I ate here with a group of business people and most enjoyed their food, mine was mediocre at best. The Jalepeno Margarita was awesome, try that. The queso was some of the best I've had. The service was great as well, the staff goes above and beyond to please their customers.

From Brian the " BAR MASTER" to Patricia the" Best Hostess" you will have one of your best Mexican dining events possible. Excellent service and even better food. It is the one restaurant that is a MUST EVERYTIME we go to Orlando. Keep up the excellent food and service!!! We will be back.

We tried El Patron on a whim because it was close to where we were staying. We got in about 5:00 (we thought much later and we’d run into Disney people leaving the park). It wasn’t crowed at all and the bartender waited our table. He was quite nice and food was very good. We made it for the end of happy hour (we didn’t know about that but the bartender volunteered it). $4 margaritas that were quite good. It got crowded as we were leaving so our timing was right.

Waited at an uncrowded bar for 10 minutes and was not acknowledged by the bartender. Finally called him over to get a drink. Dining room service not much different. Very slow. Food was fair at best. Will not reurn.

If I could give this place zero stars, I would. I am not sure how Trip Advisor has led us so wrong, but this may be the worst dining experience I have ever had. We waited 30 minutes before a server came over to us, and had finished our appetizer before our drinks arrived. We had 6 people - we asked for water, and got 4 waters. Once the food came, it was good - until 2 people in our group that ordered the mole chicken got to the center of their chicken and it was completely RAW. RAW CHICKEN! They offered them another dish, but at that point we had all lost our appetite. The check finally came, and they had the nerve to add an automatic 20% gratuity! Unbelievable. Do not go here.
