Their carne asada is the best around. Ditto for the potato tacos. The restaurant is cash only so be prepared. If you are calling in orders for take out the place is always busy and the phone will ring for several minutes before being answered. Patty's has been around a long time and continues to be a local favorite. This... More

Back to Patty's again, upon husband's request, what a surprise! Patty is now our go-to place for burritos in Claremont. We finally decided that their carne asada is our favorite, except I like it with just cheese and hubby likes it with beans and no cheese. The tomato and cilantro inside made it perfect together with their salsa. I would... More

As I lived in Claremont for years, my family has been enjoying this food since it was Juanita's on Foothill. The sisters decided to have their own store, so Patty's was born. The ladies here are most efficient friendly and helpful. The limited menu helps to keep the food hot fresh and very affordable. The food is all homemade. The... More

This little Mexican restaurant pumps out great, simple Mexican food. Homemade tortillas offers a great start to whatever you order.

Were it not for the good taste and fair prices of their food, I would not return. Flavor and quality is consistently good. It would be nice, though, if they put their customers' comfort up front --- they need to have someone dedicated to answering phones and ringing up orders. They are soooo slow and disorganized, and they still take... More

If you want no-frills but delicious Mexican food, try Patty's. You can watch the flour tortillas being made. Minimal bare-bones seating, and there is most always a line out the door of this tiny eatery. Count on a 20+ minute wait during rush times. Try calling ahead, but if it gets really busy, they don't answer the phone. However, well... More

Patty's is still going strong with a line out the door for lunch. Great, inexpensive Mexican food. I have never had anything I haven't loved. Little bit of a wait for the food, they are not super fast but, worth the wait.

If you want fantastic authentic Mexican food and watch your tortillas being made, go there. Small no frills seating or take out. Bring cash, no credit cards accepted. I'm addicted to their potato tacos!

Patty's is an institution in many ways in Claremont. If you are even remotely close to Claremont during the week, make sure to swing by Patty's for a burrito that will change your life. This is a small, hole-in-the-wall type of place that can be easily passed up if you don't know. The tortillas are handmade and then stuffed with... More

Cash only! Homemade tortillas on every order! The potato tacos are the best I have ever had anywhere. Wife loves the cheese quesadilla, and she doesn't mess around with quesadillas just anywhere, no...she sends me to Patty's in earnest. The shredded beef burritos are large and in charge, but sometimes I switch up for a chicken or chile verde burrito... More
