Six of us went there for a birthday celebration. Fantastic food, great service, nice atmosphere and good value. If you like BBQ's try the set menu where you eat as much as you can from the salad buffet, and a choose of 20 or more different flavored meats on offer....finger licking good! This restaurant is definitely on my 'favorites places'... More

First visit to El Vaquero to tonight as recommended by a friend. Was pleasantly surprised. All the meats were beautifully cooked and the selection of salads was just right. The waitress was ever so friendly and must finally mention the AMAZING desserts at the end, if you still have room.

All you can eat & salad buffet. I think there are 20 or so different meats to choose from which are all delicious. There is a vege option as well. Staff are friendly & tentative! Manager was very welcoming & always made sure we had everything we needed. Will be coming back next weekend!!

Situated on the High Road between Totteridge Lane and Tally Ho Corner. Plenty of parking outside and surrounding street. We were greeted by friendly helpful staff, who quickly showed us to our table. Reservations are an absolute must, as they are often fully booked for weeks in advance. Be patient on the phone when reserving, or do it online A... More

Every time I visit London, this place is a must! It's an all you can eat buffet where they serve you meat until you drop and give in. Great service and everything is Yummy. It's an Israeli owned place and it is surly a must for any meat lover.

This was my first visit to El Vaquero, with a group of 19 friends. I have been to many Brazilian rodízio restaurants so was looking forward to trying the El Vaquero version. It was very good - everyone loved it including those that weren't big meat eaters! It was Brazilian-style but with some adaptations (e.g. additions like teriyaki chicken) that... More

Parking is road side. Table was booked for 8pm and we were seated immediately upon arrival. We were asked if we had ever been to the restaurant, No. They talked us through what to expect and how things worked, they have a selection of meats that will come round and they are all cooked differently. Green light is for keep... More
