Getting Out
Restaurant Review: Los Patios
¡Muy Delicioso!

Compiled by Christina Scannapiego San Clemente Times

4 1/2 Stars LOS PATIOS

111 W. Avenida Palizada, 949.492.0162

Los Patios, located in the Old City Plaza near Adele’s Café, has always been a Mexican restaurant of some kind. But when Carlos Frutos took over the spot in 2003, he revamped the entire place. What some used to describe as “Mexican take-out” became completely renovated, redecorated and doubled in size. Now, the family-run business offers extensive inside dining-room seating as well as outdoor patio seating and caters receptions and events. Dollar Tacos are the special all day on Tuesdays, and Thursdays offer $1 enchiladas all day. Regulars stand by their seafood dishes like Alida’s Favorite: chicken breast and shrimp with a garlic chipotle sauce, rice and veggies. Portions are huge—and that includes the margaritas. Breakfast burritos and huevos rancheros are popular among the morning crowd. And interestingly enough, lunch guests can even find a Philly cheese-steak sandwich with jalapenos. A live acoustic guitarist plays every Thursday night.

About our reviews: We don’t claim to be expert food critics, so instead of faking it for a free meal, we ask five real customers about their dining experience, then share that with you. All of our reviews are unannounced and unbiased. This information is intended to be useful and is obviously not scientific. Five stars is the maximum score available.
