“Favorite So Far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

Best ground beef enchaladas I've had in a long time. Hubby's chile verde burrito was the best he's had so far. I tasted and agree. The service couldn't have been better. The most attentive staff we've ever seen. They were not there constantly hovering, as the restaurant was pretty busy, but when a staff member went by and saw that we might need something, it was taken care of. Next time will try a half "Flying Saucer" which is a fried flour tortilla topped with your choice of meat, lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream. There was probably more, but that is what I could see being served to another diner. We will definitely return.

“Authentic”

I would prefer to eat at El Patios than any other Mexican restaurants in Chula Vista. That is one thing we have an abundance of, is Mexican Restaurants.
