It was so yummy and out of our expectations! First time to try Mexican food! My daughter loves it so much! Thxs to all!
My husband and I came here because I craving a chile relleno. El Portal never disappoints! The chile relleno was delicious and paired with authentically made rice and beans. The plates are very generous and will surely satisfy your taste buds. Pair your dinner with their Ultimate Margarita and all will be well in the world! :)
We have been coming to this place since it opened and Abel invited us as his guests. We haven't stopped coming since and genuinely believe it's the best place in Pasadena for good, authentic Yucatan cuisine! Highly recommended!
Can't go wrong with the carne asada nachos. I always ask for extra beans. Goes great with your favorite soft drink or alcoholic beverage. Hits the spot each time!
My favorite carnitas in Pasadena. Always delicious and satisfying.
Our first time to eat here, won't be our last. Wonderful is just what we wanted for dinner. The drive from Upland, Ca. was worth the trip.
This is my favorite go-to meal. Best tacos and enchiladas in Pasadena and beyond! I always get the shredded beef taco and cheese enchilada combo, with sauteed fresh vegetables instead of rice, and a half portion of beans. Ooh, I'm craving it as I write this!
I had the shrimp tostada and loved it. The shrimp were fresh ( I could tell) and the tostada was light. It was very filling. I've been here a few times and have always had a good experience. Looking forward to going again soon.
The best fajitas we've ever had!! Delicious flavor and plenty for two to share. Our favorite meal at our favorite restaurant 😊
The perfect combo of fresh and satisfying! The Vegetarian Tostada is a crispy crunchy shell lined with a layer of creamy beans and filled with tender steamed veggies all topped off with refreshing lettuce, tomato, and jicama. It's the go to option for someone who wants to feel good about what they are eating while enjoying every bite.
This was delicious! Totally hit the spot and the portion was generous, so I get to look forward to enjoying it again as leftovers. As a bonus, my food came out very quickly. Will order again!
You got to try this for sure!! Omg. It's bomb.com. I love these weekly specials at el portal. I've been here for more than 20 times now and I must say I loved each and every dish I tried. Also the nacho chips and salsa they serve before you order is absolutely amazing! You will know when you come here, so stop by and experience the ultimate Mexican food wohooo!
Pumpkin soup is the best. I hope they keep it through December...yummy!
This was the best Pumpkin Soup I've ever had, We have been back 3 times. This special soup should be added to the regular menu! The Tequila selection and portions are the best in Pasadena. I'm a fan of all the food I've had at El Portal. John
I have been enjoying the cochinita pibil here for the last 19 years! The pork is always cooked perfectly (never dry) and the pickled red onions pull everything together. I actually crave this dish and look forward to it. The customer service is always amazing; they make you feel like family.
Chili relleno was super yummy with black beans. Best black beans ever. They have the best salsa in Pasadena Service was excellent.
It's so fresh you would think they have an avocado tree on the premises!
My favorite Mexican salad! Delicious chicken, onions, cheese, and dressing. A great choice if you don't want something too heavy, but still filling!
You won't find better Panuchos any place except, maybe in the Yucatan! They are muy deliciosos!!!
Best tostada in town. The chicken is really moist and the dressing is a nice addition. Or eat it without the dressing and add salsa. Yum!
