Client Testimonials

This place is great if your looking for something convenient! They have a drive thru, which I’ve visited many times although the line can be long at times. I’m actually writing this while I wait in line for my food but it beats having to actually get out and socialize.

The food is decent and the portion size is pretty good. I’d recommend the shrimp burrito, and well everything I’ve eaten here has been satisfying. The prices aren’t too bad and I’ve never had an order messed up. All around pretty good place to eat!

There is honestly nothing bad I can say about El Patio. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write this review. We’ve lived in Woodland for 4 years, and have continuously eaten here, and have never had any issues. Aside from the occasional long wait in the drive thru, everything about this place is great!

I have tried many items from the menu, including breakfast. Everything is fresh and taste very authentic. They also have the best hot sauce on the side. In my opinion. And their prices are very reasonable.

I also love the friendly people there. The customer service is amazing.

I love this place. Today, I was distracted and rolled right past where you place your order while waiting in a line of traffic. I felt completely stupid. I explained to the girl that I would just go through the line again. Nope she said just place the order, pull to the side and they delivered it car side. Excellent customer service and excellent food.

Awesome carnitas and carne asada. Authentic, fresh made corn tortillas, salsas, etc. Quick, easy and awesome.

We eat here at least once a week, we like it that much! We try to stick to what we like though, and don’t venture off of that, however when we do, we add another favorite to our list which makes it hard to choose when we go.

The crispy beef tacos are the best I’ve found in town. The beef is tender and we’ll seasoned. I like to add sour cream and drench them in salsa for extra flavor. Also can’t go wrong with the beef taquitos since they’re pretty much the same as the tacos. I just wish they’d add guacamole to those. I keep forgetting to add it.

The carne asada fries and the California burrito are other favorites as are the carnitas soft taco (homemade tortilla!).

Portions are good for the price.

I have been coming to this place over the past 8 years. Over that time they have remodeled, but their food has stayed great. I usually eat most of the grilled peppers with my meal….and at times eaten half of them……sorry they are that good. If you every pass through Woodland, this is a meal stop you should visit.


This place is amazing. Our hospital always orders from them and they are always so good to us. Alex the manager really knows what good customer service is all about. Not to mention the food is very good. Thanks El Patio for taking care of us!

Cute place. Yummy food. Reasonably priced. Nice and quick service. I ordered the carne asada fries per other reviews I read, and I’m so happy i did. They were super yummy! I would recommend this place.

El patio use to be the go to spot. Although I do feel the quality has gone down, I still do love the breakfast burrito

Huge shout out to the team at El Patio for an amazing catering pick up on Saturday! From the first message I sent to their Facebook page with prompt response to the pick up of the fresh, delicious and generous portions food on Saturday the whole experience was exceptional. The manager, Alex, was professional, courteous, thoughtful and sensitive of our needs and requests. I recommend their service’s to anyone. First class act

Lynne K.

This was our first time to El Patio and the service was great, very quick and the food tasted amazing. We had heard lots of good things about them from others and decided to finally try out their food. Not long after we arrived the restaurant filled up confirming how great it is. We will definitely be coming back and appreciate the great service!

Great food. Great price. Nice ambiance without being garish. AC is much too cold (though it was 80 today after weeks of 90s and 100s).
I had the chicken enchilada and beef tamale combo. The tamal was really good and the chicken enchilada was super, super good.


I come here with my boyfriend for the super tasty carne asada fries and they never disappoint! Also the staff is nice and the place is pretty clean. Great place and tasty food. The pricing is okay too. Not super cheap but not super expensive.

Eat indoor/outdoor and drive through for take out. Mexican food, very good. Very plain, simple setting. Can be loud inside.

Cheryl Burns

Don’t let the drive through fool you! This place has only Mexican food I have found this far North that can even approach what I know from San Diego and Mexico itself. That is saying a lot!

Malik Bennett

I am from San Diego where there is good Mexico food. This place is as good as most places I have been in in southern California

Dean Sipes

My favorite place for tacos, burritos, and salsa. This review is long overdue, as I’ve been coming here for more than 10 years. The beef crispy tacos are definitely my favorite, and I always have trouble choosing what to get because everything is so good. The breakfast burrito is also fantastic, a great way to start a day or a trip.
The salsa is the cherry on top, it’s delicious, it’s thin, and it has just enough spice to flavor ratio to make you crave it all the time.


I’ve lived here in Woodland all my life and I would have to say that El Patio is by far the best Mexican restaurant. They have a great menu but their CARNE ASADA FRIES are the best. My whole family loves this place.

teresa jimenez

My favorite place for a breakfast burrito in the Sacramento area. Everything on their menu is unbeatable and delicious. The machaca breakfast burrito is great because it’s not a complete sloppy and wet mess. It’s easy to eat without dripping it everywhere while still being moist. Definitely a family favorite!

Sabrina Laffan

Awesome little place that is as clean and organized as a well run chain while maintaining the quality and service of a family run independent restaurant.

Theo Buckendorf

Good Mexican restaurant the food is tasty and prices are OK, worth it to visit.

arturo daniel gonzalez caire

Great food with good prices. The drive thru can get backed up so keep this in mind. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.


Crispy chicken tacos n hot sauce is melt in your mouth delicious

Peggy Jahn

Breakfast Burritos are the best here. Little slow while going through the drive thru, but completely worth it.
breakfast is served all day, so if you are wanting breakfast, you can get it here.

Dustin Carter
