It's a Mexican restaurant with good food and yummy salsa. Not the best I've, but still really good! I'll go back if I'm in the area again.

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.
