The cheese dip was the best part of the meal. While nothing was bad, nothing was great either. Average all the way.

El Patron is a favorite for my wife & I. Flavorful authentic tasting Mexican dishes that please the zesty or mild pallet. There is a very wide selection of entrees on the menu, but the chicken fajitas are our favs. They are inexpensive and portions are not stingy. We always take a box home. The mixed drinks, like in most... More

The steak nachos were excellent! El Patron has good food at an affordable price. Our family of 4 ate lunch for less than $40 including the tip.

To be quick, the lunch menu is great. Above average for this type of place. The $5.00 lunch margaritas are excellent!

My family and I came here because of the reviews. The staff were attentive and that is why I gave the rating as above. The food was very average. I love Mexican, and eat it whenever I can. I don't think the food measured up to the high reviews that it has been given. I had a vegetarian plate. The... More

This was our first time eating here and we will definitely go back! I ordered a chicken burrito and my husband ordered chicken nachos. Both were great. Very well prepared and seasoned well. The service was good and our food came out quickly. They also had the best sweet tea! The food was reasonably priced and a great value considering... More

This is my new favorite Mexican Restaurant. I get the steak burrito covered in cheese dip every time. The steak is tender and very flavorful. Their margarita's are good too. Be forewarned though: they only come in medium and large glasses. And, they have lots of specials. (Wednesday night is the margarita special).
