El Patio Taqueria
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 22, 2011

If you can ignore the deteriorating facade of the former Taco Time and the overpowering murals on the interior walls, you could really enjoy the food at El Patio.

The food is flavorful and "clean" -- not overly greasy and messy.

A favorite of mine is the burrito fajita, served with a tiny bed of lettuce topped with cilantro-heavy (heavenly) pico de gallo.

Also notable are the side tacos on soft corn tortillas, the tortilla soup, the molcajete, and the house-made chips and salsa. The salsa his a nice kick!

All accompanying sauces (such as the one on the burrito fajita) are not your run-of-the-mill from-a-bottle tasting sauce. Nearby restaurants -- including the one down the hill -- all have institutional-tasting sauces... they all taste the same. Not at El Patio.

Service is friendly and can be really quick. Sometimes they seem distracted, but our orders have been accurate.
