I first fell for Pat's milkshakes in the 80s when I attended ENMU. Thirty plus years later, and they are still as delicious as I remembered. The portions are generous and the prices are good. This is a walk-up establishment, no dine-in or bathrooms on site. In addition to milkshakes they have a good burger menu. Make room for a... More

The peanut butter milkshake is awesome. They use actual peanut butter, not that cheap flavoring some people use. The twin cronnie is actually pretty tasty too.

If you like good fashion local eating, don't miss Pat's. Especially the milk shakes, peanut butter and banana nut are my favorites. And the green chili cheeseburgers are the best!!!

I left New Mexico in 2004 and have often dreamed about walking over to Pat's from the old junior high and getting shakes and a burger. Place was just as amazing as I remember. 10/10

I love pats peanut butter shake!! It is one of my favorites. It's thick and delicious. The green chili cheese hamburger is also a must. Pats is a drive up and get down to order. No place to sit and eat but has that old fashion feel.

This is the spot for quick take-out fare and the peanut butter shake is everyone's favorite. This used to be the go-to place for college kids, and it still draws young people and locals alike.

Pat's is a legacy of Portales. I am 70 years old, born and raised just outside Goober Gulch and I can't remember when Pat's was not there. Consistent, can't beat the green chile cheese burger.
