It took us FAR too long to visit El Patron for the first time. When we finally did we were kicking ourselves that such a great place was literally down the street! Very friendly staff! Great food! Affordable prices! Very nice atmosphere! What more could...More

Depending on which side of town I am on this is one of my 2 go to Mexican places. I rarely order much to eat because the chips, salsa and bean dip are amazing! I love the Nachos too!

Nice place in Reseda. Inexpensive drinks--$5 house margaritas. Consistently good service. Haven't had a bad meal. Sometimes a wait but call ahead.

Authentic Mexican food with a touch of California fusion. Great bar and festive atmosphere that bring Mexico to your doorstep. The chefs are meticulous in their preparation and presentation of food.

We've stopped at El Patron a couple different times and we've been equally pleased each time. Some of the best corn tortillas I've had, good bartenders and great food for a fair price. We'll definitely visit again in the future.

There's nothing glaringly awful about El Patron. This is a three-star review, but it's not a smackdown. My wife and I have been twice, and we'll probably go again. You'd like it, too. Service is friendly enough, if a teensy bit on the slow side....More

This place is fun, inexpensive, and best of all very good food and drinks. They start you with chips and salsa AND a hot bean dip which already separates them from the competition. The dip is excellent. The margaritas delicious and the service fast and...More
