Average place with a nice atmosphere

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... read 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.

We live in Hillsboro and have been to the place a few times. Its a hit with a lot of locals but really nothing to write home about. We've had a lot better and a lot better service in other places. The problem is there isn't a whole lot of paces to eat around here. The food is typical tex-mex... More

Real good food with real good service and very quick turn time. Family owned/operated and closed on Sundays. The chips are fresh and the salsa is not too spicy, but you can see little pieces of onion, cilantro, tomato, and peppers. Very tasty. A must if you're in Hillsboro.

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
