Overall a great meal. The waitress was good, but was slow to bring drinks and the food was brought out 3 separate times over 5+ minutes for 7 people. We had to sit and watch our food get cold, as we wanted to be polite to our friends 2 on another). I ended up paying for my friend's drinks, as I didn't want to say anything.
This was our second visit. We wish El Patron had a St. Louis branch!
Restaurant crammed 6 tables too close together when the other areas had no diners. This was very annoying and not in keeping with web site which claimed they were COVID responsible!
The food was good and attentive server.
Loved the food and service!!
Energetic atmosphere. Food is on par with the average Mexican restaurant. Flavorful queso but it arrived cold. Our server seemed either overwhelmed or spacey. I ordered the burrito with both veggies and shrimp and they forgot the veggies and also charged me for it.
Their chips and salsa/queso comes with round chips. I suggest asking for the triangle chips. Not sure why they give out the round chips other than that they are probably cheaper.
Overall an okay experience and might try again. Servers need to be more attentive.
The Sunday buffet was outstanding! Everything was so delicious! We took our family of nine and everyone loved it!
Their Margaritas are amazing. I highly recommend the flight to taste three different flavors. Their food was delicious and a lot. Definitely will be returning to this restaurant
Excellent authentic food and the best margaritas. The best service we’ve had on our vacation in Florida hands down.
I visit El Patron every time I'm the area as they have great food at
We were looking to try a Mexican restaurant around the Orlando area and found this on OpenTable. Happy we did. Great food, service was excellent, and margarita flight was a great deal and each of the three (Rustics, skinny, and I think classic) all were decent top shelf tequila and mixes that had great flavor. Their guacamole was one of my wife's favorites and our fajitas (steak and chicken) were good portions and flavors. The chips and salsa was also good and our server asked if I like hit sauce and brought out their homemade fire sauce. Use in small amounts she warned and rightfully so. Added great flavor but truly fire. We will be back.
Great food. Great service. Good vibe.
Looked good for families.
Apps & tacos edible, not great. Chimichanga was cold. We had to wait and wait for every course. Asked the waiter for boxes to take home leftovers - he said "sure" & proceeded to stack all the plates and take them away. 20 minute wait for fried ice cream and flan. They both arrived ice cold, neither dish was exposed to any heat. The horrendous service became laughable at the end. I know it's a tourist trap, but........................ it's a rather sad commentary on a place when the complimentary salsa & chips are the best thing other than the drinks.
Drinks arrived after food. Server forgot items that we were billed for. We won’t return.
The food was excellent but the service was a little slow
The food was excellent as well as the service and atmosphere! We will visit again.
We had fantastic service and fabulous food here. The flavors are authentic and the price is very reasonable for the quantity of food received. We will be back!
We enjoyed our visit. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful. Great drinks and food. Pleasant atmosphere. Would visit again.
The staff is very friendly. We had fajitas and they were over priced. My husband asked for cheese for his fajita and we were charged for it . It’s sad to be nickeled and dimes when you are over spending. Nice people subpar food.
Great food. I think the margaritas are a little overpriced, but good.
Excellent food and service.
Great food. Not overpriced. Somewhat of a good service. They can definitely do better but it’s good.
The food was decent, which is the only nice thing I can say about this place. I’m not sure if the staff is inexperienced, or indifferent. Either way, they were completely inattentive, and the sound of dishes being dropped and broken is constant. And it wasn’t even that busy. Our server Daniel, might be a nice guy, but the worst waiter in the world. It actually hurt to tip him. Smoothies were good. The appetizer sampler was good, but came out long after our other apps were completed. In fact, it came out so late, we forgot we had ordered it. Don’t get the salmon.
Worst meal I had in Orlando. It tastes like nothing. Salsa bland
Amy gave us amazing service and recommendations. The food was outstanding and we’ll definitely be back.
We enjoyed our food, and it was a pleasant dining experience.
In town for Disney trip... after first long day at the park we were all starving. We open-tabled our rez & were there in 10 minutes of booking. Although restaurant was busy we were sat right away. our server was super friendly & attentive. we ordered our pitcher of don julio margarita & was one of the best we've had in a while. food was great! can't remember what each one of us had, but we i do know we were all happy!
It was valentine's day and we had a reservation for four at 8pm but the place was so full that we had to get on a wait list for about 40 minutes before heading to our table. We didn't mind, the place was crazy full and they went above and beyond to give us an amazing service. Our waiter Gabriel was incredibly nice and we talked and laughed the whole night. Drinks were awesome, not too strong just perfect. Food was authentic, flavorful and delicious. Desserts were to die for! Don't leave without trying the flan! We had an amazing time and will be coming back.
We never got to eat there. There were so many people you could hardly get in the door. They told us they would try and get us a table but couldn’t promise anything even with a reservation. Due to covid we were not comfortable waiting. You could not move without touching someone.
Food was excellent
My boyfriend and I ate here for Valentine’s Day. Amazing food and great service. Great value as well
Amazing drinks, service was excellent, artisan tacos were fantastic. It was a great experience
The fajitas were delicious! Service was great. We ate outside and tables were socially distance. Service was good!
Wow...these tacos were good! Best Mexican food we have had in Orlando.
The best food and beautiful presentation! We had the best server, Amy! Felt like we had made a new friend when we left! We love this restaurant so much we came back three days later for a second dinner!
Service was great!
A great local eatery with a solid menu. A definite stop for us when we're in Orlando.
Great homemade authentic food. Atmosphere was energetic and appeared to be clean and within CDC guidelines.
We had a wonderful time. Street tacos were amazing!! Service was spectacular.
