Been a loyal guest for years love the carne guisada and rice and the hot sauce on top of a buttered cracker! i will cont to go there now matter how long it takes! lol. they didnt last all these years 4 nothing.
This resturant is only good in the morning and lunchtime when the owners are there. The food is good and service is awesome but in the evening the food is mediocre (mostly because its cold) and there arent enought waitresses to handle the volume. We waited over an hour for our food and they couldnt keep our drinks full
very nice restaurant i can say (home feeling,love those chile ornaments) very friendly and attentive service were they keep you coffee cup full and the food just like mom makes at home potato and egg,chorrizo and egg,very good omelete's,pancakes great flour tortillas and the salsa was good also but needed a bit more heat but that just me(like that burning sensation)would have like to tried their dinner menu seem like they have some good seafood dishes with everything being fresh and local they should be very good?!
Of all the Mexican food restaurants you can choose from in Port Lavaca, this is worst possible choice. The hot sauce they bring with the chips is cold. Like, refridgerator cold. I always get the same thing when I eat Mexican food, chicken fajitas, which are pretty difficult to mess up, but they have somehow managed. I just don't care for the food, I don't even eat the rice and beans. I have no earthly idea how they are still in business.
My husband and I went their last night 09-10-2010 We will Never go back. The food took forever. And NO they were not busy. Took the waittress forever to bring our chips and to re-fill our tea glasses. When we did get our food it had NO flavor and was cold. When we did get our chips they were old and cold. And they are served with hot sauce you buy out of a jar. (Not salsa) The only thing that was good was the tortillas. They were home made and fresh.
I don't know who's writing these reviews, but El Patio is the most popular restaurants in town. It always has good clean food, and the reason some said they had to wait was because there's so much business. Sometimes they get overwhelmed. Try their Beef Fajita Flautas. They're fantastic.
