The service here is great and has the best Guacamole in all of Little Rock. It is always nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy a fresh guac that is made at the table with the perfect warm and crisp chips

My family and I use this restaurant several times a year for many years. It is simply the best Mexican place in Little Rock - their service, food and drinks are all outstanding. Try their margaritas!

We are here for a late lunch after shopping. The combo fajitas, chimichanga and fajita quesadillas were all really good. I got a side of tamales that may be the best I've ever had. I highly recommend this spot. It may be a little tight for groups larger than 8. Full bar and service was very good.

Our table arrangement was less than desirable but the company and conversation was excellent. Food was good with the exception of the Molcajete. It was terrible and I don't recommend it. The guacamole was delicious but the... More

We went as a group for lunch on a Saturday. Server did well keeping us in chips and drinks. Food arrived and it was tasty. One of our party didn't get what he ordered and the server tried to talk him into keeping it. He relented and they brought the correct meal about ten minutes later

An hour for lunch at a restaurant such as this is ridiculous. We only had one hour to have lunch as we were in a training and had a specific time to be back. We were late returning to our meeting after lunch because lunch at El Porton took way too long! So, if you have limited time, tell your... More
