This was the most awesome meal I have had in years! The most fresh, delicious seafood! And the service was impeccable! I have never had such attentive, amazing service, our waiter "Tony" was amazing, almost knowing what we needed before we did :D We ordered the appetizer, "La Vela", which was a plate of several ceviches, shrimp, calamari, fish, octopus, and fresh oysters, it was amazing!! Then we had a large shrimp cocktail, and I've had plenty of them, but this was divine!! The sauce was a delight and the shrimp was so clean and fresh. Overall, if I lived there I would eat there everyday!! Oh and the chips for the chips and salsa were the best chips I have ever eaten, thick and wonderful. And wonderful, perfect mojitos! Best meal EVER!!! In gratitude that we found it!
El Pato has many locations and has become a staple for many people. The tortillas from El Pato can't be beat and if you are looking for great tacos and mexican food with fast food expediency and price, go to El Pato. You must try the guisado taco, it is very delicious and has tons of flavor.

I will never get tamales from El pato again. DISGUSTING!!!!!
The food is delicious, the atmosphere is always friendly. The restaurant is extremely great to bring the family or go alone! The food is authentic and reminds me of food my grandma used to make. The staff always gives great service and go the extra mile to make sure I'm satisfied. I highly recommend to anyway who wants a bite!
I just love the atmosphere my wife really enjoyed the drinks and I love the music great place and delicious food, highly recommended.
Fantastic place to eat! Very friendly people...outstanding and authentic Mexican food...great environment!
More filling inside less tortilla outside. Order ahead by phone for quick pickup. Coffee too expensive.
Muy bien la forma que tratan ala clientela, y las gorditas están muy deliciosas.

Tratan vien ala clientela y las gorditas estan muy ricas.
