One of my favorites.

Great mexican food, good service and large portions. I actually like the Nachos El Carbon at Cantina Laredo so much, that this restaurant does the best to duplicate it for me. El Patron's may be better. Always nice to eat here, never leave empty. Price is very affordable and fair for the area.

Lunch was fine - Typical, average fajitas, chips, & a mild salsa. Nothing to really get excited about, but not bad. Service was pleasant.

El Patron is the restaurant that I frequent the most in Navarre. The prices are decent and the service is usually very good. Their chips and salsa are delicious and they are good about bringing refills. The taco salad with chicken is my favorite dish to order and it's always more than enough food. Other items that I've tried are... More

The staff was great we were kind of worried they would be rude since we walked in before closing but they were awesome! Next... More

We went to El Patron Mexican Grill the other night for dinner and there was 3 couples. We all ordered something different and everyone really liked the food. We thought it was a cut above most Mexican restaurants. They have remodeled in there and it is really beautiful. I will have to compliment them on that. It used to be... More

Good food. Not great but good. Large place to eat. Although the staff is friendly they are extremely slow. Don't be in a hurry!

Literally, no service. We waited 15 minutes for someone to bring us a menu, or water, or chips and salsa, and finally just got up and left. There were only about 6 tables occupied at the time, (about 6:30 on a Thursday evening), so that is no excuse. I was a bit leary seeing so few people in the place...maybe... More

Huuuuuuge Margs for $6. I found this texmex joint pretty authentic . The salsa rocked ! Kids' meals were cheap ($3.45). Out waitress was sweet and served us quickly. Do stop in after a day on the sand . So worth it !
