Celebrating their seventh anniversary this December, Loco Patron looks to continue a tradition of pairing refreshing margaritas with inventive Mexican fare. The restaurant's crunchy pork tacos stand out from an extensive menu, garnering the attention of taco enthusiasts and taking home the titles of best pork taco and most school spirit at the 2011 Arizona Taco Festival. The tortilla-bound creations nestle tender shredded morsels of pork atop a bed of lettuce, guacamole, sour cream, cheese, and a special arbol sauce. Doled out in herds of 6–20 tacos, the porcine delicacies scale to suit various size groups and appetites ranging from hungry to postwork lumberjack.
"Best Bartender," "Best Margarita," and "Best Bar Patio." These are just a few of the awards with which locals have decorated Loco Patron in recent years. Unsurprisingly, the combination of talented bartenders, outdoor seating, and signature drinks such as the Sweet Heat margarita with organic chili liqueur have made the spot a popular after-work hangout for groups of friends.
People don't only come for the booze, though. They also come for cuisine such as the crunchy pork taco with arbol sauce, which won first place at the Arizona Taco Festival in 2011. Diners can choose from other taco fillings, too, including New York strip steak or lobster. The menu also includes house specialty enchiladas and house salads, like the spicy steak and the chicken salad, both of which are considered hidden gems by Loco Patron regulars.
