Went looking for good margaritas. They weren't bad but not much alcohol and too much lime. Ordered guacamole which I had to send back as it was very watery. Seemed like it was old. The chips and salsa were good. Other food was just average. Would not visit again.

On the lookout for a new awesome Mexican restaurant, we went to El Patron hoping to strike gold. While our chips and salsa were yummy and there was no shortage of refills, our food was really only okay.

Service is high quality here with friendly people. Any menu item is delicious and reasonable in price and quantity. If you have specific menu items you get each time, expect the taste, texture, and temperature to be the same each time. Clean from the bathroom to the window sills, it is my favorite and I visit frequently.

My husband went in and placed a take out order. He was told it would be an hour wait, which we expected. He went back an hour later and they had not even started our order.

Only been here a couple of times, but it seems to be a little high end for Mexican. However, both times were GREAT! Good food, good service, good value for the dollar.

El Patron is a Mexican cantina with an extensive menu and exceptionally large portions. Prices are moderate. Service is efficient. Mango margaritas were very watery. No draft beer. Food was typical, flavorful and plentiful.
