    Solid Midwest-style tex-mex. Very inexpensive. Sangria is good. Don't come here expecting authentic Mexican food though.

    This was the first time I didn't leave a tip. The service was slow. Our waittress checked on us once in 45 min. The taco.shells were old & only had canned chicken in them. Nachos were NOT FILLING.

    The patio at El Patio is so quaint and romantic with gorgeous flower baskets everywhere you look. Try a glass of sangria. You won't be sorry!

    Don't forget the chocolate cake. It is a best kept secret in Des Moines

    The owners were great to us, but the service was slow as sin. If you're looking for a good Mexican place with your quick service, this isn't the place. Food didn't make up for the service.

    Cheese Dip is great. Try the Blue Marg's. Be careful, they may just sneak up on you.
