Stopped in for lunch at noon on a Wednesday. Lots of traffic around the mall but plenty of parking at the restaurant. Menu is on the wall as you walk in with huge number of choices in every category - pork, chicken, burgers, salads, etc. Everyone can find something they like. It's a barbecue place but I had fish tacos... More

This location is across from the Yorktown Shopping Center, thus there will be crowds. The Patio is quite predictable with their quality regardless of the location you are at. I've never really gotten a bad sandwich. They have been expanding their menu over the past few years to offer more "meals" so that it can feel more like a traditional... More

I visited this restaurant with a few friends. ..nothing really special about it from my experience. .the food and service was ok...maybe I will go back and give it another try soon...however, if your looking for a good meal, not expecting much..just to sit, eat & enjoy friends then this is a good spot to do just that.

My friend and I went for dinner. We both got the combination platters - mine with dry rubbed ribs and chicken, she got ribs and pulled pork. The ribs were delicious, crispy and flavorful. The side of BBQ sauce was good but not needed. The chicken was a leg and thigh and amazing flavor. She was not as thrilled with... More

I am obsessed with the chicken at The Patio!! I discovered the BBQ chicken a couple of years ago and now I'm obsessed with the Greek chicken that they use in their salads and sandwiches. Love the oriental salad and today I tried the pita sandwich with Tzatziki sauce. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu

Went here for dinner with hubby and was very pleased with the food. We had the half rack of rib and brisket combo. The ribs were not as tender as we would have liked, but they weren't horrible either. There was a fair amount of meat on them. The brisket were nice large chunks and not much fat. I had... More
