Good upscale mexican food. Nice menu selection, as well as drink selection. Attentive wait staff. We always enjoy our meal @ El Patron.

Love the atmosphere, too many favorite entrees to name! Guacamole is delicious. Homemade right at your table! Cheese dips are also unique!

A friend took me to dinner there and the food was quite good. Having taught in Mexico I have learned what is really good --and what isn't! El Patron has very good food. and friendly staff.

The workers were nice but the food was horrible. The menu didn't have a large selection but I chose a chicken and shrimp plate. The shrimp still had the peeling on them! It was not even close to the value of what I was paying. I won't be back here.

We loved the food, which was fresh and delicious! Server was quick to bring refills on chips and salsa, and the drinks were great. We each loved our dishes, and there was plenty to share as well. Our entire family (including five-year old twins) enjoyed the food and ambiance.

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!
