Always on the hunt for authentic tacos and found Tacos al pastor on the menu. They were excellent and the hot sauce with them was perfect! Great service and the building is really cool with rich history. Will definitely be back!

With a group of individuals who were Mexican food afficinatos. Was not dissatisfied. Excellent service and the amount and quality of the food served was enough to bring home. There are several Mexican establishments in the area but this rates right up there.

Wine and Margarita pricing high compared to decor and service. Ordered from vegetarian menu items . Burrito with gravy type spinach and cream, cheese enchalida with rice and beans . Chips were not so fresh but ok with salsa which is a free give away at most mex places.

We have been to El Patron several times. The Mexican food is decent to good... and we enjoyed pretty much all that we had. The service has always been slow. All of our group loves music (all are singers and/ or musicians)... HOWEVER, the loudness of the music was UNBEARABLE. We asked two table service members, and the bartender was asked also(apparently he was the one in control of the volume) several times to lower the volume. This never happened. We had to shout to hear each other even a little. Initially, there were a number of guests at the bar, the restaurant was fairly busy, and we sat way in the back of the main room. Regardless, a big speaker was right in our "face" and there was no way to control it. For the last approx. 45 minutes of our meal, almost all of the other diners had left... and even then, they couldn't deign to make the volume acceptable. Two types of music was played... some sort of LOUD latin-y type hip hop, and latin/Mexican. The second was more enjoyable...but frankly, the music ruined our evening. Not sure if we will go back again.
