About us

The Porter family is blessed to own and operate two of Fallbrook’s finest restaurants; El Jardin Mexican restaurant for the past 8 years and the Garden Center Café & Grill for 20 years. Bill Porter's 50 years of experience in both corporate restaurants and as a proprietor is invaluable. The family interest and enthusiasm for good food and friends have continual support from our fellow Fallbrookians.

Their son Jon moved from Arizona to take on the new venture of El Jardin. He has always been involved in the restaurant business and has a passion for creating fabulous food! His enthusiasm and sense of humor brings life and laughter to the restaurant. He often comments about the incredible support of this community and the friendships he has cultivated through his patrons.
