This is in a local strip mall. Nice restaurant but it could use a little tlc cleaning. Food and service were good but there is an outdoor area that could be a neat dining space. Needs some updating.

Ate there last night. Had a very tasty dish: chori pollo. It's chicken, chorizo, pineapples (nice little sweet addition), and melted cheese. I asked for double frijoles (refried beans) instead of rice. They accommodated, and I ate it up. You get flour tortillas with it. Could use at least one more of those considering the size of the dish. But... More

While pasting through Bristol on the way home from vacation we stopped to eat a late lunch. We weren't disappointed the food was great & so was the service. I had a taco salad overflowing. My husband had steak & chicken mixed fajitas, plenty of food. Everything was delicious & the waitress was great.

We found this on Trip adviser and was as good as what the reviews said😏. The service was fast and our waiter came back many times to check to see if everything was ok. I was impressed with our waiter, my wife and her sister ask for a mix drink and both are over 50.

Had the vegetarian or garden quessadilla which came with rice and beans on the side. Best one I have ever had; lost count of how many different veggies were in it. Truly a garden in there! The iced tea was excellent as well. Can't wait to go back and try some other dishes!

While traveling to Bristol we tried El Patio based on other folks reviews. We ordered the Parilla Fiesta, think Fajitas on steroids! We split, had tons of leftovers. We ordered it without green peppers and it came out with peppers. When they brought a new one it tasted as though they truly made a new Malala.
