We have enjoyed El Patio for years. Owned and run by a nice family. Food ingredients are fresh. Service is so fast.

Three of us ate here for 33.00 plus tip. That seemed a little high for what we got. The owner was super nice. The portions were decent and the overall experience was good. You can tell it's authentic Mexican food. The spice was just right and the beans were perfect. Clean place with easy to find from town.

I have visited this restaurant many times and have always received good service. The food is good too. Now that they have the Tex Randall attraction right next door, head to eat at El Patio, then take a stroll through the newly landscaped area around the Tex Randall statue!!! Enjoy the spinach enchiladas!!!

I came here for the first time with my boyfriend and his family after church. I'm not a fan of thick chips, which is what they have, so I wasn't too impressed with those. We found a chunk of plastic in the hot sauce. We told the waitress and she just blankly stared at us. No apology or anything. She... More

Food here was never better than mediocre TexMex, but the waitresses were usually friendly and Canyon doesn't have many Mexican food restaurants so I ate there about once a month. Until I made the mistake of telling the owner.... when I was paying the bill and he asked if everything was okay ......that the lettuce tasted like the plastic bag... More

El Patio is always a great place to go to when you are in the mood for Mexican food. The El Pastor is wonderful...try it for yourself and see!

We were in town and craving some Mexican food on a Sunday and found this restaurant to be open. I have no big complaints but nothing really stood out either. My husband and I love Chile Rellenos and tend to try one at most tex-mex places we visit, so we ordered them here. They had a strong, peculiar taste of... More

I've had better mexican food from, well, almost everywhere. To top it off the waitress was rude and made extra efforts not at service but displaying that she was annoyed when we requested anything, water, chips, food... This was a great example of when I should have read a review first and followed the advice.

Two of us went there today, New Year's Day. Excellent food, excellent service. They serve both Mexican food and a few American type foods such as chicken fried steak. Highly recommend!

Truth in advertising: I may be used to Cal Mex, which perhaps is spicier. At least I'm speculating that's why I found the dishes fine but a bit bland. The good: great and courteous service, tasty refried beans, eager-to-please staff. Otherwise: the corn tortillas didn't seem especially moist or fresh, in other words, homemade? Doubt it. The carne guisada was... More
