Today in backhanded compliments from KVUE's passionately banal Rob Balon: El Patio's "chili con queso has flavors that resonate long after dinner's over!" Check, please!
Balon appears in a segment on the 58-year-old Tex-Mex classic in "downtown Austin." No, El Patio hasn't moved, local Austin news station KVUE just doesn't know where downtown Austin is. After the jump, you'll find nearly three minutes of everything we've come to love about Balon: creepily misplaced enthusiasm, thinly veiled shilling and wild appreciation of mundanity.
