We were looking for somewhere to eat in canyon and stumbled upon this restaurant. We were not disappointed. They have a specials board. Two of us ordered the chili relleno special that came with the chili relleno, a taco and a queso chip. The chili relleno was awesome-crispy outside with gooey cheesy center. The taco was flavorful and not greasy... More

We come to El Patio every Friday night from Amarillo. I love it!!! The specials are always good. My favorite items are the chicken enchiladas and cheese enchiladas. I love the red enchilada sauce so much I always get an extra bowl of it! If you pay with cash you also get FREE fresh sopaipillas!! This restaurant can't be beat!!

This dinner was the highlight of our trip. While it doesn't look like much from the outside, the staff is extraordinarily friendly, and the food was really excellent. Flavorful and well prepared. They were also willing to work with dietary requests from some of the people within our party. I would recommend this to anyone.

El Patio is one of my favorite restaurants. I eat here at least once a week. While they have the classic Tex-Mex menu, they also have real Mexican food from different parts of Mexico. They have daily specials. One of my favorites is the stuffed avocado. Their pork chops are delicious, too. If they have the bread pudding when you... More

This place is, eh, OK to pretty good. I would not go out of my way but good place to eat if you are in the area. We tried various dishes and they are all very good... but there is something missing to go from good to great. Tip: the orange hot sauce is very tasty but insanely hot. ..... More

We did some camping in Palo Duro Canyon and decided to drive into town to grab dinner. This place got good reviews on here, so we decided to give it a shot. The staff was super friendly and very attentive. We had 8 people in our group and all the food came out in good time and all the orders... More

Stopped here while driving through Canyon at lunch time. Had a nice authentic Mexican meal with fresh ingredients. Looked as if the locals ate lunch here.

Clean, consistently great food, impeccable service, daily specials. This restaurant is family owned, and has never wavered from "GREAT" in the 15 years I have been eating there.
