Dating back to 1964, El Patio in the Galleria is a classic spot that guarantees a good time. Come here for caramelized beef fajitas with a heat that sneaks up on you, ice blue margaritas that pack a serious punch, and their Felix queso, a creamier, chunkier version of chile con queso. The Felix queso comes from a now-closed restaurant named Felix’s, and now, El Patio keeps the dish alive on their menu. If there isn’t a live mariachi band playing in the dining area, into their connected 21+ club, aptly named “Club No Minors,” for live music, and maybe another one of those margaritas.
