Stopped here while driving through Canyon at lunch time. Had a nice authentic Mexican meal with fresh ingredients. Looked as if the locals ate lunch here.

Clean, consistently great food, impeccable service, daily specials. This restaurant is family owned, and has never wavered from "GREAT" in the 15 years I have been eating there.

The food was much too spicy for my taste. Did not enjoy it. Both the enchilda and tamales. Tamales were not heated enough. Was not asked how I enjoyed my meal.

There are better mexican restaurants in Canyon. Some people like this place but do not care for the food. The staff is nice and will go out of their way at lunch time.

Wow always fresh- made from scratch dishes. Husband owner from Mexico -wife owner from Guatemala so unusual special dishes. Everything you could want from a small local owned cafe-- great personal service very clean and they aim to please so inform them of a special request. I highly recommend EL PATIO

Never have to wait in line! But this is one of the best Mexican food restaurants in the area. Just a 10 minute drive from south Amarillo. Enchiladas, gorditas, nachos, fried avocados - salsa . . .all excellent!
