Steeped in a culture rich with history and customs, El Patron, a family owned restaurant, serves traditional Mexican dishes such as Tacos, Enchiladas, Burritos and Fajitas alongside house specialties such as Pork Chop Al Pastor, Carne Asada and Carnitas Michoacanas. We feature over 70 different tequilas and a number of signature margaritas in addition to a full beer, wine and liquor bar. Food is probably the most important element of Mexican culture. It is often said that "cuisine is culture" so join us for that incredible experience of eating homemade Mexican food.

    Food is really good here BUT today we left the restaurant after paying the bill and I got a phone call. Immediately accused me of walking out on our bill. Mind you there were seven of us (all family) who watched my father pay and get a receipt. I told him to ask our waitress because she brought the machine over and held it as my father signed. I tried to call back when I got the receipt from my father and they would not answer my phone call. Had to call from A different phone and ask for the manager and not directly for Pedro (my father had to call because my female voice meant don’t answer). Still tried to accuse us of walking out of our bill even though it was pending on my father’s credit card app. I hate this because I have always loved this restaurant and frequent it when I’m down here but will NOT be going back.

    I recently dined at El Patron Restaurante Mexicano and had an incredible experience. The food was amazing, showcasing authentic Mexican flavors with a modern twist. Each dish was a delightful explosion of taste, from the perfectly seasoned tacos to the rich and savory enchiladas. The service was outstanding. The staff was attentive, friendly, and always ready to assist, enhancing the overall dining experience. It's clear they value their customers and strive to make every visit memorable. The vibe of the restaurant was vibrant and welcoming. The decor was colorful and festive, creating a lively and enjoyable atmosphere. Whether you're there for a casual meal or a special occasion, the ambiance makes it a perfect spot. One of the best parts was the convenience of no waiting time thanks to making a reservation through OpenTable. It was seamless and efficient, allowing us to enjoy our evening without any hassle. Overall, El Patron Restaurante Mexicano is a fantastic place to enjoy delicious food, excellent service, and a great ambiance. Highly recommended!

    The food was pretty good. We enjoyed the guacamole. The chips and salsa were OK. The meals were average. Most of the food had pretty good taste but not so so plentiful.

    My husband and I went last Sunday, Mother’s Day, we had the buffet and it was excellent! Most of the stuff on the buffet seemed homemade and not institutional, will definitely return.
