Went based on 4 1/2 star review on Trip Advisor. Very good! My husband got #26, combo platter. First time a restaurant didn't cover everything in gravy. Husband could tell what each item was and likedl.p. the different seasonings of each item. I had the...chorizo nachos. Mmmmmm so good!! Also a Sopilla. Nice presentation, good flavor(s), good salsa, and fresh chips. Paul, our waiter, was very personable and pleasant/attentative.More

We’re been frequenting El Patron for years. They are, hands-down, our favorite Mexican restaurant - even having lived in Houston for a couple of years! There’s something here for everyone (including some creative sandwiches and other menu items that will please those who don’t particularly...care for Mexican food) and they’ll customize just about anything to your liking - spice level, adding cheese, substituting veggies, etc. The food is phenomenal and always consistent, the prices are super reasonable, you get plenty of food, and the staff is always friendly and welcoming. And, since it’s just a short jaunt off of I-71, you have no excuse not to stop if you’re driving through the area! Highly recommend a million times over!More

We were in Medina three nights and ate here two. The menu is amazing, with many choices of excellent dishes. Margaritas were as fantastic as the staff said they were. Staff was very helpful and accommodating to special requests for our party of eight. I...was glad I saved room for fried pumpkin pie ice cream on our second night. Both meals were memorable. This is a must-do if you are anywhere near Medina, Ohio!More

Being from Texas we get a lot of Tex-Mex and Mexican food. This does not fall into either category for me. The server was great, the food ok....the salsa umm no! I requested some hotter salsa and they sent out the same sauce bowl with...a ton of chili powder added. I would have given more stars minus the salsa incident.More

The food is great. The are always very friendly and make sure that eating there is a good experience. You start with free chips and salsa and move on to one of their delicious entrees. They also have a delicious fried ice cream dessert.

The food was good Mexican. What really impressed me was how polite and helpful the servers and wait staff were. Also our waiter pointed out the lunch menu,, being Sunday we were surprised we could order from it. Just the right amount.
