“Yet another good Mexican restaurant in Belle Vernon...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

... who would've thought??? But as much as we enjoy Old Mexico (in the Lowes plaza across the road), Don Patron has become our new favorite.

The usual entrees are offered (tacos, enchiladas, burritos) and they are quite good, but Don Patron also has some specialties that are absolutely delicious. "Special lunch #10" really is special-- a tender chicken breast grilled with onions and served with rice, guacamole salad, and tortillas. Sounds simple, and it is, but the chicken is so flavorful and the onions sweet and smoky. Slice the chicken, pile both into one of the tortillas, spoon some guac and lettuce on top, roll, and dig in. It's wonderful. I asked for a lime wedge and the addition of fresh lime on the chicken was incredible.

The chile rellenos, the Santa Fe chicken salad, and the Pollo con Crema (chicken strips in a heavenly sour cream sauce served over rice) were great as well.

My husband and I have been there several times and we not only enjoy the good food but the wait staff is very friendly and attentive as well.

“New Favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Opened in the former China 88 location, the new Don Patron Mexican Grill is a welcome addition to the area. The location is small, but it makes up with big flavors and excellent service. We have visited this location with family and friends more than 5 times since it opened and every time we were very pleased with the different menu options.

The decor still needs some work as one wall is unfinished, but the place is clean and organized. Service is very fast, food is brought to the table hot and fresh. We were especially pleased with the staff's attention to service.

All meals start with fresh and warm nacho chips and salsa. The salsa is a bit mild and thin, but very tasty. You can also request queso cheese dipping sauce. Taco's here are served hot and are the best offered in the area. Other offering include a wide variety of burro's, burrito's, mixed grill and deserts. My favorite entree is the burrito Durango. It's a 12" tortilla stuffed with chicken, beef and shrimp mixed with assorted vegetables and rice.

All in all, you can't go wrong with the fresh authentic flavors, enormous portions, nice beverage options (including liquor) and accommodating wait staff. I highly recommend this Mexican restaurant over the "Old Mexico" option in the area.
