The NCTC Tourism & Promotions Committee is proud to announce El Portal Mexican Restaurant as the next recipient of the Golden Apple Award for exemplary customer service.  The NCTC presented the restaurant with the award on February 11th.

Following are some statements from the nomination that was submitted: You cannot talk about El Portal without hearing people respond that they love it.  The atmosphere is great, the food is consistently wonderful, and the hospitality always makes you feel welcome.  When deciding where to go for a quick lunch or an evening meal, there is one place that is always at the top of the list.  Why?  There are always smiles to greet you, the efficiency and calmness of the staff—even when the line is out the door, the amazing consistency of the food, the friendliness which exudes a “family” and “fun” atmosphere, and the fact that this all adds up to extremely good service.
