I agree with Cat that it was not possible to leave without a smile on my face! Walking out of Los Patios, I felt like I was leaving a good friend's house, as that is how the owner, Carlos, makes everyone feel. I love going to a restaurant and feeling like the people who work there are excited that I am there. Carlos and his wait staff get 6 stars for sure.
Ordering was the best experience. With each selection we made, the waiter responded to let us know if we had made good decisions. He grunted, "Oooh, yes," when I ordered the chicken fajitas, telling me that they were great. He murmured, "Very nice," when my husband ordered the carne asada special.
The food was really good. Most of the meals come with soup or a salad. The chicken soup was fabulous. Very fresh and healthy. The salad was great as well, with a nice homemade cilantro dressing. The lady at the table next to ours couldn't stop talking about hers!
The fajitas were great. Very fresh again, not greasy or buttery at all. The meat was a great quality and the bell peppers and onions were plentiful. It would have fed two or three people for sure. My only complaint were the tortillas. With everything so fresh and obviously homemade, I was surprised that the tortillas seemed like a mid grade brand from the store. I decided to forego them so that I could eat more of the good stuff before getting full!
The atmosphere is special. It is adorable and classy, even down to the chairs. The music selection was great, really got us in a great mood.
We had the entertainment coupon, which was for a buy one, get one free up to $11.00, but Carlos just comped the entire second meal. Very nice, and we weren't expecting it.
I would return in a heartbeat, and next time I will bring friends! Go, you will not be disappointed.
