Our first time at El Patio in a long time. We ordered the molcajete de panela as an appetizer and the stuffed chicken entree with Cream cheese wrapped in bacon. The food was good but my chicken was steamed a little too long. Roberto Muro, our server, was perfectly attentive and perceptive. He made the experience so we will return.

This place is only worth it for the mariachi show, which starts at 3pm. The problem is the food because is just bad. So go there and get something basic to eat and drink while you enjoy the show.

Clients brought me here for lunch. Large patio with a beautiful flower-adorned waterfall in the centre of an open courtyard.

Food was traditional Mexican and the pork... More

Had a great time. Had a special table so we could watch the mariachi band and flamingo dancers. It was my birthday and they really went all out. The food was very good and the drinks were great.

Our friend took us here and we sure are glad he did! There was a whole variety of traditional foods offered. From made to order eggs to quesadillas to all other kinds of food. Very reasonably priced and helpful staff made this stop well worth it. Job well done.

The food looked very good but we had just eaten when we heard the Mariachi band--all women! So we went in and had some coffee. They were gracious and served us even though most patrons were there for lunch. A real treat.

We ate here twice this month. El Patio offered a New Year's Day afternoon Lunch Buffet as well as their regular morning breakfast buffet. Each buffet had a wide selection from which to choose. Enjoyed the patio setting, service and food. It would be even a better value for meat eaters.

The was our second place went in the day for lunch and it was awesome. It is one of the top 5 places in Tlaquepaque, should be in the top 2. Great service! Great food and they made our family feel welcome. I can't wait to come again while we visit friends and family. We really enjoyed the Mexican plate... More
