With so many choices for Mexican or Tex-Mex food, we decided to take a chance on Loco Patron. We're glad we did. Food was great; prices were reasonable, and servers were very nice. We made two trips during our vacation. Thanks.

Group of 5 was seated quickly in the open air seating area. Loud sports bar type atmosphere. We chose from the "u pick 2." Tacos and burritos were bland, at best. Katherine was a good server.

My sisters and my husband went here and had an awesome time. Outside seating is the best in the evening. The food and drinks are good, and the service is fast and friendly. Loco Patron has s very social and fun vibe!

I was originally going to Cold Beers and Cheeseburgers, but that place was packed. I came here for cold beer, and I wasn't disappointed. Great service! Not the same depth chart for trying something new, but good selection of local favorites.

After reading previous reviews and looking at the pictures of the food; we must have been in the wrong place. The food, smothered burrito and chicken enchiladas, were fair at best. And that might be a generous evaluation. The music was so loud you could hardly hear the person sitting next to you. The rest room was filthy. I would... More

These other reviewers must have been drunk I have had better tacos from taco bell. I get a free meal from there every Thursday and it's still not worth it. Greasy food and dingy waitress

Staying at the AC hotel, this was the closest restaurant on my iPhone. Great appetizer menu and amazing value and service.. Free chips and salsa - fresh salsa, and the best I've ever tasted outside of Mexico. The experience was so good tonight I'm going back for lunch tomorrow.

Decided to try it while driving down Scottsdale Rd looking for lunch and we're so glade we did. The menu was easy to follow and the prices under $20. My husband had the beef burrito with rice and beans and I had two of the street tacos with rice and beans. Both meals were extremely tasty with full of flavor.... More
