We previously posted a review of Porfirio’s Mexican Restaurant in Barboursville back in July 2008 – one of my favorite places to eat before Ron sold the Country House. After he moved to the Valley, it wasn’t as geographically convenient for us to eat at Porfirio’s therefore our frequency declined. Not long after that, Porfirio’s closed their doors for remodeling. During a visit to Porfirio’s Dos in Huntington during the month of October, we heard rumors that ownership my be changing on our old favorite. We wondered if they would actually re-open, and if so…would our old friends still be there?
The curiosity got the better of me Friday night. The family unit decided on a drink and a snack at the re-opened restaurant, now with a sign in the parking lot announcing “Three Amigos”.
The kids were campaigning for Mexican food (AGAIN) and that’s what we thought we were getting when we stopped at a new place to all of us. But we got so much more than just good burritos. We got a great story.
We weren’t even sure what the name of the place was. We noted the sign outside said “Ricardos” but Porfirios Dos was on the side of the building. Located across 29th Street from the Wal Mart in Huntington, we learned that Porfirios Dos is owned and operated by the ex-wife of the owner and operator of Porfirios, previously reviewed by Fork You. Really.

Porfirio’s Mexican Restaurant – Barboursville, WV
You know how some restaurants barely acknowledge your existence and their beer is way overpriced? And how you feel like you got ripped off when you leave and wonder why you ever gave them another chance ‘cause you didn’t like it last time, either???
Porfirio’s is NOT one of those restaurants.
If there is one thing you can hang your hat on, it’s that I love Mexican food. I wear Ron out on the stuff. I could eat it every day. I don’t think I have ever met a Mexican Restaurant that I did not like. (I know I smacked Cozumel on the wrist for their taco salad, but I swear their other food is great.) Well, Ron has only himself to blame for getting me hooked on Porfirio’s.
