The food was decent, the service was nice. Nothing to write home about, but average prices and good enough for the area's mexican food options.

My husband and I enjoy Mexican from time to time. Today, we decided to try El Patio for the first time. When I pulled up to meet him, my first impression was not a good one. There were weeds along the walk, and the main...More

Being from Texas, we are generally disappointed with Mexican food out of state. The food was OK, but need a bit more spices. It was just average Ho Hum. But it was the best food we have had in the Branson area.

We went with another couple and we all had good service. Even though they were kind of busy the service was fast. We all had something different and it was all good. We will return.

Hi, Sorry I just got the e-mail. I went to lunch with my kids. I do not know the happy hour specials or hours. But there is a bar there with a big screen.

I actually asked them if they had any specials in the evenings, or for locals and they said no. Now that may have changed, but I am not going back there to find out. I suggest you call them.
