We were here, on a Saturday night for dinner, with a party of 6. The chips and salsa got us off to a good start. The menu is quite extensive, everyone ordered something different, and there were no complaints! The shrimp cocktail grande was truly a meal. The steak, quesadillas, and shrimp dishes were all enjoyed. The margaritas were great!... More

Traditional Mexica fare. You won't leave hungry. Chips and salsa to start. Dos Equis on tap. She had carnitas and I had the quesadilla Grande. Pleasant atmosphere; professional and diligent service.

$10 all you can eat buffet on Sundays is well worth it. Very good complimentary salsa and chips brought to your table. Pleasant staff. I go here when I have a taste for Mexican food

Our food was great, although the wait was a bit long which was to be expected. So we were ok with that. However there was a table of four ladies behind us who were belligerently drunk, two mothers and two daughters. They were yelling at people and cursing extremely loud. Their waitress never cut them off they order pitcher after... More

Thank you for coming to El Patio to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. While we're happy that your server was 'awesome' and that you were pleased with your meal, we are concerned that the server at a neighboring table utilized inappropriate language and failed to control unruly customers. Obviously, this is unacceptable! Due to the Cinco de Mayo celebration, we employed... More
