Want a margarita that'll curl your hair and make you feel pretty? well this is the place and only one will do it to ya!!! Im a drinker but honestly they kick you in the butt real good but in a fun way :) They mix there margaritas in there very own special recipe then have them in large gallons marinating for god knows how long but I know there are fresh. Whatever they do its MAGIC. The service is always wonderful and the atmosphere is like Mardi Gras and Wonderland with great music playing throughout. The food I have had and it is pretty tasty but definetly go here for the margaritas. I have enjoyed the appetizers. Please check it out and see for yourself. Its so much fun here and its right near Sunset Junction.

Always enjoy eating here. The decor and drinks are really what make it. The food is just ok. The best time to go is at Christmas when it is all decked out. Service is really friendly and puts it a step above as well.

Like the Cheers Bar on TV, you always have friends at El Conquistador!
"Killer" margaritas, wonderful menu, and a great ever-changing theme decor.
reasonably priced with valet and street parking in the heart of Silver Lake.

We take everyone who comes to Los Angeles to this fabulous Mexican Restaurant. The margaritas are killer (better stick to one ...!), the food is always good, the decorations change for each holiday, and are over the top as the place caters to the local gay community. If you happen to like eating early, or are hanging around the area before 6:30 Monday-Thursday, order one drink each and you get a free plate of appetizers so big you wonder how you will be able to fit dinner in! A warning though - if you happen to be there during a sporting event, the upstairs bar area has a TV - and the cheering/booing can be incredibly noisy!

El Conquistador went out of their way to accommodate our party of 8 quickly and the service was excellent. The food was great as well. Nothing unusual about it, just well prepared traditional Mexican. Even with drinks our check was well lower than I expected. My only complaint was the blaring club music, after an hour there our ears were ringing. Would still recommend.
