Women like the professional decor and nice atmosphere, but don't expect to enjoy if you want spicy or otherwise tasty food. Little old ladies that hate spices love it though. Bland, tasteless, beans might be made out of play-doh. This El Conquistador would win a contest for the worst chile relleno in the world. I literally can't think of any... More

The restaurant itself is a nice place and very well kept. The staff are prompt and courteous but the food tastes very generic. I have given this place several chances to change my mind but I have been let down every time. I wish that they would just buy fresh ingredients I believe that would make all the difference.

My fiancé and I live in Hillsboro, so we eat here quite often. Their queso is my all time favorite! Most of the time the service is excellent. Every once in a while we catch someone on a bad day, for the most part it's great though. Prices aren't to bad either!

At the same restaurant I am.??? Several Negative reviews that I believe are unjustified. Have eaten Here since they opened many years ago. I have not received one bad food item ever. Prices good! Food consistently good! Premises very clean. Family owners onsite every day.

I tried this restaurateur 3 times and at best service was mediocre. I had to demand to be waited on twice. Food was not worth the wait. Locals rave about food but I think it is because there are so few choices!

I think everything they serve is either frozen or out of a can except the chips. I don't think anything is actually hand made. Look for the hole in the wall place that use to be the old Dairy Queen just a couple blocks up the feeder road on the right. Southbound feeder road. The place that has a few... More

The food at El Con is very tasty, if a little on the pricey side. The service is very good and the atmosphere is warm, but with little or no privacy between tables.

Family owned and run restaurant... Food consistently good, clean premises, prices very reasonable, best frozen Margaritas around! Very good value for the money.
