Good Mexican Food

The food was great! Nothing to dislike. Restaraunt was very clean and well kept. The staff were great and friendly. Very reasonably priced with good selection.

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.

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
