Porfirio's Offers Upscale Mexican Classics: Enchiladas, Taquitos, and Manchego Cheesecake

With Viva Mexico, the Magic City got a taste of authentic Mexican tacos and incomparable carnitas, but what about upscale Mexican food that still has a touch of homestyle cooking? And no, Rosa Mexicano doesn't count.

Enter Porfirio's, SoFi's newest addition from Grupo Anderson, the guys behind the popular fiesta chain Señor Frog's. The first U.S outpost of the successful Mexican restaurant opened last week, and Short Order was invited for a bite of the home-cooked but upscale Mexican fare.
