After a mix up with reservations at the whetstone branch a short call with the brilliant 5* manager Adam - accommodated us and within 2 hours we were eating - and could have asked for better he was polite and couldn't do enough for us - definitely a great manager - and it shows with the great service of all...

Went here Saturday night to celebrate my brothers birthday. The customer service was great, the staff really go out their way to ensure you have a good time, they even gave my brother complimentary cocktails because it was his birthday which was a nice touch. As soon as you arrive and you press the green buzzer on the table labelled... More

This place is buzzy and fun and the food is great. They come around throughout the night offering just about every meat product you can think of until you literally can't move! They have a great salad bar too. Service is good. If you sign up for their newsletter/email, then there are random good deals all the time, last minute... More

This is a fantastic night out! Although you are only allocated 2 hours, you come away absolutely stuffed. I understand why they do allocate a time slot, but this does add a little downer to the evening if you have met friends as you get kicked out once you're time is up and it's not in a location where you...

This place is a lot of fun, you help yourself to a large selection of salads and potatoes then wait for the meat to start coming around. The meats are beautifully cooked and the flavours are incredible. Service is good and consistent. I have been here many times with friends and my boyfriend and always walked away satisfied. The location... More

went here the Saturday after Xmas with our daughter. The salads were so fresh and tasty, and the meat just kept coming, all very tasty and served by very polite waiters. It's not a slow meal, and they were turning tables all the time, for the price you pay it might be nice if it were a little more leisurely,... More

We visited this restaurant Saturday with friends that have visited before and knew the form. It is an eat all you can eat restaurant where the Vaquero (cowboy) carves the meat at your table from a large skewer. All types of excellent meat cooked on the BBQ. Also a salad bar with all types of very fresh and different salads,... More

I went to El Vaquero for a birthday dinner with family recently. All in all, it was an enjoyable experience. The meat was really good (personal favourite was the chicken with paprika and garlic), although I was expecting a bit more variety (i.e. slightly stranger meats on offer too). The reception was friendly, and the atmosphere was buzzing. If you... More
