El Patio serves up wonderful dishes with chicken! All entrees are fresh, with chunky white meat chicken. Their salsa is very good and has a lot of cilantro in it. This is also the fastest service in a restaurant we have ever had! The waiters will be right by your side when you first sit down, and keep coming back... More

The food is okay but it seems every time I go there, I end up with some kind of stomach problem. They are not very friendly. Kind of abrupt. Their service is very fast if you are in a hurry.

One of my favorites, service is always quick and your pop is constantly refilled. Prices are reasonable. Lots of food choices and the flan is yummy. Inside is nothing special but I like it and go often.

My husband and I go here frequently and enjoy the food, especially the complimentary chips. Service is always super fast and refills are usually done quickly.

I went on a Monday night. It was clean and half full. Chips and slasa were brought right away. The service here is very fast. My water was never empty. Great service. The food was very good. I order the diner special and it was 2 plates of food, all very good.

Great all around restaurant, my only issue is they don't have alcohol, this awesome food deserves to have a beer to wash it down with!

Food is consistently very good and ample in amount. Service is very quick - sometimes it seems like the food arrived before we even ordered. Fresh tortilla chips and salsa make a great appetizer. We do take out here as well. We sometimes phone in the order ahead and to pick it up, but other times the service is so... More
