El Patio is a 10 out of 5 stars! The very best. I get the chimichanga & while we are waiting they serve you homemade chips & salsa. If you want quick fast food to pacify you - go to Taco Bell across the street. If you want fabulous authentic Mexican food with a wonderful staff - go to El... More

We ordered a cheese quesadilla and the special dinner to share. Everything was very tasty. I would have preferred fresh salsa instead of canned tomatoes that are used, but it was still good.

My wife and I ate here again yesterday for the first time in several months and were relieved to find that the food and service and cleanliness were all excellent, just as they were on previous visits. We started with white queso dip and freshly fried chips, great, and then I got the Enchilada Suprema--yum, four enchiladas, one each with... More

This is in a local strip mall. Nice restaurant but it could use a little tlc cleaning. Food and service were good but there is an outdoor area that could be a neat dining space. Needs some updating.

Ate there last night. Had a very tasty dish: chori pollo. It's chicken, chorizo, pineapples (nice little sweet addition), and melted cheese. I asked for double frijoles (refried beans) instead of rice. They accommodated, and I ate it up. You get flour tortillas with it. Could use at least one more of those considering the size of the dish. But... More

While pasting through Bristol on the way home from vacation we stopped to eat a late lunch. We weren't disappointed the food was great & so was the service. I had a taco salad overflowing. My husband had steak & chicken mixed fajitas, plenty of food. Everything was delicious & the waitress was great.

We found this on Trip adviser and was as good as what the reviews said😏. The service was fast and our waiter came back many times to check to see if everything was ok. I was impressed with our waiter, my wife and her sister ask for a mix drink and both are over 50.
