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.

El Patron is a nice place to eat with good tasting Mexican dishes! I enjoy the tacos, enchiladas and tamales.

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.

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
