El Patron is located in the former building of another popular New Mexican restaurant that closed their doors many years ago. The restaurant is perfectly decorated for the food and service, and there is plenty of parking in the area.
We dined in a large party of 8 people, and our waiter did an average job taking care of us on the weekday evening we ate here. Chips and salsa were served promptly, and they were delicious. Salsa was spicy and tasted fresh made.
Portions were generous; even the child's plates were too large for small children to consume alone. Green Chile was spicy and red Chile was flavorful. All entrees were served hot and were very tasty.
Bottom line: We will surely dine at El Patron again next time we want good New Mexican food in Albuquerque.
