Second time there. Enjoyed it more the first time. Service was very good. But the food arrived cool.

Very attentive service with great happy hour specials on appetizers and drinks. Enjoyed some sangria with delicious guacamole. My friend enjoyed the chicken mole. My steak quesadillas were tasty but a bit greasy. Overall, we really enjoyed the food with the server's friendliness and efficiency.

We reserved a table for 7 on Cinco De Mayo. Can be tricky on a big holiday like that but we where seated early, not fuss about the whole group not being there right at 7 which is always nice!! The food and drinks as always where great, we had some issues with our order being right though not sure if it was the added noise because of the holiday or that server but it was annoying enough I took off a star. They had a 9 piece Mariachi band in for the occasion which was a really nice addition to the night!

The large red lamp shades make the bar side of the place more interesting. Decent Mexican food including a couple of nicely cooked skirt steak offers - the carne asada was quite flavorful and surprisingly tender. The carnitas tacos were tasty. The queso fundido w chorizo was good - but the proportion of chorizo to cheese was off - needed more than a sprinkling of chorizo. Did NOT appreciate the waiter bringing two "cadillac" margaritas at $12 each when I ordered the House traditional margarita. To make the matter worse, the cadillac tasted no better than the traditional and just somewhat bigger in goblets as oppose to a glass at a significant mark up. Crazy busy on Cinco de Mayo. Should have paid more attention to what was served.

Very spacious. Separate bar and dining areas. Very happy having gone in not knowing what to expect. Not fancy, but good, chilled atmosphere with tasty drinks.

I found this place online just by searching mexican. Im pretty sure the location was the old coyote ugly, not that familiar with the city, lol. Great food, great service, plenty of top tequila, in short I cant complain.

Nice place, very colorful. Waitress was very nice,energetic and attentative. The food was good, however if you can't handle spicy food then please let your waitress know. The food was good no complaints on that end.

Our family had another very pleasant meal at Patron's this weekend. Special shout-out to our server, Pricilla, and to our favorite hostess Gloria. They made us feel very welcome and at home.

Food was lukewarm. Had to walk to the back of the restaurant to ask for service. Lightbulbs needed to be replaced. Just really a bummer. Won't be back.

We had a girls dinner here after one had returned from a trip, so it was nice that it wasn't crowded/loud since we were planning on hearing all about the trip. Our server was good, however we all said the food was just 'ehh'. I had the enchiladas with "red" sauce. It is like no red sauce I had ever had. It was very dark and thick. I asked if I was served mole on accident. She said, 'no, this is just how our red sauce is.' Ok, note to self. My friend got the chicken fajitas and said they were just pretty bland. Other friend got the steak tacos and said they were fine. We all agreed our drinks were good (Margaritas, Micheladas and Palomas). We left saying that we would rather have traveled further for Uncle Julio's.

We went to eat dinner for Valentine's Day as a last minute plan. I was delightfully surprised that the food was good and the ambiance was nicer than I thought it would be.
