Decent

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.

If you are looking for an outside dining experience, look somewhere elas...There is NO patio. Go figure! The food is better at Taco Bell. The service was good, but that could be due to the fact that we were the only ones in the place.

Service was lovely bit food was greasy and bland. Buffet looked too uninviting to consider trying it. Would not recommend eating here.

Simply put... Truly authentic high quality Mexican Cuisine with authentic high quality service to match. I visit El Patio as often as possible and look forward to their amazing daily Mexican buffet. And don't be fooled by the word "buffet", this is a genuine Mexican meal that will satisfy even the most traditionalist. In addition to their top notch buffet,... More

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.

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.

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
