Ate at this very popular Mexican place while on a golf trip. Good food, very quick, if slightly impersonal, service, fairly priced. Big tequila collection, which, looking around the room at the grog-sized margaritas that were being consumed, might be the main attraction of the place. If you're in the area and want some basic Mexican, I'd recommend it.

I take my mom here for lunch and occasionally take my grown son and come here for date night with my spouse. All trips here have been excellent. Service was excellent and haven't had a bad dish come out of that kitchen. This is my go to restaurant for Mexican. The rest of the restaurants in town taste the same... More

We arrived at 4:30 on a Tuesday (just missed Happy Hour). There was no one to greet us at the door. We waited about 3 minutes to be seated. Tuesday's special was 'buy one combo A-L, get one for $3.99' (about half price). Our young children, who don't care for Mexican food, ordered a hotdog and a cheeseburger from the... More

Food and service were both excellent. Plan to go back and try the mole. I do wish the Margarita mix was a little less sweet. Prices are very reasonable.

This is head and shoulders above the other mexican restaurants in town. I'd recommend to anyone, the service is outstanding, the food is great, a large menus selection, and AWESOME drink specials. Can't miss out on this place, right across from Tiger Town!

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.
