Absolutely the BEST Mexican Food I have ever tried. I have visited dozens of mexican restaurants; and some of them are ok and other are just aweful. Too spicy or to dry. On the ot...

I really don't know where to start. Is it the ketchupy salsa? The enchilada sauce that tastes like it came out of a Patio TV dinner? Passing off cinnamon-dusted tortilla chips as...

We walked out... 7/5/2009

We tried the location off of 161 and Sawmill. We were seated at a dirty table. Crumbs had not been wiped off the seats either. We had to ask for appetizer plates. The salsa is only another form of ketchup. It appears their chips are fresh out of a bag. We left after trying one bite of our appetizer; fundido queso with chorizo. The chorizo was burned resulting in a nasty taste throughout the entire plate. Really bad - we really miss Baja Fresh! more

Good Tex Mex 6/30/2009

Enough with all the reviews saying it's not a typical Mex food. It's not, non of them are, but for what we know is, this is pretty good. I like their website too, pretty cool looking for a mex restaurant, they always do crappy cheesy stuff. more

A fun place to dine! 5/3/2009

Good: I like how quick the service is at El Vaquero! The food and drinks are great, and it doesn't break the bank!. Bad: I believe the food must be pre-made considering the amount of time it takes to prepare different dishes so that's a bit of a bummer! But the food is always hot and yummy!. more

Oh. Please. No. 12/17/2008

I really don't know where to start. Is it the ketchupy salsa? The enchilada sauce that tastes like it came out of a Patio TV dinner? Passing off cinnamon-dusted tortilla chips as sopaipilla's? People, a sopaipillais a hollow puff pastry that you bite off a corner and pour honey in. This restaurant is just so wrong in every way that after 4 or 5 tries, I will not go there ever again. And I have over 40 years of experience eating my way across Texas and New Mexico as a native of that part of the country. more

Good Authentic Mexican 8/31/2005

Looking for a cheap place to get good, authentic mexican food? This is your spot. El Vaquero offers an extensive mexican menu that is sure to include your favorites. I choose El Vaquero over Don Pablo's and Chi-Chi's because of its good atmosphere and superior food. El Vaquero also makes a mean margarita, that is on special during happy hour. I recommend the chicken chimichangas, they are excellent. more

Speed, Price and Ambiance Make It a Treat 7/15/2005

Okay, so the food at El Vaquero is only passable. I mean, how *is* it that they get the food out so fast? I can only guess that it must be pre-made, or (gasp) pre-frozen? Either way, it doesn't matter. Go there hungry. Bring a group of friends, and order a pitcher of their strong and lovely Texas Margaritas. El Vaquero will somehow -- magically -- taste like the best food you have ever had, which is only made sweeter by the fact that when the bill comes you realized that you haven't spent half your paycheck for a fun dinner out. more
