After reading some other reviews and it's proximity to our lodging we decided to give La Fiesta Patio a try. Walking in, it wasn't the most appealing, didn't appear to be the most clean place I've visited and a rather domineering woman sitting behind a counter who said "sit anywhere".. We found a table, the server was wonderful and very... More

The Mexican food there is no better or worse than most others, except that the chile sauce on the enchiladas is great. The main reason we love it is the outstanding chicken tortilla soup and the brown rice. Really good crispy beef tacos. Been eating there for nearly 12 years.

One of my top favorite places for a long time! Healthier Tex-Mex with friendly service in a comfortable atmosphere :) Enchiladas, salads, puffy tacos, tortilla soup- all wonderful!! And the lunch specials are a steal. Do yourself a favor & have some yummy chips & salsa here soon.

Patio is a healthier alternative to mexican food. So it does taste different, there is no fat added to the beans, they are just seasoned mashed beany goodness and You can request sprouts in place of lettuce, the rice is brown rice, not white.. etc. I hold the standard of all puffy tacos to Patio.. they really are the best,...

Never been here. We stopped in for lunch. It is a very colorful restaurant. Service was fast and friendly. Well, if they are famous for Puffy's taco's, let's give them a try. They were excellent. Delicious. This is a fun restaurant. Good food and good service. Prices reasonable. Give this restaurant a try
