“I came to pick up some authentic chicken soup for my sick boyfriend. Portobanco’s was the nearest and highest reviewed for chicken soups on Yelp. It was pretty late in the evening and I was happy they were still open, so I called and put in my order. I parked in the back parking lot (lots of spots available!).”

David Duran / Google Review

Very nice Nicaraguan restaurant, I like the cleanness of their bathrooms. Is decorated very nicely with some canvas pictures from Nicaragua. Waitress are very friendly. We asked for a Mondongo, very tasty and the portion very generous. Parking was not an issue on Monday. This restaurant is not serving alcoholic beverages.
