4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Nicely varied menu. Place order at counter; they call number when ready. Self-serve bar with salsa and other sauces.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

We live in Kona and are always looking for good restaurants, especially ones that serve Mexican cuisine. Patricio's offers delicious Mexican food- a favorite is the chili rellenos, cooked to perfection! Everything we have tried we have enjoyed. The atmosphere is casual, as in most restaurants in KOna, however, we look forward to a time that the restaurant will serve on real plates and offer metal utinsels.

“Authentic Mexican Food, Awesome Tacos Al Pastor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I spend a lot of time in Mexico, so I know good Mexican food and it is here!!

The Tacos Al Pastor were fabulous, in large tacos, full of scrumptious pork and seasonings.

This is the real deal, great Mexican food in Kona.

“Horrible Food.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I don't know what is going on at this place. Some reviewers give it 5 stars and other like myself wouldn't even give it one star.

Perhaps they have two cooks or something.

We went there looking forward to some decent mexican food. We did check Tripadvisor and kept our fingers crossed that the people who didn't like the place were wrong about the food. To our disappointment we discovered that they were right. The taquitos are ghastly, the nachos a ripoff and the chile verde was inedible.

Buyer beware here.
