El Patio Waterford Twp Mexican restaurant review, pics, and menu info. El Patio serves authentic Mexican food at 3 Metro Detroit MI Locations. Family owned,
the El Patio staff is great. And they offer some very competitive prices too. I went during lunch time and couldn’t believe how affordable the lunch prices are. Plus, you get the complimentary homemade chips and salsa. I was surprised I could get made-to-order Mexican food for cheaper than I could get at Q-Doba and faster than I could get at McDonalds.

I typically judge the chips and salsa served at Mexican restaurants and the quality has me predicting what the food will be like once it’s served. At El Patio, the chips and salsa were really good. The salsa was more pureed than chunky and had a good spicy kick. The chips had a homemade taste and nothing commercial about it. I can never find a store bought chip that compares to the restaurant ones. Luckily, El Patio sells theirs by the small, medium, or large sized bags.
We started with the bean and cheese Nachos appetizer and it was a little on the low end in terms of quantity, but still tasty with a creamy white cheese sauce.
For an entree I had a chimichanga (topped with the same white cheese sauce) a guacamole salad (a scoop of fresh guac atop a bed of lettuce and diced tomatoes) and rice all for a very affordable price.
El Patio Waterford is not an extravagant restaurant. It’s completely casual and somewhat of a diner-style with a Mexican touch in its decor.
Its atmosphere is suitable for anyone. We saw lots of families, kids, couples, and even some local officers out for a quick bite to eat. The menu is both expansive and affordable. El Patio features more than 20 dinnertime combo plate choices. They have an extensive kid’s menu where dishes are very cheap.
The El Patio Waterford location does not serve alcohol, but the Farmington Hills location has a full bar.
