This is the second time I have gone to this restaurant. The food is great and so is the service. I love their homemade quac. This restaurant is good for large or small groups and is just great.

The restaurant seemed well staffed for the amount of customers. However, we saw our server only 3 times - when she took our order, when she brought our bill and when she filled only 2 of the 4 water glasses that had been empty for at least 20 minutes. The person who delivered our food did not refill the water,... More

My family met here for a reunion and were very pleased with the food, service and price. The portions are generous and the ingredients are fresh. My only quibble is that the noise level is high.

Went here on an early Friday evening. We each ordered a beer and a rather expensive entrée. (don't remember the names of the dishes). Mine was chicken with sautéed veggies. The veggies were a bit overcooked but the meal was ok. Can't remember what the hubs had. It was just that boring. Nothing about this place stood out. The server... More

The patron serves fairly authentic Mexican. Eat here often as my son loves the fajitas. The pricing is a tad higher than other local Mexican places but the food is better. The carne Asada is excellent, as well as the patron grill. The table side fresh made guacamole is also very good.

My wife and daughter were on the way to another Mexican restaurant but decided to stop along the way and try Patron. I had read mixed reviews but figured we'd give it a shot. We were really surprised and how much we liked it. The atmosphere was great, the food was very tasty and the service was great as well.... More

We ordered take-out from here as we are staying at Homewood Suites. They got our order a little wrong but that was okay. The food is delicious. It is not your average Mexican food. The food is very well prepared and absolutely deliciousl. Did I say it is delicious?

I'm not sure what some people consider to be good food anymore, as this is the third place in a row in this area where we went based on a recommendation, only to find a complete flop in all regards. For starters, the service was very slow, and not friendly in the least. We ordered a margarita and it was... More

The food has an authentic flavor. I HIGHLY recommend the fresh table guacamole. The service is so-so as it really depends on who you get as your server. Sometimes, they can be a little slow to deliver drinks and there isn't as much follow-up as there should be (checking on drinks, etc.). Overall, this is a favorite of mine and... More

This is currently our favorite Mexican within 20 miles of our home. The food is consistently good, fast and with friendly staff. They offer some nice special dinners like a meal served in 1/2 a pineapple. Some of the staff have done a really nice job of talking to our teenagers in both Spanish and English. They make eating there... More
