Went with family and service was very slow. Staff were very nice and helpful. Food was average at best. I've had better, even right here in Bristol.

This has now become one of my favorite restaurants in Bristol! Definitely going back! And I do agree with another poster, it is hard to find if you're using a GPS. If it helps anyone out, it's across from the Cookout and Walmart/Sam's.

We bumped into this cute authentic Mexican restaurant while on a business trip to the area. It looked and felt like you were in a little town in Mexico. There's a nice outside patio and the inside of the restaurant was beautifully decorated with the bright mexican colors and paintings and of course the piniatas in the ceiling were a... More

My husband and I stopped in here on 4-14-14 to have lunch. We ordered the fajitas for two. These fajitas were without a doubt some of the best fajitas we have had so far. They came out sizzling hot and the platter was enough to feed 4 people. We had them add pineapples to the fajitas and they were amazing!!!... More

El Patio is located in a strip mall, neighboring a nail salon which wafted into the restaurant. I personally really hate that smell so it didn't help my appetite. The food was pretty low end even for a mexican restaurant. Between us we got a soggy chile relleno, also soggy tamale, a chalupa that was unlike I had ever seen... More

I grew up in Dallas on Tex-Mex. This restaurant is NOT that. (In fact, since El Chico closed, formerly in Johnson City, there is no Tex-Mex in the Tri-Cities area. I have to indulge when I go back to Texas.) But this is authentic Mexican, less emphasis on the heat and sour cream, more mild and the real deal. There... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant, as we were visiting from out of town. My husband got the carnitas and was overwhelmed by how delicious they were. I got the Pollo Patio, 2 grilled chicken breasts covered in queso cheese sauce, served with rice and beans. Delicious! We also ordered the guacamole and got a huge bowl of... More

We are locals and visit El Patio on a weekly basis. The servers are consistently attentive. Chips and salsa great. My husband and I always get the chicken fajitas and share. Great value for for your money! Have also tried other menu items and loved everything. If you are looking for a Mexican restaurant in the Bristol area, give them... More

Great food and equally great service. I would eat here again if we are staying here again. The tequila spice fajitas were wonderful.
