Altadena – El Patron Now Open

I was cruising around my old hometown of Altadena the other day and I see that El Patron is now open. This little building has had a few lives serving various types of food. I remember it most as a coffee shop (I can’t remember the name).


El Patron is located at the northwest corner of North Lake Avenue and Fontanet Way, a block east of the Altadena Sherriff’s station.They are open seven days a week from 9 AM to 9 PM. The menu includes tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and, if you dare, menudo on Saturday and Sunday. I love Mexican food, but I just can’t handle menudo.


I will definitely check out the burritos in my quest to find the best burritos around!
