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.

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 were the only table in the restaurant, and the waiter could not seperate our bills for us. It took him a whole hour to figure it out. He was confused about who had what. I had to assist him and do his job by coming back to my table to ask for him. In the meantime of him trying to figure out the bills, he went to take other orders. Aside from that, I clearly stated in my reservation notes that it was my bday, and did not get a Happy Birthday dessert or acknowledement. Worst experience ever. They pre-charged us 20 percent gratuity for the horrible service! I suggest not wasting your time at this establishment!

I have been to Patron's twice. Both times, the food was exceptional. The skirt steak is amazing and I love their chile rellenos. The margaritas were good as well. The first time we went, it was a weeknight and they had a DJ playing music. It was loud but lots of fun. The second time was a Saturday night and they had the football playoffs on the TV's - it changed the ambiance from a mexican restaurant to a sports bar atmosphere - not what I was expecting for "date night."

Went to Patron Hacienda to meet friends for a birthday gathering. The location, decor and food are good. Drinks were wonderful. Wait staff was pleasant but service was a little slow. It was a salsa Monday and the night of there Pre- New Years Eve Bash so this may have been an attributing factor. I would go back and give them another chance.

The portions were large and the food delicous and authentic. The quesadilla appetizer would be enough as an entree for one. The tilapia and skirt steak were cooked perfectly. We had enough leftovers for another meal at home! Our server was very attentive - checking with us several times to make sure we had everything we needed.

I was very impressed with their tequila menu and enjoyed possibly the best margarita I have ever had. The don't use a mix so it is fresh and wonderful! I could have eaten a ton of their salsa and if I wasn't stuffed, I would have gotten some to go. The only thing I found a bit disappointing was the refried beans. My friend and I both felt they might be out of a can. Other then that, a good time was had by all EXCEPT for the fact the ceiling fans create gale force winds on your hot food.

We had noticed the place a few times and decided to check it out. It was easy to find a table on the small patio on Saturday night. The food was okay, but nothing special for Mexican food. In fact, it seemed a bit boring. But we did ask for mild and not spicy suggestions, so it might have been our mistake. The sides of rice and beans were just bland and boring.

My girlfriend really liked her Margarita and the drink menu looked much more interesting.

The service was very good(don't recall the server's name) He was helpful with menu selections, very friendly and the bus staff were also very attentive.

Might be a good place for locals to go since it is friendly and you can get something reliable, if not exciting.
