Fajitas of Chicken or Beef Burrito

The steak fajitas were delicious. The portion size was good.

#2. Two Enchiladas

The enchiladas here are the absolute best! Very flavorful and generous with the ingredients. I make sure my plate ends up extra clean by the time I'm done! I'm a fairly picky diner, and the enchiladas here are a sure bet and my "Go To" selection every time. My friend is an EXTREMELY PICKY diner, especially when it comes to Mexican food. He had the tamale plate the first time we visited El Portal a few months back and he said it was way better than other places. Eventually, he decided to order an enchilada a la carte on one trip, since he saw I ordered it. Now he always an enchilada on each visit as well! We've only dined there over the last few months, doing so several times. Since it's been Covid guidelines during those trips, the booths/tables have been outside at the patio area, when the local health ordinance allows (Pasadena has its own health department). The waiters always wear face masks and face shields for double protections of their customers as well as themselves. Even though eating in the patio area in the evening when it can be cool or cool outside, they set up plenty of outdoor heaters so you can dine comfortably. This place has been a jewel of a new find in recent months! Thank you for a great (and safe!) place to dine with great food!

Absolutely delicious! The cochinita pibil is very flavorful. We drive from Rancho Cucamonga to dine here. Atmosphere is great. Wonderful patio dining set up with heaters. Don't forget to valid your parking.

Enchilada

Enchiladas suizas are my favorite dish. I always go there for that. Best enchiladas I have ever tried. I always take my friends there to try them out every time I hear that they've never ate there before.

El Portal Tostada

Here's another great dish if you're on Weight Watchers and don't scarf down the entire shell or overload with dressing. The chicken breast is grilled to perfection without being dry. I really appreciate the addition of black beans, which are zero points on WW. The whole dish is artfully done and one I enjoy over and over again. I often order a Skinny margarita with it, kick back on the patio, and watch the sun go down. If you're not on WW you can eat the whole shell, pile on the dressing and it's still a very delicious (as well as healthy) meal. Fantastico!

Seafood Fajitas

I'm usually not a fan of talapia but the fish was well cooked and nice and crispy on the outside. Good amount of seafood and veggies. Well flavored overall. I would definitely get this dish again.
