When I want Mexican food like I have been used to for many years, I go to El Patio. The place is small and mostly crowded at lunch - so go early! Fried tacos, sopa, beans, torts. Heaven!

Always get the puffy tacos, the fried corn shell is sooo good. Chips and salsa is also good too. The tamales are pretty good too!

My favorite place with no frill but great tacos. Try the fried flour shredded beef tacos. The best in town

My wife started eating here sometime back and talked about how good it is. We started going here about every other month since (would prob. be more if we were closer). My favorite is the puffy taco dinner. The fried fluffy corn dough is so good. I also like the tamales. My wife always gets the chili relleno.

Limited space so when they're busy they want to turn tables. That means few niceties, but still good food. When it's slower the service is fine, if unprofessional. If you want ambience, go elsewhere but for decent Mexican at a reasonable price it works.

Where do I start with why you should go anywhere else. No greeting from staff or seat yourself sign when you walk in to this dinky place. Watch others sit down at a dirty table and follow suit. Have the staff clear the table and spray cleaner in your direction and wipe the table with the same rag that lays... More

Mexican food from generations of good cooks. Fast and friendly service. Homey decor. Best dipping sauces in Wichita.
