This is an authentic Mexican tienda with a restaurant in the back. They have an efficient ordering system and fast service, and the food is great. They have a great bakery and a large selection of pinatas. Great place for lunch.

El Patron is the definition of a hidden gem. This Mexican restaurant/supermarket is housed in an old supermarket plaza, which at first glance appears abandoned but is home to authentic flavorful Mexican food. I have visited on a handful of occasions and have always had a good experience. I’ve had their tacos, tostadas, tamales, and chips and guacamole, all of which were fantastic. The meat used in the dishes is always tender and flavorful and the veggies are fresh and crisp.

This place is part grocery store and part restaurant and bakery. We always order the chicken tacos and have never been disappointed. The flavors and the sauces are excellent. We have never ordered a cake or baked goods but they look great and are popular with other patrons. Highly recommend this place for great Mexican food at a fair price. Best in Bartow in my opinion.

My colleague brought me here for lunch. If you don't know where the restaurant is, it will be difficult to find. You go through what looks like a convienence store to the restaurant in the back. There are many choices on the menu. We had both the gorditas and the burrito. Both blew me away! Even though the food doesn't need it, the sauces were extremely good as well! It was very authentic...not like your typical Mexican place. Make sure to order a refresca from the register as that is the specialty drink. They were phenomenal. I can't wait to return!
