My husband and I ate here after searching for a Mexican restaurant in Cornelia. We LOVED this place! We wish we lived closer so we could return often! This place has authentic Mexican food! The free chips and salsa were addicting! I loved the salsa! I ordered a shrimp taco salad. It was very large! There were over 7 shrimp... More

This place is a cut above the rest of the Mexican food places I've ate at around here. The salsa is killer and the margaritas are great. The food is always fresh and hot and they seem to bend over backwards to please you.

Second time eating here and the food and service were just absolutely superb. Had a good watchful waiter and didn't really have to ask for anything. Huge dinner portions with a fresh taste to the salsa and other sides.

Looking for a different Mexican restaurant than what I've tried before in Cornelia -found it , of course with the help of TripAdvisor ( who has never led us wrong but once). Food and margaritas were great! Will be back!

I had tamales at my recent visit. They were great as all the food I have had at El Patron. The service is fast and friendly. Good size portions.

For a lunch break this place is great. Fast friendly service and I love their fajitas. Servings are large so don't over-order. Salsa is not spicy so its good for kids as well.

We stopped here to eat some Mexican food. Big mistake. The salsa was tomato sauce with some onions etc in it. Tasted just like tomato sauce, beans were watered down. Over all food was tasteless and cheap tasting

This restaurant is a local favorite for the locals here in Cornelia. The food is good and service is usually good--there was only one time we sat for a long time (over 20 minutes) to have our order taken. It was very bad that night, but they did not charge us for our food. The restaurant is clean and does... More

Got a table very quick. We had a friendly server who got our drinks quick. We had a large table of people. We waited two hours for our food. When our food arrived everyone at the table had cold food. We asked for the manager and the cook stated he was the manger where he rudely asked what was wrong... More
