“Unsanitary, don't eat there”
Review of Mercedes

Mercedes
Ranked #6 of 8 Restaurants in Patagonia
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

One of the most disgusting restaurants I've ever seen. The chef doesn't wear a hat or gloves to prepare the food. The wait staff don't use gloves or utensils but their HANDS to serve the (stale) chips and salsa (which was bland), there was no toilet paper or paper towels in the bathroom, which had a broken window. The dining room had light bulbs that were out, and scuff marks on the walls. Both plates were chipped, and the silverware didn't match.
Most food is cooked in advance, the microwave kept going off. I don't know how they stay on business, as we were the only customers there on a Saturday night.

We were seeking a place for breakfast as we were heading towards Nogales. Mercedes' front patio area looked inviting (and dog-friendly) and we had a good breakfast there (great pancakes!). The server was very friendly and food was served quickly, in spite of the patio tables all being occupied. A nice meal overall!

Mercedes is located on the north side of the town proper, just across from the court house. It offers pretty decent Mexican food. When one sees Spanish-speaking folks going into a Mexican restaurant, that is a pretty good tip off that what is inside is genuine. There is inside dining and patio dining. The waitress/cashier was bilingual and very courteous. We enjoyed our meal there.

Went for lunch yesterday after birding all morning. Service was quick and friendly. I had Chiles Relenos and wife had green chile hamburger. Mine was a hit, very good. Hers was a miss, seemed like a frozen patty. Chips and salsa were also very good, if a little too spicy for the wife. We would definitely try again, but stick to Mexican cuisine.

Unpretentious basic Mexican food in an informal setting with outdoor seating - menudo is satisfying and other dishes are 'standard' and reasonably executed; service is fine and prices are modest. What you see is what you get and consistent; we have been back several times.
