Waiter was slow and there was only three guests. The food was just average food, nothing special but the atmosphere is awesome.

The staff are all fantastic, the atmosphere is perfect, whether dining inside or on their patio, and the food is the best in Ponca City. The only downside is their parking lot is a little tight for larger suv's and trucks.

For all the years, over 10, I've been visiting Ponca City you'd think I'd eaten at El Patio before. I wish I had. As part of a family of 6, including a grandbaby, it was a good chance to see how well families would be embraced. The staff were quick and gracious including after I mentioned to our waiter that...

Fun little restaurant in Ponca. The food was great the atmosphere was fun. I loved the little bowls for salsa so each person had their own bowl. I would definitely come back.

Although all El Patio food is not on par with great Texas or Southern California Mexican restaurants, it is excellent. We have been to this restaurant many times and I believe it has great atmosphere, prompt, friendly service and is always clean. Food is the best Mexican I've had in Ponca and the Texas/Cadillac margaritas have no equal. (I have... More

Really nice restaurant centrally located. Wonderful menu, and daiquiris a speciality. Catered for lactose and gluten intolerant with no fuss. Beautiful food, possibly too large a serving and great value. Plenty of parking.

First off our waiter acted like he didn't want to be there and seemed to be annoyed with us the whole time, one of the worst margaritas I've ever had, food was bland (not even a hint of spice), my chicken enchiladas barely had any sauce on them so they were quite dry, my sister got the avocado chicken enchiladas...

I always end up here when coming home to visit. The food is good and reasonable, the cheese dip is legit, and it is a local hotspot for evening drinks. They have giant drinks and a nice patio. I have enjoyed every dish so far, and the service is always good.

The margaritas here are pretty tasty! But, I've tried the food several times and have never been all that impressed. The salsa is so-so, but the chips are pretty tasteless and cold. The service isn't the best either. I was there last night for drinks, and decided that I was going to order a lil something to munch on because... More

The hardest place to get a seat in town. Very good restaurant especially the Mexican food lovers. They have a decent menu for the non Mexican lovers also. Portions are huge and cost is low. They have a lunch buffet that is hard to beat. Kids are plentiful here and seem to love the place. Try it you will like... More
