I'm not impressed with this place. The chips are greasy. It has a old dull restaurant feel to it. The only thing that I ever eat is the super nachos. How can you mess up a nacho.

We read all about El Con online reviews and it sounded like agood local tradition for incoming Baylor students to get to know. Boy, were the reviews all off! Food was just ok, cold, cheese enchilada good, "quesadillas" weren't quesadillas at all, just folded tacos. And the queso I read was amazing?!?!? Tasted like Rico's Nacho Cheese Sauce in the can with a little Velveeta mixed in. We or our new Bears will not return. Service was friendly though and prices were good, but not worth the long drive from campus. Went to Ninfa's next day - MUCH better!

They recently added a few items to the menu that reflect today’s eclectic tastes in Tex-Mex food. But they still have their tried and true favorites. We tried the fish tacos and the veggie tacos, and were very pleased. It is a great place for tex-mex food. And the family run restaurant always has great service.

We have been going to El Conquistador since it's doors opened I think. We love this restaurant and whenever we are back in Waco it is our favorite eating place. Food quality is always high and service is fast. It is very family oriented and set up so large groups can enjoy. If you are a fan of Mexican food this is the restaurant to try. Be sure and try the queso it is great. There is also a location in Hillsboro that is as good.

I really love El Conquistadors! They are a Waco favorite for yummy, authentic mexican food. They have a great selection of food and their sopapillas are probably the best in Waco. I'm not sure if thier flour tortillas are home made, but they are still really good! Great atmosphere and kid friendly. Their bar with TVs is on the otherside of the restaurant. A must try for Waco!
