Over the years we have eaten at El Patron many times and everything has always been wonderful! I decided to host a last minute get together and wanted to order a platter but it was less than 24 hours notice. Without hesitation they said yes....More

We always enjoy El Patron. It is a little out of the beaten path (not on the main drag of Grants Pass), but worth the little extra drive. Food is consistently good. Staff is always friendly and accommodating.

Wow! Looking for great Mexican food in the Rogue valley and (thankfully) stumbled on El Patron. The Enchilada's de Cameron (Shrimp Enchilada's) blow away any I've had - even in Los Angeles where there is an abundance of great Mex food. The Tortilla Soup has...More
