I have gone to El Patron for their food and/or drink specials, which introduced me to their restaurant. Margaritas are strong and excellent tasting. Monday nights are half price margarita and appetizers. Easy dinner for $10 incl your margarita! General menu includes Western and Mexican specialties, so no one goes hungry. Food is pretty darn good, but I only go,... More

This place is one of my family's favorites. On Fridays they have mariachis who take requests. Their Cadillac margaritas are my favorite! They have super tasty shrimp enchiladas and hot salsa. Even my grandparents love going. Service is attentive and very friendly. Take it from a Mexican American: this place is good.

Decent Mexican food with local crowd. Watched the World Cup final on one of (feels like) 20 flat screens and celebrated Germany's 4th! That was by far the most memorable aspect of this restaurant. There is a Sunday brunch buffet, but really?

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

In July of 2012 I reviewed this restaurant and gave it an Excellent rating. Since then they have made many changes....some better than others. They have added a Sunday champagne brunch going from 10:00 to 2:00. On the plus side, they have very good chili verde, chili relenos, cold salmon, freshly made corn tortillas, and chicken enchiladas. I have usually... More

The food here is pretty much mexican standard fare. They are popular for their happy hour appetizers and half priced margaritas. The margaritas might be half priced, but the restaurant has watered down thye tequilla. Be careful, they can sneak up on you fast.

This place always has a good crowd. There is local entertainment, karaoke nights, and a full bar. The food is good and taste home made. The bar area can get a bit loud depending on what is "happening" at the time....but never boring.

The buffet had a large selection, the food was well prepared. Sstaff was not overly friendly, but not rude. We were there for the AFC playoffs and that might have been a factor in the staff's aloofness
