Their burritos have a special flavor about them, it just seems to enhance the topping. Hot chips and really cold beer

Good food, cold beer. We always clean our plate when we eat here. I especially like the House Special.

Chicken tacos were delicious! The margaritas were delightful! Our queso could have come out a little sooner than right before our food, but it was still good!

The food and service is good but the restaurant is old and a little dingy. It really needs sprucing up! This is a good place for a group because they have room to put tables together and are happy to do so.

Very reasonably priced, good flavor Mexican food. Service is good at first, but sometimes a bit slow to refil your glass or bring your check. We were there for Mom's birthday, and a group of employees came out and sang Happy Birthday to her first in English, then in Spanish, which she enjoyed very much. It is at a good... More

Passing through Waco on the way to San Marcos, we were looking for some good Mexican food. This place did not disappoint us. Don't miss out, very good food, great chips and hot sauce. Needs some updating though.

I appreciated being able to order just one taco Rico from the menu. The food may have been under a warmer a little long as it was very hot but also a little dry. The service was excellent. I would not recommend the pralines.

First I need to say I've been a customer for 30 years. I'm not affiliated with the restaurant in any way but being a loyal customer. I've eaten Mexican all over the world and it all gets compared to El Con. Great tex mex. Not gourmet. Just great tex mex. Our go to place.

Enchiladas were good. Rice and beans are bland with hint if dish detergent. Guacamole was overly processed/mushy. Waiter was awesome and deserves a 5 star rating.
