Tacos are easy to find in Orlando. Food trucks and chain restaurants are around almost every corner. It’s quick and easy to satisfy your cravings or make a late-night snack run. But authentic tacos? Like real, fresh, genuine Mexican cuisine? We’d say that’s a little harder to find. Now add in a super cheap all-you-can-eat deal, and that sounds downright impossible, right? Well, we did the dirty work for you and found some incredible, authentic, all-you-can-eat tacos for just $10.15 in Orlando. You’re welcome.
While it may not necessarily be difficult to cook Mexican food, you know when it’s done right. When what you’re tasting has been refined to a science and made with only the freshest ingredients. And while the initial low price of the buffet may cause you to have second thoughts, the hordes of positive reviews online should bolster your resolve.
El Patron is a family-owned restaurant offering artisan tacos, a delicious lunch buffet, and handcrafted margaritas and cocktails. For just $10.15 a person, you can stuff your face with the best darn tacos you’ve ever had Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, the price rises a bit to $13.99.
It’ll come as no surprise that El Patron was voted Best Tacos in 2018 by Orlando Weekly, but this isn’t the kind of place you can just read about. It has to be experienced.
The menu includes starters of nachos, guacamole, and a sampler, among other things.
Then there’s the perfect “Small Cravings” section where you can pick small portions of empanadas, tamales, or huaraches. And of course, you have your classic fajitas, enchiladas, and desserts like flan, churros, and coconut tres leche.
