The food is great and there is lots of it. We could hardly eat all of it. Fast friendly service. We will go again.

Fairly priced/ good value. Unpretentious yes, plain Jane yes, yet where in the Verde Valley can you order a Triple Combination and in my case a Chile relleno/Cheese Enchilada and a ground beef taco plus a generous portion of rice and beans for under $10 bucks? Where ? Just here ! The plate of food was served hot, plenty of... More

Service was not the greatest either. Cleanliness gets a 4 out of 10. The waitress never came back and chose to argue with me instead of try to make it right. I won't be going back

On 10-26-16, during my latest camping trip in the area, I tried out yet another Mexican restaurant for lunch in Cottonwood. This is El Patio, a little place tucked into the Safeway shopping center. Once again I chose well. I had a combo plate of beef enchilada, taco, rice and beans, chips and salsa, plus ice tea, for a remarkably... More

We stumbled onto this place quite by accident and we're glad we did. If "ambiance" is important to you, this may not be the place for you. BUT, if great authenic Mexican food at reasonable prices with excellent service is what you're looking for, look no further. We'll definitely be returning and taking family and friends with us! Can't wait... More

On our way back from Jerome, we stumbled upon this great place. Although not much to look at, the food at El patio was terrific! The best chile relleno that I have had since we left El Paso. The chicken enchilada and taquitos were also outstanding. The service was excellent. We are looking forward to returning!

El Patio is a hidden gem in Cottonwood!!! It's at the east end of the Safeway plaza, we eat here all the time and have never had a mediocre meal, it's always fantastic. I highly reccomend them.
