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

Everything looks like Mexican for the decor. Very good waiters and fast service. Very good and well seasoned food.

This is my go to Mexican restaurant when I'm visiting. Their cheese dip is amazing, they have good margaritas, and the food is yummy. I recommend the flautas and chimichanga. I don't really recommend the lunch buffet, it needs some work.

Four of us ate here this week. Food was good. Service was good, however I ordered the number one lunch and was served and charged for the combination number one. We all liked the beef enchiladas and queso and salsa, but I wish I had gotten the meal I ordered so that I could have tasted the guacamole salad. Margaritas... More

I went with two colleagues and we all ordered from the set lunch menu. I had numero seis and it tasted excellent. I've paid three times as much for mexican food tasting half as good. Portions were what was needed and flavor was rich and the chicken I had was succulent. My colleagues also raved a out theirs. I will... More

We were recommended to El Patio after hearing that Chick and Millies Blue Moon restaurant (an old favorite when we lived in PC 20 years ago) had declined in quality and service over the years. We were not disappointed with El Patio- Good service and great food.

Trekked to Ponca City on Labor Day in search of Mexican food at the airport (closed) or famous BBQ (closed). Lucky for us El Patio was open. We skipped the buffet and ordered from the extensive menu. The salsa was very good, with just the right amount of bite. The beer mugs were frosted and rimmed with a bit of... More
