Senor Patron

GRADE: D

Food – It was a jam packed work day of meetings and we were running from place to place. When we decided we needed a quick bite to eat, this was the closest place. I just ordered a lunch special that included two tacos, rice, and beans. I believe the best Mexican is cheap Mexican but this was just not good. I’d honestly rather eat Taco Bell than come back here. The beef was not real beef. It was very poor quality. The taco shells were right on the verge of going stale. The rice and beans didn’t taste so bad, but if you have ever had something that looks so awful before you eat that you can’t enjoy it even if the taste is alright, then you know my experience with the rice and beans. There is nothing really to say other than it just wasn’t good. Food gets a D

Ambiance – It actually looked pretty cool in here. They did a great job with the ambiance. However, I think it gives off the wrong expectations. The whole ambiance makes me think it’s going to be a more upscale Mexican joint. I was thinking I should be paying $15+ for an entrée here, not $7. While it’s a beautiful place, it doesn’t fit the food or menu. Ambiance gets a C

Service – No complaints about the service here. Nothing to brag about either. The server got everything to us on time but didn’t interact with us much beyond asking what we wanted and bring it to us. Service gets a B-

Price/Quality – Prices were decently cheap for lunch. They had 4 specials for $7.50 which wouldn’t be a bad price had the food been good. Like I have covered already there really isn’t a price that would justify the food I received. Price/Quality get a D

Uniqueness – Nothing really good to say about my experience here. The only thing that somewhat resembled uniqueness would be the décor, but it doesn’t fit the cheap Mexican menu they give you.  It may be unique but certainly isn’t a positive. I just don’t see myself ever coming back here.  Uniqueness gets an F

    I goto Senor Patron once a week for the past 9 months. I love the food and service here. The quality is good and they are consistent. This review doesn’t add up. Yelp, Urbanspoon, tripadvisor, facebook all have this restaurant at least 4 to 4.5 out of 5 stars. This review will not stop me from going here.

      No restaurant is perfect 100% of the time. Even the best restaurants provide a poor experience for some patron every once in a while. My intention is never to steer someone to or from restaurants. I started blogging because most restaurants have no real reviews from people that talk about their experience indepth. Even most other bloggers spend half their blog talking about how they found the place or the conversation they had with their date and gives me little of their actual experience there. I just wanted to write to give others what I always looked for, an honest account of my experience with a place. I just didn’t especially enjoy my time here and was just honest about that.
