Best if you just drink here, food not all that great. Located near 5th ave shops in touristy Scottsdale. Got to town late, stopped, ate, drank, will not return (except for a packer game)

I have never left a one-star review, and if it was possible to leave zero stars I would do that for Loco Patron. This is the most laughable "business" I have ever been to. We visited Scottsdale and stopped into Loco Patron. We sat at the bar for a while and were ultimately greeted by the bartender who took our... More

I love shrimp ceviche... and Loco Patron makes it perfect! Great happy hour deals, and on some nights a live DJ.

Wanted some good Mexican food and sorry this is not the place. Way too spicy -could not even eat the enchiladas . Super disappointed. Chips were greasy and not good. The sauce to dip was fresh and good. Just not much good about this place.

Our family of seven stopped here for lunch while shopping in downtown Scottsdale. Two of us got the award winning crispy tacos, which were excellent, and two got the Taco Salads. I don't recall what their other orders were, but they cleaned their plates. The Taco Salad could literally feed two to three people. They were huge!! A very friendly... More

My wife & I met friends here for Happy Hour and Taco Tuesday. The food was good and reasonably price. The waitress was helpful and efficient. We sat inside but the outside seating area looked great. The venue is a little loud. Our friends are regulars at Taco Tuesday at Loco Patron. We'll be back too.

Visited this place on NFL playoff Sunday. There was a big crowd of Steelers and Green Bay fans both inside and out. The atmosphere was awesome for sports fans. The margaritas, chips/salsa/queso was pretty average. This is definitely a cool hangout spot, cool wait staff, and the front patio is great.

Poor. Waitress got the order wrong. The cook refused to correct frying a shell verses the soft shell we did not order. Food was just ok.

From beef & chicken to mahi mahi & lobster, they are terrific. The presentation, in upright stainless taco holders, is beautiful making them easy to consume! The margaritas are good - even observed the Patron margarita being served in a reconstructed Patron bottle at the next table. The smashed potatoes were crisp on the outside, and delicately fluffy on the... More
