I travel with my job and I try a different Mexican restaurant everywhere that I travel. El Patron is the best from Chicago to Miami, and everywhere in between. I live about 45 minutes away and drive there often for dinner. Excellent menu, superb service.

We had another successful family birthday dinner at El Patron. The food is always excellent and we are welcomed like family. After living in San Diego for many years, it is nice to have a place to get food with authentic Mexican flavor. We will be back .....

This is the best and the only Mexican restaurant my family goes to! They put so much effort into delivering the best service and certainly the most delicious food. Everyone is very nice and the manager Juan is so down to earth and always concerned that everything is just how you asked for it. Overall, this is the best place... More

First time eating here and the service was amazing. Our waitress was great and very friendly. The food was amazing as well. The guacamole was outstanding and they made it at the table fresh. We will definitely be back!

Visited this place for a quick delicious dinner, and I got o.k. enchiladas. This is coming from a Mexican food fanatic from Texas. The restaurant seemed a bit awkward. I sat down at my table and heard .... nothing... no music... just the clinking of forks and knives and other conversation. This was different. The chips were o.k.... They tasted... More
