Lots of great meal choices, veggies too! Very nice, friendly, fast service. This location only has a few inside tables with the others outside but covered. They also don't sell beer, but the food is worth it all. Nice size orders at a fair price.

I wish that they had more tables inside as this place is very busy at lunch and supper. Ordering vegetarian is a delight. Your order is taken from their counter, and delivered to your table. I had the vegetarian enchilada which came with lettuce on the side and was great and a good value. I also recommend their burritos. The... More

Huge variety of standard Mexican food and healthy food. About 10 different breakfast burritos, which are huge. The taco salad is huge as well. You can call in your order, and it will be ready right when you want it.

My friends and I ordered burritos form here and they repeated the order back to us three times. Its not that hard to make a burrito with just meat, black beans, rice, cheese and no onions. I guess their chef doesn't understand NO ONIONS because my friend who is highly allergic to onions got a ton on her burrito which... More

The food had little to no flavor. About as Mexican as vodka, but at least the vodka has more flavor. Even my lady who came here in college was all like this place sucks now.

This is our very favorite Mexican restaurant. Wonderful, wonderful, generous food. Haven't tried anything we didn't like. Service is always with a smile. Great horchata.

We stopped in after a flight at Russian River Brewing which is just down the street! We were delighted by the bright decor and welcoming staff. Our food, wet super burritos, was awesome! So big we could have split one, filled with fresh ingredients, and served quick and hot! Salsas were bright and fresh. A gem!

We used to live in Santa Rosa and El Patio was our favorite. The portions are large, ingredients fresh, and taste authentic. On a recent return visit to the Bay Area, we made a pilgrimage to El Patio. Still good as ever. Tips: Weather permitting take your food to go and picnic in the park across the street. Do be... More

I have the flu and am vegatarian. So the owner made me special an awesome big bowl of vegatable soup in a chicken broth. It's not on the menu and the was glad to make special. El Patio off of Stoney Point & Occidental road is the better of the 2 in Santa Rosa. HIGHLY recommend.
