As a former regular, I am SO glad to report that El Patron will be reopening soon. They are relocating only 2 blocks west of their former location....where the old Anchor Bar was. Excellent food, wait staff, ambiance and prices. I can't wait!!!

Except for the air conditioning not keeping up with the hot weather outside, our dinner yesterday was as great as always at El Patrón. The kids always love seeing the fish tank as well.
