Great restaurant, have been at least 3 times on each business trip. Great tacos, tortas and so many salsas.

It's the best taco place in queretaro, but all in all, this would be the third best taco place I've been at. The best thing in the place is definitely the salsas. One thing you MUST try is the "agua de lima" and ask this drink large. You'll even order a second one, it being so good and refreshing. Last... More

Very nice place. Enjoyable traditional mexican tacos. Forget about Taco Bell and allow yourself a treat. Nice and kind staff. We were a 20 people group and they were really fast. Best thing, is quite affordable. Try the tacos with cheese tortilla.

Tacos el Pata has been our go to place for a quick and convenient meal. They have a great selection of food. The place is always very busy, but we have always been able to find a seat. The only downfall is parking, but we seem to find a spot down the side street, even though it can be a... More

I liked this place. It was nice to be able to see the tacos being made and the taste of the food was good. Pepper was not as hot as I expected but the variety of salsas was nice. I particularly like the pineapple salsa. I actually wanted to go back but maybe next time I am in Queretaro.

There was a time, when this taqueria was the best in the whole city (probably in the state), with its speed, good service, and hand made tortillas. But since then, they betted for a franchise scheme, opened several stores, and quality all-around went down. If you go to the original spot (in Constituyentes Ave) its still the best of the... More

Had lunch here and everything we had at the table was great! You can see them making the shells on a big hot plate and the smell is real Mexico!

Living in Querétaro is almost impossible not to go to El Pata due to the lack of options. This is a clean, mid-to-high priced taquería with various options to choose from. Ingredients are not of the best quality nor are the flavors. The pastor is abundant yet too greasy, the bistek is hard and poorly seasoned. They have a fancy... More

Tacos el Pata have several branches. The food is authentic so forget your nacho's, burrito's, chimichanga or any other tex-mex invention. The tacos are not the best I have tried, but the best available after going out on a weekend at night.

Plenty of salsas and great tacos. TVs all around, and a lively atmosphere. Good place to bring kids or meet up with a group, for a not so expensive meal! Very clean and fast service.
