El Portal is open again.
After several years, El Portal in downtown Phoenix is once again open for business. The restaurant is owned by Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox and her husband, Earl, and closed its doors in 2010 after receiving numerous bad heath department inspections.

The restaurant reopened two weeks ago, once again serving a menu of burritos, enchiladas, tacos, and soups.

The restaurant currently is open Monday through Friday for lunch only.

The menu includes red and green chile burritos, bean burritos, and mixed burritos, all of which are priced between $4.50 and $6. Combination plates -- which come with beans, rice, and a tortilla -- come in the red chile con carne, green chile con carne, enchilada, taco, and tostada varieties.

There's also a daily soup menu:
Monday - Caldo de Pollo
Tuesday - Cosido
Wednesday - Caldo de Queso and Caldo de Pollo
Thursday - Albondigas
Friday - Cosido

You can wash down your lunch with a selection of bottled sodas, horchata, jamaica, as well as both domestic and imported beers. The restaurant hopes to expand its hours soon.
