    Nice people…

    … but the patio is not open in early March. I would call ahead to make sure. That said, SUPER friendly staff, who encouraged me to revisit in warmer months!

    Great Patio for dining with your dog

    The food was delicious, but the patio is what made the visit great!!

    Dog friendly with atmosphere

    We stopped at El Patron while passing through Albuquerque on a road-trip. The staff and locals were warm and friendly in welcoming our two poodles. We enjoyed our tasty New Mexican cuisine accompanied by the smell of mountain rain. We stayed warm and dry under the covered patio. Overall wonderful experience.

    Dogs are now permitted again despite covid

    I left my pups at the Airbnb based on the reviews that said no dogs during Covid but I guess Covid is considered over now because we aren’t required to wear masks. Dogs are now in fact allowed on the patio again but you do need to go inside to request a table - so if traveling alone you’ll need to give them a call to meet you outside! Ok food. Shaded patio off the parking lot with a gate do you aren’t staring at cars. Some seats have a partial mountain view.

    Great food with dog friendly patio

    We went here twice while visiting Albuquerque with our two dogs. Service was great and so was the food. They even brought out a water dish for the dogs.

    No Dogs during COVID-19

    weird fantastic things about this place, but I called and just wanted to let everybody know that they are not allowing dogs during covid. It was a bit of a disappointment.

    Great Patio

    This was a great choice. It had a super large covered patio completely fenced in. The waitress was prompt and we were seated on the patio even though we were the only customers on the patio. Very welcoming to dogs. We were here on a weekday between 4 and 5 PM. Recommend.

    Don’t Go

    I had read mixed reviews on Yelp, Open Table and Bring Fifo, but it looked like such a beautiful setting and the descriptions of the food sounded great. The service was awful. Took 35 minutes to get a drink. The correct order didn’t come and the food wasn’t that good. They did have good guacamole. I wouldn’t go back. .

    Happy to find this on Bring Fido. We arrived at the tail end of brunch on a beautiful day. Covered patio was perfect
