“A good option in Cave City”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Being tourists, we wanted something healthy and local. El Patron is conveniently located to the highway and hotels, so we tried it. Good Mexican food, delicious fresh guacamole, friendly owner and servers. The atmosphere was a little dull, since we sat on the non-smoking side, and all the action and the bar was on the smoking side. Still a good choice.

“Keep driving (fast) unless.....”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Look - here's the deal. Obviously this place is for the karaoke, over 70 smoking cowboy crowd (which is fine) - otherwise, it sux. My BLT looked (and tasted) like my great- great grandmother made it without her glasses (raw bacon, 1/16" thick), cheeseburger was frozen patty - service was zzzzzzzzzzz, and trying to talk over karaoke and smoke was a joke. Chips from bag and salsa from jar - sorry - tried to like it because "owners" seemed nice (except wife had a 'tude) - $40 later, should have gone to Wendy's :*(

“Mex in Kentucky”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Good Mexican food including top shelf Margaritas. It must be hard to run a Mexican Restaurant out there. The menu has many "American" entries with a few Mexican but what's there is good.

“yum”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. the strawberry margarita was ordered with sugar instead of salt and they complied to the "T'. was a bit surprised at the cheese sauce though. it was like broccoli-cheese soup without the broccoli. tasty but white and very thin. meal was great.

“Good food and inexpensive”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

The food is mostly Mexican with a small amount of American. Breakfast is served all day long. Service was quick and the food came very hot.
