“Good Mexican food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

I really like the cold beer and chips. I usually love the spinach enchiladas and would have given it a 5 or excellent but in Oct the sour cream sauce was very skimpy and was good but not excellent like the last 10 years!

“Outstanding mexican food at reasonable prices!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is my favorite El Con restaurant. The others are very good, but this one always comes through. The food is consistently excellent, whether it is dine-in or to-go. The atmosphere is no frills, home-style mexican food restaurant. No pretenses, just good food! I would much rather have superb food than a fancy atmosphere and mediocre food! I eat there at LEAST once a month, and it is my go-to Mexican food place. The owner is always there and is on top of things!

“Always Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

El Conquistador in Hillsboro, Texas is always great. Great service, great food. And the owners are the best! Just love it. I go there too often to just pick one date but I will for this survey.

“Blah!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

The food and service were barely tolerable. The beer was ice cold in an ice cold mug, so that was a plus. The entire dinner seemed to be premade and then popped in a warmer. The cheese enchiladas were tough to chew or bite into. Not only was the corn tortilla tough but so was the congealed cheese in the corn tortilla. I did hear rumor that the Waco Drive location was much better. Not sure I will give them a try.
