El Patio catered a recent diner with friends visiting from Canada and Australia, and the authentic Mexican meal was enjoyed by all. We enjoyed fajitas and traditional deserts. The salsa, guacamole and con queso was a hit! Highly recommend their friendly team for any catered event.

Average Mexican food for the area. They have a big buffet and I can't complain about lack of food. They have TVs but not great quality. Enough to watch a game on.

We travel to Del Rio and Mexico once or twice a month to shop and dine. We have tried several restaurants in Del Rio and have been disappointed with the Service, atmosphere, or food. FINALLY found El Patio! It was great all around.....service, atmosphere, price, and the delicious food whether buffet or menu order. We have found our fave Mexican... More

How can you go wrong eating at a Mexican restaurant and they have a buffet. I don't know how the did it but they managed to mess it up. With all the Mexican places to eat in Del Rio this is not one to try.

Food has always been ok. Now they have extremely loud music in the evenings. We will not return in the evening.

I've read the other reviews here, and some seem pretty harsh. If you're not from the area you might think it to be a bit rough, but it is what it is, and that is great mexican food! Friendly staff and the mexican atmosphere. I'm not rating much but the service and food here. That is why I come on... More

I have a large family so we rarely eat out. When we do this is one of our favorites. They have a great Mexican buffet. It is always clean, the service is great, and they keep the food fresh and replenish it often. We've tried almost every buffet in town with 5 kids it's the best way to keep people... More

I have been in Del Rio all my life, and eat out every day due to my job. This restaurant has buffet style food, and it is mediocre at best. They stay fairly busy since it is an "all you can eat" restaurant, but you can do quite a bit better in this Mexico border town.

We ate from the buffet and also ordered. It was all good and we enjoyed our meal. The staff is not as friendly as I expected, but ok.
