good food

Two of us shared the pollo Vera Cruz. The nicely grilled chicken came with rice, sauteed vegetables, and pickled vegetables (no beans). Food and service were excellent. We found the place to be quite comfortable.

Take the time to drive just a little further to find this gem that the locals use. It is just before the second four-way stop as you leave Wasco heading south towards Shafter on SR 43. The salsa is the freshest ever, the chips are dry and not oily. Try the chili relleno, or the enchiladas. Tasty, tasty !!

We stopped in Wasco for the night and had checked out reviews on Tripadvisor for area restaurants. This one seemed the best, and since Denny's (next to our hotel) seemed like the only other option, we decided to give El Patio a try.

Hotel recommended and it was very good. I had a chili relleno and it had a good smoky flavor. I saw some of the fish dishes and they look good.

Taco Bell or SaveMart has tastier food! Even eating at Denny's has better mexican food! Give it a try if you want to waste your time!

We stay in Wasco every time we visit our daughter in NoCal. Tired of Dennys we tried El Patio and were very pleasantly surprised. Very fresh vegetables and the best enchilada we have ever eaten. It is a little further to drive but well worth the effort after a long journey.

We made an unexpected stop in Wasco due to traffic problems on I5. The hotel clerk told us that El Patio had the best Mexican food in the area. It is located down a side street and a good distance from the main highway but worth a few minutes travel. The staff were welcoming and the selection of food extensive.... More
