Very busy Father's Day lunch. Short 15 minute wait. Food was fresh and great. Service was nice. The only thing I would love to see here is more space (it's pretty cramped) and severs not carrying hot skillets overhead. If someone has an accident and drops one it could be VERY BAD!

I have eaten at all of the local Mexican restaurants. The others all have about the same menu. El Patron takes the traditional menu and adds flavorful, fresh ingredients such as avocados and pineapples on some items. The prices are reasonable, the restaurant is clean, and the staff friendly.

We were invited to attend a function at this restaurant. The food was very delicious and the staff worked hard to attend to everyone. If we lived in the area, this would be my go to for Mexican food!

What more can I say about excellent food and service? I was in Salisbury for business and a hotel customer service representative recommended this restaurant. It was walking distance from the Marriot Courtyard Hotel. If you like hot sauce, ask for the made-in-house medium and hot sauces. They both pack some heat and are very flavorful. Prices are reasonable and... More

Wife and I stopped into this restaurant that was suggest to us by some locals. Great atmosphere, attentive wait staff and fun place to be. We had the chimichanga and I had a steak fajita. Both rate it a solid 8, Again wait staff (Chris in particular) made it an enjoyable night.

Service was great did not wait long for the food.Best time to come is during lunch. They give you large portions enough for another meal. Worth every penny.

Amazing food, service and, best of all, superfresh homemade guacamole! Chicken fajitas were perfect balanced, we also ordered Taco de la calle... Spectacular! This place is now one of my favorite!
