My family and I had a great meal here. The food was delicious: well prepared, very fresh tasting, authentic Mexican food. Also, great margaritas! The staff was very welcoming and friendly. We'll come again.

My wife and I always seem to like the same places, perhaps that's what happens after more than 50 years together. We agree that El Patron is a standard, noisy, Mexican restaurant, with nothing that really stands out from the rest of them. We went...More

We made this a Friday night regular but I unfortunately drew a 'short straw' three-weeks in a row (back in Jan/Feb 2017) and received cold meals. Each time this happened, we always paid full-price for our meal but believed the next visit would be better....More

Many Mexican restaurants to choose from in the greater KC area and El Patron is actually one of our favorite places to stopover for drinks after a late lunch or early dinner. Don't get me wrong, we have eaten here more than a few times...More

We dined here recently for an early dinner midweek so it was not busy at all. That being said, sometimes when we do that at other places the food/service is not the best. I'm glad to say this was not the case at El Patron....More

We enjoyed our visit with good mexican food. The location is unique, and we walked up a steep set of stairs to our table! The tables are extremely close together, so don't try to have a private conversation here. The service was excellent.

Parking is a Lil adventurous but worth the hassle. Food was good and the margarita even better! Service was very good and relatively quick. Another big plus was the guac!! Highly reccommend it:)
