Foursquare Tips

  • Best garlicky calamari anywhere - period!
  • Scallops with crispy bacon bits stole the show.
  • Ask Diego for the berry sangria ....its amazing
  • worst happy hour! ends at 6 on friday
  • Diego is the best....we call him Spanish Ringo star they have great tapas....!
  • Small plates are definitely small, but pack a punch full of flavor. The lamb chops were among my favorite!
  • Vino Tuesdays at El Porron is the best 25 % off any bottle of wine all day long.
  • Garlic shrimp ! Wonderful
  • Garlic shrimp and veal meatballs are great. Skip the churro--over fried and dry (though dark chocolate is very good)
  • Happy Hour
  • Try the Gazpacho Andaluz
  • Scallops and shrimp were great
  • Sangria and garlic shrimp
  • Calamari was finger licking good / dip the entire bread basket in the sauce. Same with the scallops. Will definitely be back ASAP
  • Good food. Great service. Get the coffee flan
  • Stick to the tapas and skip the paella.
  • I'd suggest the calamari!
  • The veal meatballs and steak empanada special cannot be missed! The wine soaked french toast is out of this world! Great service and great food!!
  • Top notch variety of Sangria. Great service. Bring a fat wallet.
  • What a wonderful, fun place to go get a light lunch or dinner. All the sauces are amazing. Try the garlic shrimp or the calamari. The owner/ chef is a great guy. Try the wine soaked French toast!
