I have been coming here for many years. Their food is better than any other Mexican restaurant in the Tri-Cities. It is not as good as California Mexican but it's still pretty good. Love their salsa (and you can ask for the spicier one) and...More

The salsa and cheese dip is the best in Bristol. They have super fast service and the food is always great. The food is always hot and fresh. They're always busy during lunch and dinner but the wait time is never more than 15 minutes.

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....More
