The local publication reflected this to be the consumers #1 Mexican restaurant in Waco. Boy did they miss the mark. It was plain Jane at best. The quesadillas were very dry and tasteless. The enchiladas were undercooked. The tacos were very plain. The only thing I enjoyed was the guac. The service was good, but they put us next to... More

I had the pleasure of eating at El Conquistador in December of 2015. I am not from Texas, and I wanted authentic Tex Mex while I was visiting, and BOY did this restaurant deliver. Endless chips and dip were a treat. And large portions were given of my tacos, rice, and salad. The food is amazing !! I can't wait... More

I have always liked their chicken enchiladas. Their sour cream sauce is delicious. However, today when we went the waitress could not get our drinks straight,chips were stale, they put mayonnaise on my husband's hamburger (we specifically requested honey mustard and told the waitress he does not like mayonnaise) and the fries tasted like they had been cooked in old...

Not the best ever, but definitely worth the money. We were not disappointed. The beef fajitas were some of the most tender I have ever had. Service was quick and friendly.

This was a decent place for dinner, but I had hoped for something more authentic in Texas. We had chips, salsa and some guacamole, which was all right. Then our meals, which were average. I really wanted some flan, but they didn't have that, so I had a nice sopalilla, which tasted great...best thing I ate.

Consistantly good food. We love their steak fajitas, and the nachos, enchiladas, and flautas are also good. They have good charra beans. We don't care for the queso here, but everything else is good.

Thank Khandih
