You will not find a better service family operated restaurant around. The food is just the typical Tex-Mex and leaves much to be desired. I admit the parking lot is over flowing so I suppose a lot of people love the food. I feel it lacks true authentic Mexican taste and will pass for the more authentic local Mexican food.

We had dinner here with a couple of margaritas, which were yummy. The server was a girl in her teens and it was refreshing that she had such nice manners and was very attentive. The chips were fresh & we loved the hot sauce. Our food was served very quickly and was delish! Next time I'm on 35, I will... More

This is a great Mexican food restaurant. We judge a Mexican restaurant by it's salsa and this one has a very good salsa. Prices are very reasonable at lunch, several choices can be made on the lunch menu. Since I like enchiladas, I chose the Noon Day special. My husband chose the Student special. You could also order off the... More

We stayed at La Quinta across the street and wanted something quick and easy. We were happy it was across the road and I was a little worried but the place was busy with regulars. The waitress was very helpful and friendly and the food was delicious. We were very surprised and satisfied.

Had lunch there in Sept. 2013. Very pleasant and accommodating server. Had their chicken and beef fajitas plate and it was very good. The atmosphere was nice and the dining area was very clean. Overall a good place to eat and will do more often.

Each time I drive through Hillsboro, I make it a point to stop at El Con. They literally have some of the best hot sauce around. My son always gets a order of the tamales while I order the cheese enchiladas. We also order a side of guacamole because it properly seasoned and tastes fresh. I recommend anyone visiting Hillsboro... More

It has been a while since we have eaten here but needless to say we will not be coming back. We had a party of 5 adults and 1 child when we visited......My daughter got out the baby food to feed my grandson and the waitress told her that she could not bring food in from the outside. Come on... More

We have been coming here for years. I can't say anything bad about the place. The food is good and generous portions. The margaritas are great
