I've lived in Waco for almost 10 years and have heard so much about "El Con" but had never been. Finally tried it on a Friday night and walked in to servers hugging regular customers. Other customers going to say Hi to other tables. This...More

Met family here for dinner. We arrived around five thirty, and waited approximately 5 minutes for a table for 4. Since it was a Friday night, they were very busy and had a waiting line. Their Tex Mex food is always quite good. The Queso,...More

The Super Nachos are some of the best I've ever eaten. I can make a meal of the half order. They also have very good Fajitas. Great restaurant for a fast lunch, when you're in the mood for TexMex.

We found this restaurant because the breakfast hostess at our hotel also worked here. We've now gone a few times. Traditional Tex-Mex fair. Loved their carnitas tacos with pineapple and sweet/hot salsa!

This has to be the best Tex mex in Waco. When I go, I usually order the cheese enchiladas with queso on top. They load each enchilada full of onions. But one of the best perks of this restaurant is the salsa that arrives before...More
