Although El Patio has been in Rockville for years, I don't remember reading one word about this Argentinian restaurant on Chowhound. Is it because nobody goes there? Is it because it is completely forgettable?
After going there a couple of nights ago, I conclude the latter.
I have to be fair that I didn't order a steak in this steak-focused restaurant. I ordered a fried empanada (totally soggy and dripping in oil), a tongue salad that was overpowered with acrid garlic, and a dish of melted provolone that I was hoping would be sharp or aged or something tasty. But, no it was just a wad of cheese.
Also, there were 'entertainers' playing very loudly. It was near the end of the food service, so maybe they were the crowd chasers.
