La Patrona was awful in my opinion. For example, the cheese dip was hard and you had to use a knife to cut it. It seemed very similar to mozzarella instead of a creamy white cheese like most US restaurants have. Ate there once for lunch and once for dinner and did not like any of our dishes.

Again, it is true Mexican, versus Tex-Mex, so totally different than what most Americans are used to. If we do go there, will post a review.

was it actually described as a "dip"?...sounds like it could have been queso fundido/flameado, which is a thicker melted white cheese (coaxaca, mozzarella, etc), usually with chorizo or other meat on top, that is scooped up on put into tortillas to make a "taco", (or i guesss you can eat it with chips)....love it when i can get it

On their menu, they have an appetizer which is just described as "melted cheese--The perfect combination of melted cheese served with handmade corn tortillas." Comes plain or with mushrooms or Chorizo.

We are going to try it this trip, I think. Sounds like maybe Cathy and Danny were expecting more Tex-Mex.
