“Viva El Patron!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Madison, WI may be famous for its variety of restaurants, but Sun Prairie, just 3 or 4 miles away from Madison's East Side, has for many years been a vacuum when it comes to good food. The past several years, that has been changing. In a midwestern world where good Mexican food is far too scarce, El Patron fills a much needed gap.

Our family has eaten there a number of times (it's one of our favorites), and the food is always hot and tasty, the wait staff is friendly and attentive and the wait for our food has never been too long. The atmosphere is informal - just what our family likes and needs, and the alcoholic beverages are terrific, too. We always have a great time there, and come home happily stuffed. The prices are reasonable, too, to top it all off. Sun Prairie may not be one of Wisconsin's most talked about destinations (the Dells we're not), but if you gotta get off the 151 onto Main Street and spend a while, you can't miss if you eat at El Patron!
