“Great find!”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Thanks to the reviews and not able to get a reservation at Nicks, we had dinner at Los Patios. We were glad that we did as we loved our meal and the price. Hubby had the fish tacos and I had the seafood enchilada a la carte. The salsa is fresh and per another review, we asked for their home made hot sauce, which had a kick to it. Watch out for the margaritas - you will want more than one!

“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

This place is not on the main thoroughfare, but tucked off of Ave Palizada in the Old City Plaza. The place, from the outside is not much to look at, but it makes up for that with the food an service. Ask for Tony, he was very friendly and attentive and took very good care of us. They make their tortillas, fresh, right there in front of the restaurant and hand them to you as soon as they are ready, hot and fresh! You are served these homemade tortillas with delicious salsa while you wait for your meal. The meal portions are huge! And the prices are very reasonable. I love tamales and there are only a few places that make them the way I like them.. This place did it right. Sweet and moist. I had the carnitas tamales, make sure you try those! We loved this place and will definitely return.

“Real Mexico”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Their enchiladas are delicioso and the atmosphere intimate. It looks very authenticically Mexico with bright colors and Mexican decor. If it is in the kitchen, they can make it for you.
