I am not sure if this is the specific restaurant I ate in but this chain offers a nice taco experience in several locations around Queretaro. A local colleague took me here for lunch and I enjoyed the experience. My pork taco plate with a bottle of water was less than 100 pesos ($7.00 US). I... read more

We visited this restaurant with some friends, the place itself is ok, a bit crowded because they have many customers, they have TV so you can watch a game while you eat, the food is excellent and the price is good, I would recoment the "agua de lima" which is a breverage, over all everything we ordered was good and...

I've been coming here in my visits to the city on business since 1996 and the place really delivers, even my vegetarian daughters thought it was great!

Forget about that ridiculous Taco Bell food. And go ahead with the original one. Tacos El Pata it is really good and honest. Good food and good prices. Tacos de Pastor is the best!

I used to be a big fan of the Queretaro place and whenever I got the chance, I (used to) drive to get my taco fix!! (is two hours driving!!) So, when they advertise the opening in my home town (San Luis potosi) I was really happy until the very bad service ruined my experience!! At first, the valet parking... More

I have worked in 9 different states in Mexico and tacos are among one of my favorite foods. El Pata tacos are truly the best I have ever eaten, and nothing else even comes close. The sirloin and pork that is shaved off of the rotating "gyro" cookers is truly amazing, so much so that I had to order two... More

This is one of the best places to eat tacos in Queretaro city, you can choose from a wide menu and don't forget to have an "Agua de Horchata" Of course all the infraestructure this place has represents an increase in the tacos' price. You have to at least try it once.

I came to this Tacos el Pata restaurant due to an advice from a friend. It is close from the Queretaro Downtown. I really recommend to try it once, you are going to love the real tacos. There is also another location of Tacos el Pata in Bernardo Quintana near from a Fiesta Americana hotel crossing the boulevard Bernardo Quintana.
