Come by El Patron Mexican Restaurant and Cantina Bar! We offer the best margaritas in town with delicious food and excellent service!
It has been a few years since I visited the restaurant that was previously in this location- Los Tres Reales. El Patron has greatly improved the decor and ambiance. It is a very large restaurant with mostly booths in the main dining room. It was moderately busy on a Monday evening. The service was very good and many employees stopped by our table to make sure we enjoyed the food and to let us know they were glad we chose to eat there. I probably made a poor menu choice - carne asada with black beans and Mexican rice. My daughterâs meal looked awesome - camarones alla crema. Her boyfriend had the green enchiladas. The table salsa is really good and so are the chips. They also serve a good bean dip with the chips. The black beans were too salty for me - I didnât notice it when I mixed them with the rice - but by themselves the salt was very noticeable. The carne asada came with lightly grilled onions and a nice mix of lettuce, tomatoes, onions and cilantro. You have a choice of white rice or Mexican rice and you can choose refried beans, black beans, or the olla beans, which I think are close to the bean dip served with the chips. You can also sub steamed vegetables or a small salad for the beans and rice for a very small extra charge. It is great to have those options. We had the churros for dessert - very good with strawberry filling and whipped cream for dipping. I would return - but Iâll avoid the black beans and carne asada next time.

I stumbled over this restaurant while visiting the nearby Corvallis Outlet store. I had pretty much given up on Mexican food in Corvallis. I've been to Mexico many times and lived in Sonoma County for years so I know good Mexican food. That day I had a Carnitas soft taco. Wow, the best soft taco I've had in Corvallis. I went back the next night and ordered a Torta to go. Great torta. And best of all, they give you chips and salsa on take out orders. This is the only Mexican restaurant I have found that includes free chips and salsa. And the chips were great!

I really like their Enchiladas Verdes. They're pretty spicy, which seems to be a rare thing to find at the other Mexican restaurants in town. I've been multiple times to the La Rockita on Western and the one on Kings and they're both pretty good. The one on Western seems to be more of a place where people go to get takeout (though I have eaten there as well) and you order at the counter rather than from a server. The Kings one is a sit down restaurant with chips, salsa, and your standard American-Mexican feel.

Seven of us ( included three kids) arrived on a Tuesday night and were seated right away. Our cheerful host took our drink order within minutes and our dinners arrived not long after we ordered. The fajitas arrived sizzling and delicious. The fish tacos were tasty as were all the other meals. The restaurant is reminiscent of one in Cancun, colorful and decorated in Mexican art. The owner is a supporter of the city's local sports teams. There are lots of trophies for soccer, baseball, etc. displayed.

Elegant yet inviting dining featuring a Latin-inspired menu paired with offerings from the NW, a food-friendly wine list, and original cocktails.
Our recent meal here (of three in the past year or so) was, frankly, a sad disappointment. Service was way off -- and this was a party of 5 adults for dinner at 6.00 on a not-jam-packed Saturday. Earlier meals nicely "exceeded expectations" but this one did not. Some nice items on the menu, but here were the problems. Service was not up to par -- first, an entree order of halibut was "out" (and we ordered quite shortly after arriving at 6.00 pm), so then my son instead ordered Grilled Flat Iron Steak (sounded good: Flat iron beef rubbed with mild jalapeÃ±o adobo, served with pastel azteca, blackberry mustard, roasted garlic aioli, cilantro, ensalada de nopales) done medium well . . . but that didn't come . . . finally what arrived was a different cut of beef entirely. All our entrees were rather delayed, so my son wisely took what was in front of him . . . while my brother's ordering two appetizers for his entree made him sit for quite a while with not much on his plate. Worse of the evening was the dreadful Cauliflower 'Chorizo' and Potato Flautas -- ***AVOID*** this item at all costs. Flour tortillas ought to have warned me off; insipid red-colored filling, and not much of that, so mostly flour tortilla ; some thin gruel with diced potato -- an insult for anyone needing a vegetarian/vegan meal. I notice other reviews indicating more attention by the management is certainly needed (âNot their best showingâ). Please improve -- Corvallis needs a really good fancy restaurant. We'll wait until things improve.
