Don't be put off by the exterior. Menu extensive. Food home cooked and delicious. Service excellent. One of the best Mexican meals I've had. Can't wait to go back.

Yummy! There is nothing like there homemade tortilla chips and spicy salsa, its great! The spinach quesadilla was really good. And unlike other places the food wasn't really greasy.

We love this popular place. The food is wonderful and fresh. The service is great. They recently remodeled the main dining room and it looks great. We have been here many times, tried a lot of items, and loved them all.

The food is pretty good overall, the prices are cheap! I must admit you do get more than what you pay for. It's got a young vibe, a lot of the college students eat here, and some of the professors. It's got a fun bar side to it that's attached, very good barstaff that can make an excellent Michelada (ask... More

If you're in the area and have a hankering for Mexican food, or even if you don't know what you want to eat, but are hungry, make a beeline to El Patio. Don't let the looks from the outside fool you; it may look a bit run down on the outside, but you're there for the food, and it's very... More

My Wife and I are not the type to visit chain restaurants. We prefer to patronize small business owners thats why we have visited El Patio on numerous occasions. Our recent trip we could not have enjoyed the service and food more. You can not beat the price for the amount of food that you get. I had the Fajitas... More

We went here with another couple on the spur of the moment. It looks a little run down-both on the outside and the inside. Nothing horrible, just a little shabby- it just could use some modernization. Chips and salsa comes with the meals. I can't eat the salsa, but the others said it was good. I love Mexican food, but...

This restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel which was very appealing after driving for 10+ hours. The food was fresh and well prepared! Chips were hot and salsa fresh and tasty! The service was very friendly and attentive! I had the quesadilla grande which was delicious but almost too much food for me. My husband had a vegetarian... More

I went to El Patio in December 2011 for the first time having just moved here and had a houseful of guests. Freezing and wanting to stay local a group of 9 went here...it was wonderful but the best was the customer service! One of our guests was in a wheelchair and upon approaching the level exterior, we peered into... More
