On 10-26-16, during my latest camping trip in the area, I tried out yet another Mexican restaurant for lunch in Cottonwood. This is El Patio, a little place tucked into the Safeway shopping center. Once again I chose well. I had a combo plate of beef enchilada, taco, rice and beans, chips and salsa, plus ice tea, for a remarkably... More

We stumbled onto this place quite by accident and we're glad we did. If "ambiance" is important to you, this may not be the place for you. BUT, if great authenic Mexican food at reasonable prices with excellent service is what you're looking for, look no further. We'll definitely be returning and taking family and friends with us! Can't wait... More

On our way back from Jerome, we stumbled upon this great place. Although not much to look at, the food at El patio was terrific! The best chile relleno that I have had since we left El Paso. The chicken enchilada and taquitos were also outstanding. The service was excellent. We are looking forward to returning!

El Patio is a hidden gem in Cottonwood!!! It's at the east end of the Safeway plaza, we eat here all the time and have never had a mediocre meal, it's always fantastic. I highly reccomend them.

I like El Patio. The prices are so low that I almost feel guilt eating there. The food is decent. The servers are friendly. The tacos are good and sometimes they are only $1. The Sunday Brunch is a lot of food for the money. I recommend it. The restaurant is not real nice, so I can only really give... More
