We visited on a Friday afternoon. The parking lot was full but we we immediately were seated at the outdoor upstairs deck. Which is always unshadowed on sunny days. Given an Indian Summer in November, this was exactly what we had hoped for. The chips are light and crisp, and the house margaritas tasted authentic, naturally flavored, plus the right amount of tequila. We split the sizzlung hot veggie fajitas which are some of the best in town. They were a noticeably over salted, but otherwise perfectly grilled. The accompanying rice, beans, and guacamole were all very good. We have dined here before and always had to wait, so the late afternoon alfresco foray was a welcome change. Our waitress was friendly, welcoming, reasonably attentive, and efficient.

I hosted a large dinner group at this terrific Mexican restaurant. The food was spectacular. Everyone had something different and everyone commented how tasty it was. Our only challenge was hearing each other when some of the nearby guests forgot 'inside voices' after too many margaritas.

...of run of the mill Mexican restaurants. Looked like one more. So played it safe and got the steak empanadas. And queso. Ok, I was wrong. Delicious. One of the best things I’ve put in my mouth. Dip delicious. Party of 10 nothing was sub par. Great service even with full establishment. I’ll be back.

This restaurant has great food, strong and delicious margaritas, and a fun atmosphere. Happy hour has half off margaritas. Get it on the rocks, but beware if you are driving, they can put a savvy drinker on the floor before you know it. We visit El Patron regularly and we are never disappointed. If the weather is nice, try out the patio. This place is popular, on weekend nights, it gets packed quick.

My family and I had a great meal here. The food was delicious: well prepared, very fresh tasting, authentic Mexican food. Also, great margaritas! The staff was very welcoming and friendly. We'll come again.
