New Mexican restaurant gets good review...

The Post-Gazette's phantom diner, Munch, recently took a trip to Patron Mexican Grill along Perry Highway in Wexford (north of the flats). The eatery got a good review and the prices seemed in line compared to other area Mexican restaurants.

From the Post-Gazette:

It was at this point that Munch thought that even if the actual entrees were lame, the 30-mile round trip might be worth it just for drinks and chips.

But Munch is happy to report that the entrees were not lame, not lame indeed -- although picking one to order isn't easy.

The menu spans page after colorful page, with more than 50 dinner options. Munch eventually settled on the camerones diablo (spicy shrimp, $13.99), DOOM chose the chipotle el tio (shrimp and sausage in cheese sauce, $13.99), PHDSFOM picked the three-choice combo plate (pork tamale, chicken enchilada, beef taco, $9.99) and ACMPFOM ordered the enchilada supremas (one beef, one chicken, one cheese and one bean enchilada, $9.75).

Munch was pleased to see that Patron doesn't skimp on the shrimp: There were at least a dozen of them, coated in a pleasantly smoky sauce, with just the right amount of spiciness.

While I've been meaning to hit this restaurant for a while, I still have not yet ventured there. When I go, I'll let you know how it is.

Working to keep you posted...
