From Menudo to scrambled eggs

They have Everything. From Menudo to scrambled eggs, you can have all mexican food here. And, what´s better, they are very careful that all the food is clean, safe and fresh. Coffee is excellent (it is mixed with cinnamon). Is a traditional restaurant located in downtown Tlaquepaque. If you are... read more

Service was terrible. Made a lot of mistakes and didn't bring the food at same time. I asked for some food and get other instead.

We were drawn in by the music, but once inside it was sooo loud that the meal became uncomfortable. Food and drink was OK but I think I could have found someplace a little quieter.

I had a delicious chicken breast with tamarind sauce that I have never seen on a Mexican restaurant menu. A clay artisan entertained the kids with his creations while the adults enjoyed the mariachi.

The food and the service were excellent. If you're on vacation and in the area, you must try this restaurant. Try the jicama tacos. They are to die for. There is a play area for children in the back of the restaurant to keep them entertained.

The service was great and the food very tasty, I had carnitas and my wife had Chile Relleno both were very good. The best surprise was that not only the patio... More

What a great way to spend an afternoon relaxing, from the minute we entered they treated us like kings. They have great food and the service was on the money. They had traditional dancers and mariachi's entertain the whole place with a beautiful show. The tequila selection was excellent and the drinks were made the right way.

I had a late lunch at El Patio. I sat in the courtyard, unbeknownst to me, I chose a table right in the middle of the upcoming performance. I drank my Modelo surrounded by a fabulous female Mariachi band who were accompanied by 4 dancers. The mood was joyous and happy, with the performers and most of the crowd smiling... More
