The prices are good but the food is pretty bland. The service is ok, but I think they have one waiter for the whole restaurant. Their margaritas are good though! I'd be more excited for their food if they had a little more authentic meals, a little more flavor ya know? But you can't beat the prices.
Authentic and affordable, El Patio makes a great stop for anybody wanting a cozy Mexican dinner. The chips are bottomless, and the service is light speed! You can barely get into your basket or drink before they're at you're table refilling them. Colorful furnishings adorn the restaurant, making it a pleasure to view as you talk or eat. My favorite dish would be the mole poblano, though the chicken enchiladas also hit the spot.
The only mark I have against them - not enough for a full star, mind you - is the absence of a wide variety of salsas. I generally have to add to the ones at the table from the special sauces for the spice I like!
Good homemade Mexican food. Have eaten here several times -- always tasty food, friendly staff. Many options for my vegetarian daughter, too!
This place used to have me under its charm but after my most recent visit I don't think I'd ever think twice about dining here again.
The warm chips and delicious salas were good as usual but that's about where it ends in my book.
We ordered the chicken quesadilla rellana and a nachos that had beef, chicken, and beans but I'm forgetting the name.
The quesadilla was approximately 4in, wasn't cut, and was so watery that the entire bottom part of it was soggy and disgusting. We didn't even eat it because no one wants uncut, watery, and sogged out quesadillas.
The nachos had an easy 1/2in of liquid collected on the bottom of the plate that sogged out that entire layer of chips (1/2 of the order was garbage because of this).
Because the food here is so inexpensive we didn't want to complain or send it back we simply asked for extra chips to eat the toppings of that second layer of soggy nachos with and the waiter completely flipped out and said that we can't have anymore chips and if we didn't like the food to send it back when it came out.
Needless to say, we won't ever be dining at this place anymore. Only saving grace is the chips and salsa but even that isn't enough to bring me back. Too bad we were so irritated and disgusted with everything that we walked out before I remembered to take photos of the hot mess they call Mexican food.
