Has been a while since i ate here and decided to take wife for her birthday today. First thing that I noticed was the price hikes across the board but it didn't matter because it was a special occasion. They brought bean dip and salsa to the table that was too salty to even eat. I ordered a chalupa entree and my wife a Burrito Mexicana. When my food arrived all it consisted of was a few beans, bland rice, and what appeared to be a tostada with a few beans, lettuce, and guac. Everything was bland and for quality, the dollar menu at the local taco fast food joint has a $1 tostada that tastes 100 time better than the food served today at El Patio Did not feel the I ordered was authenic Mexican cuisine and I feel that I could have opened a can of refried beans and it been the same. Will not patronize again nor would I recommend this establishment to anyone. Too many alternatives to pay for bland food at inflated prices.
