  • Good food, good live music, and a great atmosphere. Real plantitas at every table. The owner Abel is a sweetheart too.
  • The Yucatan Trio was filling but underwhelming in flavor. If you aren't sure what to try though, it is a good sampler of their Yucatan inspired cuisine.
  • I was here for a friend's wedding reception. Food was excellent, as were the margaritas!
  • Get the Yucatn trio
  • I liked the food and the Margaritas. Friendly service.
  • Enchiladas de mole was decent. The margarita tasted watered down and the chips needed salt.
  • If the seasonal gazpacho is available, have it, as it is wonderful.
  • Love this place that specializes in Yucatn style Mexican food.
  • Good mole and margaritas
  • El Portal is one of those places where everything is good. Their margaritas are stupendous. For outstanding flavor, try the lomo saltado. Chips and salsa are top notch. Also, the mariachis rock.
  • Not bad, but you can get better food and less sloppy service elsewhere.
  • Great Mexican food and service!
  • Shrimp tostada is excellent, Pannucho's are the bomb mchaca con Huevos are my husbands favorite. Great margarita, lovely staff and family owned and run.
  • Love the margaritas, the shrimp enchiladas and the outdoor setting. Best Mexican food in Pasadena.
  • The michaladas are the best
  • Loved it , thanks Mr. Matthews for taking me there.
  • Friendly, delicious and festive. Great prices and the best Steak Picado I've ever found in L.A. Varied menu and prompt service make this a must for Mexican cuisine.
  • Chicken fajitas!!!
  • Great tamale and taco combination
  • Try the Puc Chuc. Very tasty
