“Better than Average”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Having lived at one time in Texas and being very familiar with "TexMex" food, that is what I was expecting. This was definitely a cut above the average TexMex. I had the pork tacos, and they were served on very fresh corn tortillas. The fresh flavors were very evident, although the portion sizes are on the large size. We were a party of 8, and they easily ensured that we received all our orders in an appropriate time, and were very attentive.
No need to drive to the Woodlands, and to incur the additional expense of the fancier restaurants there when Conroe has a gem right off the freeway. Very convenient.

“Favorite Tex-Mex in Conroe!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

The food at El Bosque is excellent, and their frozen margaritas are equally good. The service is always polite and prompt, without being distracting or interrupting. The daily special is always something that you really want to eat, rather than food they are obviously trying to get rid of. The lunch specials are also a great value. This is my go-to place for Mexican food in the Conroe area.

“Great Food - Great Service”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We were vacationing in the Lake Conroe area and went looking for a place to eat. We noticed his restaurant had several cars in front so we went in. It was pretty late in the evening - around 8:30. We all had excellent meals and they were served in a New York minute! The Steak Tampiquena was cooked perfectly and was very flavorful. The Enchiladas and the Taco Salad were also hits. They have a full bar and serve premium Tequila. We highly recommend this place. Very inexpensive.

“Great Cassada Asadas - Authentic Mexican”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We ate with a large group of 14 people at El Bosque Mexican Restaurant. Outstanding Mexican fare! I had the cassada asada..ribs sliced differently than baby back ribs, with onions, guacamole and pinto beans. I thought that this dish was delicious. Lynn had the t-bone steak which she thought was tough, thin and overcooked. Hey at $13 you can't expect miracles! Service for this large group was excellent. El Bosque has several locations. I enjoyed it and I would return.
