I love this place! It's conveniently located just about a mile and a half off Exit 179 on I-65. The restaurant is clean and nicely decorated. The staff is always friendly and fast. The food is authentic and delicious! I feel like everything on the menu is reasonably priced and really tasty!

Clean, well staffed, and very friendly. Lunch time is my favorite time to visit. Great price on lunch specials and big portions. The steak fajitas and chicken enchiladas are great. Salsa and chips are fresh. If you like guacamole gives theirs a try. A very nice atmosphere and young children are welcomed. Give this place a try.

Was in on a Saturday night and the restaurant was not busy. I was seated promptly however took a while to get a server to wait on me and then once my order was delivered did not see him again until time to checkout.

My wife and I chose El Patron for lunch. The decor is bright and very reminiscent of Mexico. Latin music plays in the background; TV's for sport watching abound. The server was pleasant. We thought it would be good as other diners spoke Mexican to the servers. It wasn't. My wife ordered a beef taco, rice and beans. Nearly inedible... More

I have nothing negative to say. Excellent rating. The food is great. The service was quick. The entire wait staff was extremely friendly. I was impressed with the fact that not just my waiter checked on me. Almost every member of the wait staff that walked by my table, spoke to me and asked if I needed anything. Now that's... More

We were a group of 6. The service was prompt and courteous. The salsa and chips are really good to start before the meal. Orders included enchiladas, chimichangas, tacos. All were happy with the meal. Good sized portions. They also have good margaritas.

Stopped in on a Sunday night. Service prompt and friendly, complimentay chips and salsa arrived quickly. Being from Texas we have tried many places for Tex/Mex food. Not the best but far from the worst. Here for two more weeks and will probably return.
