If you didn't know, El Portal, La Carreta and the Mexican Grill in Toledo are all in the same franchise and serve the same food. To me, as a person who knows what traditional Mexican food is supposed to be like, it is mediocre. Definitely geared for an Americanized public. The prices are not bad, though. And I agree with the comments about the staff. They are not rude, they are very respectful, and not overly cutesy, chatty, or syrupy in personality.
I LOVE El Portal! In a town with many Mexican restaurants, this one is the best! Their food is always delicious, fast, and hot. The staff is friendly and I love their lunch menu. You can order for pick up and it will be ready in five minutes and it's inexpensive, too. You can get a nice, big meal for five or six bucks. Definitely a Marshalltown favorite!
The food is good-Always come to my table hot but the servers are always rude not sure uf its just me or what. I have been there 4 or 5 times and every time I get the same treatment-not cool-The prices are high too-at least at la carreta if you know em they cut ya a break! at least they do for me!
