Burrito Xpress

While its name has changed from El Patio to Burrito Xpress, this Mexican bar and restaurant still serves up fantastic strawberry, watermelon, peach, or lime margaritas either on the rocks or blended. Burrito Xpress is a comfy place to lounge before hitting the "dancier" bars. Chill out with a drink and chips with salsa in this relaxed atmosphere or try one of their delicious burritos.

Great atmosphere... the staff is always smiling and the food is great. Granted this is more "american-mexican"... if true mexican food is what you are looking for I'd go with Tacos Juanita.


I have been to the El Patio in Menomonie several times and have been very pleased. Today I went to the one in Eau Claire. It was absolutely nasty. The place had just opened 2 minutes earlier so we were the first customers that day. The floors were so dirty that the waitress actually slipped and almost fell in the dining room. My plate stuck to the table and the booths are all full of rips. The food took a long time which was understandable since they had only two waitresses for the whole restaurant and they got kinda busy after we arrived. Which I don't understand how regulars could over look the filf. The food tasted terrible. The "guacamole" was a half smashed avacado and the salsa was not as good as the one in menomonie.The tamale was dry and tasted funny and the rice was like it had sat under the light for a while. The waitress charged us for things we did not order. I will never go back and I wish I knew where I could report them to the Health department. BEWARE


While the prices aren't bad at the Water Street location, the food's not the best---especially anything including meat. Their margaritas and cheese dip are delicious. Plus, their servers are always very friendly.


El Patio has always been my all-time favorite mexican restaurant. They're complimentary salsa is wonderful, as well as their "regular" staff. The most recent visit I had was on a frigid January night and our "window seat" was probably not the best option as we were a bit chilly, but the pleasant combination of spices warmed us up!


El Patio does not impress me. We've had absolutely horrible service there several times (being forgotten about, drinks spilt on the table with no apology or clean-up, rude waitresses/waiters). The food is not that great either, but yet is always seems to be loud and crowded (especially on Friday's & Saturdays).
