Out of all the Mexican restaurants in McAlester I choose Patron's. The staff is always friendly, food has always been good and prices are very reasonable. Service can be slow at times.

First of all, the initial smell when you walk into this establishment should've been a quick indication that I might've needed to choose a different restaurant. It literally smelled like an old, dirty motel. We decided to stay, and give it a chance....next time I'll go with my first instinct. The food was terrible. The cheese sauce tasted like what... More

We have stopped at this restaurant several times on our way to Dallas since there are not very many good places to eat between our home and Dallas. We used to love it. I don't know what happened but the food was awful. Cheese dip wasn't bad but the tamales, enchiladas, and rice had no flavor and the beans were... More

First time here. Looked it up on line. This place is great. The food was hot, fresh, seasoned just right and a good price value. There is no reason to not eat here that I could find.

A cousin who lives in this town recommended this restaurant. We were there on a Sunday, and they do not serve drinks (ex, margaritas) on Sundays. Only beer. Complimentary chips and salsa good. We both had a smothered bean burrito with cheese, lettuce, tomato and green chili sauce. Both drank waters. Our total bill was less than $10. Wow. This... More

Stopped on our way to Dallas for a quick lunch. My son had tortilla soup and I had spinach enchiladas. Both were very good. I also had a margarita which was quite good. I would eat here again. The place was quite busy.

We visited Patron on a Sunday for lunch while in route to Dallas. Street Tacos" were just as you want them to be. The salsa was fresh, the chips warm and crispy. So why didn't I go 5 stars, well you have to have a nice bathroom in my book to earn 5 stars...and well the women's rest room was... More

I got the "Lola Platter" and would highly recommend it. It comes on two huge plates for $10. I cant eat it all in one setting but they will box it up for you. I will be back.

To go order for 15 in less than an hour, even before the store was open for business? Sure! No problem! Called at 10:30 and asked for Chicken & Beef Fajitas to go for a party of 15. The restaurant opens at 11:00. Could they help us on such a short notice? YOU BET!! Beef & Chicken Fajitas, fresh in... More
