Enjoyed the fish tacos!

I recently went, for the first time, with a girlfriend to "The Patio". She had the fish sandwich and I ordered the fish tacos. There are three tacos in an order. They were tasty and fresh. We spent a couple of hours just chatting and nobody disturbed us. Definitely would go back again.

Always enjoy the Patio food. Most times we use the drive through but the service at the restaurant is good. Once you order you take your number and set at any table and they deliver your order to you.

The Patio is a great place to get a variety of foods including sandwiches, cheeseburger, veggie sandwich, tacos. There is something for everyone including vegans and vegetarians. Everyone is super friendly. Great family place. Especially nice for little ones. They have big tables that accommodate a lot of people. I would eat here all the time if I lived nearby.... More

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat. Great service and very good food. Nice fresh ingredients in the salad. I asked for pulled pork without the bun. When it arrived it came on several large lettuce leafs - very nice presentation - and I didn't even have to ask for the lettuce - which I really like.

The Patio is probably one of THE best fast food chains, if not the best. Their ordering system is organized, their service, prompt, restaurant big and clean, as the name implies there is a patio. They specialize in BBQ and do they ever deliver. The pulled turkey sandwich is delicious, moist and tender. Baskets of fries are very generous. Going... More

I happen to live in Lombard and every now and then have a taste for barbecue. The great thing about Patio is that they have a broad selection of barbecue dishes. I especially liked the pulled pork tacos. It was very unique and very flavorful. For those not into barbecue that night, they also have a really good selection of... More

Good food, BBQ fresh, tender and delicious! Extensive menu for everyone. Nice, contemporary seating and a little bar that's nice, too. Very fast service. Food is delivered fresh and hot. Servers very well trained. I grew up 30 miles away from Lombard where the original Patio started. After 30 years, they still always do it right! Congratulations to a place... More

My husband and I were on our way to Madison, WI from Michigan and had to make a stop in Lombard along the way. We had read the reviews for The Patio and thought we’d give it a try for lunch. We arrived around 11:30 on Friday and the parking lot was so full we were sure we were in... More

Expect to spend around $50 to feed a family of four. This place has a "can't miss" menu with something for every taste. I highly recommend the pulled pork sandwich and Patio Burgers.

The Patio is a great place to go for lunch with the various selections of food on the menu. The fries are very tasty and the salads are delicious. The food is brought to your table immediately.
