Good eats close to the farigrounds.

Great place for a quick, tasty, bite to eat. Service is always good and the food is good. I highly recommend the carnitas nachos.

I love the carnitas plate with flower tortillas and have enjoyed them since the place first opened. However, last Wednesday, I ordered a Taco salad for $7 and I think I found a new taste treat! This place always has a line in the drive-through so I walk in to place my order. During the Yolo County Fair in mid-August... More

Ordered a super burrito. Then some lady came up to tell cashier that she didn't get rice on her order. The cashier then told the lady they didn't have rice. Cashier could of told me that or tell me before hand that there's no rice.

The food is decent but its really hit and miss...sometimes no flaws and everything seems fresh/tasty and then other times when they are not on top of things...foods not up to par, orders are wrong or missing, perhaps they used...

We did takeout at El Patio. My son in law was here from the East coast a few months back. He had burritos in the am and liked them. He said they were bug and tasty. We went at night for dinner. We felt the quesadilla we had was greasy. The vegetables in the tacos weren't very fresh. The portions... More

I personally think this place has the best tasting Mexican food in Woodland. I have tried the tacos, burritos, chimichanga and rolled tacos and have no complaints. The food is excellent and the service is great.

Great burritos, excellent service. What's not to love about a big dish of beans, beef, and all the extras. The restaurant has a variety of different dishes to choose from.

The food is very good, but the drive through crowd is packed. Not sure if it is the fact you don't have to get out of your car, but they are really busy. Frankly, some of the taco trucks around town have better food, but you'll have to get out of your car to order, lol. One advantage to El... More

HAVE AGAIN: Carnitas Chile Rojo is outstanding, delicious and so flavorful. Lots of meat, too. Reasonably good drive-through.

Breakfast burritos are great and we like the salsa that goes with them! We go here often and I like the chicken enchiladas!
