    Extremely short staffed for a holiday… 2 members of our party were DONE eating before the other 3 got food at all. Ordered multiple drinks from the menu that “they weren’t doing that day”…. Ordered 4 drinks, only got 2 of the 4, no one came to check on us. Felt bad, people working hard but absolutely terrible service for Mother’s Day - paid $200 for food and $60 for the special event. Not worth it at all.

    The experience was terrible. The music was very loud. And the other customers were screaming at each other over the music. We couldn’t even hear each other at our table, so there was no conversation. I was very disappointed.

    The food and the drinks were absolutely wonderful. The birria tacos are delicious. The service was a bit slow. We had a reservation and they were late seating us but after about 45 min they told us they needed our table, which I found exceptionally odd.

    Our server, Emma was sweet, attentive and knowledgeable. She made great recommendations as well. Our food was okay, my sister really enjoyed her barbacoa and my father liked the vegetarian quesadilla. The table salsa was salty and spicy and the tortilla chips were stale. The atmosphere was nice and I didn't like how long it took to seat us, almost 20 minutes, though we had a reservation.

    My order was messed up twice and two of my dinner party also had issues with their order. The food was good but frustrating to not have things come out the way you request. The margaritas are very tasty though and our server was kind and apologetic.

    The service was impeccable! Our drinks and appetizers were at our table practically before our waitress was even out of eye sight! They obviously work as a close knit team. The drinks and food were phenomenal! We said we already can’t wait to come back after taking just one bite of the guac agave berry.

    My fiancé & I went to dinner there last night after planing to go months ago but we finally got there. We walked in and was IMMEDIATELY fretted with the host who was by far the friendliest host EVER!!! He was non stop taking and making sure we were good on our evening. Our waitress was so amazing that she please my fiancé with her fav dish on the menu and my fiancé lit up like crazy. We had ordered our food with no onions due to me being allergic and they had messed up my fiancé’s order and our waitress IMMEDIATELY said that can’t go out due to my allergy and I guess the kitchen staff gave her a hard time but she fought for us to make sure our order was correct before leaving the kitchen. So in all YOU MUST GO TO THIS PLACE AND ITS WORTH EVERY PENNY YOU SPEND!!! I believe our waitress name was Journey, ask for her

    The food was fine. The street tacos were small, the burritos were large. Our waitress must have been new. It took her awhile to take our orders. But that is understandable. It's the bill that is the issue. We were not told that 6 people at a table was a "large group" requiring an automatic 20% tip on our tab. We were not told that we would get an additional fee for using a credit card. That information should have been made clear.

    Kathy, I do apologize this information was not given to you by our server! I will address this. Our service fees and charges are made explicit on our menu, but I will ensure to re-communicate with our staff so that they can explicitly deliver this information! Thank you for your business.

    We were looking forward to a fun night out and their place was entirely disappointing. The margarita flight was a fruit smoothie with a splash of tequila. The margaritas we ordered had no tequila in them at all. The guacamole had no flavor, the pico de gallo was 90% onion, and was $25 for the large trio. The restaurant was dirty and the staff all seemed to be confused about what was happening. All around, we would never return.

    Excellent food, excellent drinks, good atmosphere. The only thing lacking was service (we had to flag someone down to even take our drink order) which unfortunately is not a new issue for El Patron and not specific to any one server.

    This was my first time at El Patron Tequileria and I was pleased with the experience. Our server was helpful in ordering especially with one person's dietary restrictions. Our drinks and food were delivered promptly. All the members in my group agreed how good the food was. I am definitely returning.

    My friends loved the tacos, particularly the shrimp. They have a nice variety of choices, too. The meat in my carne burrito was over-cooked, which isn't unusual for most Mexican restaurants, but I always hope to find one where it isn't. Wasn't crowded which is a shame because the building space is beautiful in a prime downtown location. Service was constant in an unassuming way and the waitress was very personable and helpful.
