Let's Taco 'Bout It: Mi Patron

November 9, 2017


Mi Patron has five locations in the Lynchburg area, the closest of which is found in Candler’s Station near Staples. Each location offers a homey spin on traditional Mexican-American restaurants.

 

Mi Patron delivers healthy portions of good old fashioned Mexican food. The menu is large and mostly unintimidating, offering familiar options like chicken fajitas and some more innovative recipes like the Mexican Cheese Steak (thinly sliced steak, onions, and nacho cheese on a soft tortilla). While Mi Patron serves some less traditional meals, the flavors should leave you satisfied.

The Mi Patron on Candler’s Mountain is one of the easiest Mexican restaurants to access in Lynchburg. Walking to Candlers Station from Green Hall is comparable to walking from East Campus to the Rot, while the furthest location (Forest) is about an 18 minute drive if you want to show off your car.

The most important part of choosing where to eat, for college students at least, is the price. Mi Patron is one of the more affordable restaurants in town. Their lunch menu boasts 20 meals between $5 to $8. All things considered you’ll probably spend under $10, unless you have taken Dr. Wheeler and tip 87%. Mi Patron proves to be a great bang for your buck.

While Mi Patron is no Mexican Shoemakers, it is a solid choice for a casual date. Its affordable meals and cozy décor create a good environment for a 2nd or 3rd date, when your wallet is a bit skinny from that flashy first date.
