El Patron Turns Cinco


One of our favorite Mexican restaurants is turning five years old, and everyone is invited to the fiesta.

Owner Alex Cortes is planning a major bash celebrating this milestone on May 15, 2015.

“We would like people to come and have a good time and celebrate our anniversary,” says Cortes.

There will be mariachi playing for hours, dancing, and of course, classic El Patron food.

Cortes is indeed grateful for the support locals have shown to his restaurant throughout these years…and this party is his way of thanking everyone.

“Five years…it doesn’t seem like a lot but it’s a long time. We’ve had a great welcome from the community. All I want to do is give back,” says Cortes.

He is also thankful for his competent and able staff: “I would say always if my employees are happy, my customers are going to be happy.”

This anniversary dinner will also benefit charity as well.

“We’ll make a fundraiser where we donate 15 percent of our profits to charity foundations,” says Cortes.

Don’t miss the fiesta.

El Patron is located at 2555 N. Lake Avenue, Altadena. For more information, call (626) 296¬2818 or visit
