OK Patron Fajita Bar
Sorry this has been so long in coming. I have no excuse other than that life got the best of us and we got busy and ate at Panara A LOT. Eden was very happy. In fact, we had to pass Panera to get to the restaurant tonight and she was not amused. Now, onward! I have restaurants to review!
OK Patron Fajita Bar is in a building the used to be a Wendy’s. I don’t know why, but that made me kind of not want to try it. But I was craving Mexican food, and didn’t want any of the other places in Perrysburg so we tried it.
From the outside, I think you can tell it used to be a Wendy’s. But maybe that’s just because I know it used to be a Wendy’s, so take that for what it’s worth. The inside is surprisingly nice, and well decorated in traditional Mexican restaurant fare.
Since it was called the OK Patron Fajita Bar, my decision was pretty easy. I have deep and abiding love of fajitas. I ordered the steak fajitas. Josh got the burrito platter. I think it had a fancier name, but neither of us can remember it. You have a few options for burritos, and one of them is that you can get either refried beans or whole pinto beans in your burritos. This is important for later. Eden got a cheese quesadilla and we ordered it with fries and beans. We ended up with rice and fries.
The chips and salsa were very yummy (my favorite part of most Mexican meals) but I don’t think they were homemade.
I liked my fajitas, but didn’t think they were anything super special like you might expect from a place that specializes in fajitas. They were a pretty decent portion though and were still pretty tasty for lunch the next day.
Josh’s burrito was kind of disappointing. The meat was kind of sweet, which I thought was super weird, but he didn’t mind. The biggest thing though is that the beans were hard, like they hadn’t been cooked long enough. I was the one who was all “hey, try the whole beans!” so I got hassled for it the rest of the night. Such a punk.
Eden’s quesadilla was barely cooked and the cheese wasn’t melted all the way. She didn’t seem to mind very much, and ate most of it and some of the fries. I ate her rice.
Family friendly, easy going place. No concerns or anything and would be totally okay no matter what time you went.
Oh man, I don’t like to complain about our service, but here I go. It was super, super slow. She brought the wrong stuff with Eden’s meal (we asked for double beans, no rice and got rice and beans) and she wasn’t super friendly. I would understand more if they were busy, but they weren’t busy at all. It was kind of a bummer.
Poor reviews are no fun to write, but over all this was not a great experience and I don’t think we’ll be back. If the food was good, but the service was bad or vice versa, I would we’d try it again, but the double whammy of both being kind of crappy and it’s hard to give it a second try.
Have you guys been there and had a better experience? Should we give it another try?
