Our Favorite Place for Gourmet Mexican Food

We have been traveling to southern Arizona for years and the Velvet Elvis has been a stop several other times. We checked their website on 3 different occasions to verify their hours. It stated they were open 11:30 to 8:00 on the day of our visit. To our surprise and disappointment, it was CLOSED!! There was a handwritten sign in... More

Enjoyed many different original pizzas here, and while they are pricey for pizza, they are good and maybe even nutritious! Patagonia has several good eating establishments, and this is one of them.

Went to visit this very small & isolated town. Great scenic views driving towards the town. What a surprise to find... It's a long way from Tucson. Small colorful dining room a boutique pizza restaurant and yes Elvis is in the house (portrait). The food choices show quality ingredients are used. The handmade wholewheat house-made pizza dough is unique and... More

We had always hit Patagonia when Velvet Elvis was closed. This time we hit it right. Good salads and good pizzas. Many kinds. We were told they now make Mexican food on Wed. nights. They do close for a month in summer I believe.

We recently passed through Patagonia on a weekend getaway to AZ wine country in the Sonoita/Elgin region. If you've never been in this part of Arizona, you need to visit. The rolling hills, lush desert landscape, mountain vistas and grass ranch lands were beautiful. We enjoyed the charming town and boutique shops in Patagonia. The icing on the cake was... More

What a little treasure of a restaurant in the sleepy little small town of Patagonia. After a day of visiting wineries, this was a great stop. Eat on the patio if the weather is nice. Simple, funky Southwest decor, and yes, there is a velvet picture of Elvis on the wall among the Southwest paintings. The menu is creative, with... More

Always gotta stop at Velvet Elvis when in Patagonia! The creative pizza combos are delicious (and the margaritas are great too). But the most addictive thing might be the salted bread rolls they serve with the meal. The patio is a nice place to hang out and enjoy the surrounding views of Patagonia on a nice weather day, which is... More

Patagonia is a small town so few places to choose from. We were recommended this place and the service was indeed very good. Happy Hour is truly "a" happy hour...i.e., 1 hr from 4-5. Pizza toppings are generous and fresh. Pizza crust was a bit underdone. Beer will run you about 4-5 bucks / beer.

First off, I must stress the "We love cash" on the window is classless and tacky! With that said, the place is beautiful. My girlfriend and I sat outside when the sun was going down. It was beautiful underneath an ivy canopy with lights in them. It was very comfortable. It was a great night with wine, spinach salad and... More
