We go about once a week. The fajita nachos are great. The Sunday Brunch is very good and reasonably priced.

Went there for dinner with my husband. I ordered the burrito California. It said it was a giant burrito. They weren't kidding. It was ginormous! But soooo good! It was delicious. Our waiter Johnny was very sweet and very attentive. We're only down here for the weekend but hopefully we'll be back again before we leave!

I really like all of the food choices they have and especially the Sunday lunch buffet. There are lots of good choices on the bar and on the menu.

Looking for a good Mexican restaurant in the Myrtle Beach area we decided to try El Patio. The service was good, the food was good and the prices reasonable. This is better than most we have tried in the area but I can not rate it more than average. Still looking for THE MEXICAN RESTAURANT in the area that is.

This was my first time to eat here and I was very pleased to have tried it. This place has a Sunday buffet that is well forth the stop at $12.99. Great selection of various dishes of different heat varieties. Food items were replenished when low so that you do not have to wait. 3 different types of fajitas, enchiladas... More

If you pass this place without stopping, you are totally missing out. Some of the best Mexican food you'll ever have! The drinks are amazing. Staff is incredibly friendly. I love the quesadilla grande and any of their shrimp dishes. We have to stop every time we go to the beach. El Patio is great for the whole family!

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant the Conway area. They recently remodeled the inside and outside of the restaurant. The service is fast and friendly. There is a very large menu selection. Chips and salsa are brought to the table, normally before the drinks are even ordered. There are plenty of selections for the patrons not desiring Mexican food, for... More

My family of 3 ordered. Mine and my husbands came out then 20 minutes later out daughters came out. The burritos (we thought would be loaded like any normal one) only came with meat and cheese. It was apparently 1.79 for all the other toppings. If you changed anything in the platter it cost more. We will NOT be back.
