Clean restaurant may be a strange title for a review, but I find that if a restaurant's bathroom is clean and they have WARM water to wash your hands, the kitchen is clean as well. El Patio meets that criteria, as well as the seating area. The food is delicious and made to order. Besides good Mexican, they have great... More

If you are looking for some great Mexican style food this is the place to go. They also serve hamburgers for those that do not enjoy Mexican style food and a kids menu. The staff is always friendly and helpful.

Heading up to Tucson to do a little shopping and decided to stop for lunch in Green Valley on the way. We’d heard some good thing about El Patio from the folks at the local car wash and decided to give it a try. Easy to find off of HWY 19 – the Duval Mine Road exit. First right turn... More

This place is somewhat unique in that they also have a buffet, something I've never seen in a Mexican restaurant. On the day we were there, they were stopping the buffet for the day, so we ordered a la carte, as usual, which was very good! It would have been interesting to try the buffet. The wait staff were extremely... More

We really thought we could possibly find a gem to enjoy some Mexican food this close to Mexico. Not so much! Chicken enchilada was marginally tasteless and the carne asada enchilada was killed by too much salt. They had a Sunday buffet that looked a bit rough and picked over. On second thought, I'd wished we'd just hit the Taco... More

We had a party of 7 and everyone enjoyed their lunches. Nice atmosphere and clean. I had the banderas enchiladas, 3 different filling and sauces. I had to take a carry out box there was so much. Very nice staff.

Thank toeman
