I have been eating at El Patio for over 20 years. They have excellent fresh food and lots of vegetarian options too.

The owner and main staff know me and always say high.

If you are vegatarian, I recommend the McDougal plates or the the Vegatarian mixed vegetable plate. Get some extra tortillas and it's enough for 2.

The restaurant itself is very casual, hole-in-the-wall type strip mall atmosphere. El Patio's food is consistently very good, and I've been going there for over 15 years now. I order the McDougall deluxe burrito, my husband orders the #9 (carne asada dinner) and my daughter orders a chicken burrito. Maybe "thrills" is a little strong, but in a way it is kind of thrilling to have consistently good food and consistently courteous and quick service.

This is my go to taqueria. When I don't feel like cooking I run down to El Patio for a BRC burrito or enchiladas. I love this place. They also have a McDougal menu which is vegetarian, high fiber and low fat so if you are on a diet, it is a good place to go.

One word. Nachos. Except Trip Advisor makes you write 50. So El Patio, all locations, are great. It is family owned and operated and the food is very fresh. It is great Mexican food and they have options for people with different food needs (vegetarian, diet, healthy, substitutions). I was out of California for five weeks and the first place I went when I got back was El Patio. PS there red salsa is amazing.
