Excellent food, served FAST!

El Patio's food is consistently delicious and always served well before you might think it would take them to make it! Love their SALSA!

We have been going to this restaurant on occasion for the last few years. It's always been delicious and fast, similar to a Coney Island experience. On our most recent visit and very last visit, the waiter brought the incorrect entree. When we told him that it was not what he ordered, he became extremely angry and raised his voice... More

If you're starving and you're in a hurry, then this is the place to go. They fly you in and push you out FAST! The prices are pretty reasonable, and you won't leave hungry. But if you are with friends you haven't seen in awhile and you want to catch up with them and have a relaxing dinner, then you... More

Geat little Mexican place. Not much on ambience but service is very fast and inexpensive. I am particularly partial to their chicken enchiladas and chili rellenos the only place I've found that doesn't bread and deep fry everything! Rellenos are always made with poblanos and never disappoint. Their lunch menu is also worth a try. I love their "Speedy Gonzales"... More

If you are looking for a good Mexican meal, many choices, and great service, this is a place you should give a try. My family and I have been to El Patio many times and have never had a bad meal. The chips and salsa are quick to arrive and service is always fast. Give them a try!

The atmosphere is just a hole in the wall but the food is always fresh, fast and delicious! I love the salsa verde, it's super authentic and they always give you tons of chips. Defiantly would recommend this place to anyone.
