El Patron can be found on Mission Inn Avenue. One of their most famous dishes is Carne Asada—a cut of beef served on a grilled cactus bed with spices, beans and rice, guacamole, and more. Make El Patron your next spot for Happy Hour! From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the restaurant, they offer $6 Well Margaritas and $7 Isla Grandes. Just make sure you’ve got a designated driver, or an otherwise safe route home.

Tio’s Tacos
