My wife and I were tired of chicken and turkey left overs. Enough was enough! And, burgers etc. that all come in a bag at the drive thru had worn very thin, too. So, we decided on a guaranteed good standby restaurant just a few miles away...El Patio! And, we weren't disappointed! Some patrons use their carry-out menu's but we've... More

Great atmosphere. Great food. Drinks are wonderful. Staff is very friendly. Patio is nice. Music is a little loud. Acoustics is bad. All voices echo everywhere.

Wow, really good food with a large size portions! Interior is older and pretty simple, The waiters are first class service in a diner atmosphere. So great service, reasonable prices safe bet for lunch or dinner. They also have weekly lunch specials
