Been going here off and on for a number of years. After my last experience, its off... period.
Food is okay... just okay... bathrooms were filthy, waitress bored and unengaged at first. Lots of uncleaned tables with numerous staff just hanging out and talking with each other. No lack of slack. You can do better.

El Patio serves New Mexican food. It is extremely spicy and they have poor, rude service. Their wine margaritas were weak and and not worth the money. Will never eat here again!

El Patio is conveniently located by the university and some way off the free way. I got the bean stuffed sopapilla. It was very dry and kind of flavorless. The. Portions are usually very small as well. The waitstaff there is also horrible! I have gone twice and both times it takes forever with the food and you get about 1 maybe 2 refills if you are lucky, and they usually have bad attitudes. The seating outside is kind of cramped up. I would only recommend this place is your in the area and starving for New Mexican food.

This is a good sampling of good New Mexican food. I went for lunch on a Saturday. Order green chicken enchiladas with beans and potatoes. Laid back, near campus. Parking can be an issue at times due to restrictions and limited spaces nearby. I'd go back. Service was so-so (few places in the world excel at service so it was pretty average.)

I loved my lunch at El Patio -- everything was fresh, the waiter was personable, and the food was fantastic. At first, I was afraid the red chili sauce would be too spicy, but my mouth acclimated and it was delicious!
