to take advantage. You can often judge a good Mexican restaurant on the quality of their margaritas (or maybe it is the alcohol talking, lol). We only ate there the one time and they... More

Count on a warm welcome and prompt service when you arrive. The place is warm and friendly, just small enough to be cozy. Waitstaff works hard to please. You'll get a generous and well-prepared meal for your trouble. The menu isn't extensive but includes the options you'd expect. Prices are a little higher than other Mexican restaurants in the area...

This is a must whenever I go back home. I haven't had any dish that I haven't enjoyed. Staff is very friendly and they have a drive thru window for easy take out.

My husband and I frequent El Porton de Pepe often when the weather is nice so we can eat outside in the patio. Food is just like we ate when visiting Northern Mexice so we enjoyed every bite. Serves drinks as well. Good for Take-Out too.

Several months ago our favorite Mexican restaurant in Yakima shut down when the owner retired. What followed was a month long search for a new place to go regularly. After eating at five other Mexican restaurants that were so bad that I was surprised they were still in business, I found El Porton de Pepe. El Porton de Pepe has... More
