While walking on Independencia street we noticed an all female Mariachi band, we listened and then followed them into El Patio where they performed for sometime. They were great and really fun. Then a clay artist came to our table where we were just drinking iced tea, and offered us a gift of a clay piece he had just made.... More

A fun place to sit and have a snack and rest your feet from shopping and wandering the beautiful streets of Tlaquepaque. The cafe de olla is delicious! And we were serenaded by an all-female mariachi band, which was so special.

We walked by this place and were drawn in by the sound of mariachis and we are glad we stopped. Beautiful and refreshing patio seating, service was fast and hospitable. We had a mar and Tierra Mocajete which was just right for two people to share. We ordered a side of guacamole which was very good. Mixed drinks were good,... More

This was my first time here but it was memorable. After wandering the area and the zocalo and shops on a busy "family-day Sunday," I went to El Patio to catch the mariachis at 3pm. As others have said, Las Morenas is a predominately female mariachi group (7 women and one man). An unexpected treat! The menu here is very... More

Have eaten at El Patio a few times. Food has always been very good & wonderful service. The music performed by the "all girl"band in the afternoon is an added bonus.

Came reluctantly with friends after not liking my meal a couple of years ago. The ambience is terrific but the food is not. We had the pork special sandwich it was not good at all. Very doughy and very little porky drinks order was wrong too.

Took my out of town friend here for dinner. The staff are super pleasant, but the meal was just mediocre. The chips on the table were chewy rather than crispy. The music was too loud. We both ordered the enchiladas--one order of pure cheese and the other order of half chicken/half cheese. They messed up the order and brought pure... More
