Restaurantji's guide to Sylva's top Mexican dining experiences.
“The tacos here are as close to authentic street tacos as you'll find anywhere, especially in western North Carolina.The store itself has a nice selection of of goodies, from a wall of spices to a wide array harder to find (in large grocery stores) snacks and sweets.Of course no tienda is complete without fresh postries...and this place has some delivered regularly.Now, if you're wanting real deal tacos and such, but don't speak Spanish, have no fear. Everyone I spoke with is bilingual.So go get yourself some tacos...or maybe a torta. Grab some stuff that looks interesting.Your stomach will thank you.“
“I second all the 5 star reviews. We were greeted by the owner, one of the nicest people we've ever met. She gave us good recommendations and even made us special salsa picante. She came by to check on us multiple times.Thank you.We were served with warm fresh chips and self serve salsa. The food was delicious, huge portions (the tilapia plate can probably serve 2 people) and reasonable price. None of us could finish our food. We also had some cold beer and horchata. All was delicious. We will definitely come back.Super bonus point: bathrooms are very clean. Love love“
“We have been going to Patron since it was located in the Walmart plaza. Since the relocation we had several poor experiences with service and food. Tonight that was different, we had an exceptional server, Natalie. And the food was fresh and delicious.“
“This is the best Mexican restaurant in this area. Their portion sizes are huge. If you're interested in a foo foo drink , their margaritas are fantastic. Everyone that is employed there is very pleasant. If you're ever in downtown, by the fire station,go up just a few minutes longer it is located on the right hand side of the road. Relax and enjoy!“
