Our family of 5 visits here often. You consistently get delicious food and great friendly service. The food is always hot and fresh. The menu is very extensive and affordable. Also very important is the kids love it. I highly recommend to everyone

I love the food and service. Quick and hot. Their vegetarian meals are amazing. And I like their drink specials. My husband likes that they have Modelo Beer on tap.

On an extended visit to Monroe, didn't know I would be able to find a decent Mexican restaurant, but I did! Huge menu, very good food. Nice atmosphere. Decent service. Have gone more than once during my visit and always pleased.

The food isn't bad, its quality isn't always consistent. Have found the same with the service. Still prefer La Fiesta.

We had business in the Monroe area on a bright Saturday afternoon and had heard good things about this place. The traffic was horrible due to construction on Telegraph Road heading to the restaurant but other than that, this was a great experience. I got the "Special Dinner" and my wife went with Enchiladas Rancheras. Both came with a generous... More

Love the mango margaritas, we get them every time we are there. Always happy with the dishes we get, but we don't often change -- we love the combo dinner, choosing 1, 2, or 3 entrees with the beans/rice and it's always good, always generous, and a great price. The freshly made salsa and guacamole is awesome. I will stop... More

This nice Mexican Restaurant used to be a local favorite of mine. I wish I could still say the same. Most of the food remains very good, but there seems to be some things dropping in quality?! Ownership appears to have changed hands, and with it seems to have went some of the authentic recipes. Hand picked vegetables and other... More

I've been to Vaquero's a handful of times. I always say that I'm never going back. I keep thinking that it's going to get better but, I'm still wrong. This will be my last visit here. The service is okay and the inside is always clean. I like the chips and salsa. They keep raising the prices here. I'm not... More

I tried Vaquero's several years ago and was not very happy with the food . . . but my son has tried it since, liking it. He talked me into giving it another shot and it's great! I don't know if they changed ownership or management . . . or just hired a new chef, but the food was excellent... More

As hubby has spent a lot of time traveling in Mexico, we're rather particular about Mexican restaurants and were very pleased with the food and service at Vaquero's in Monroe. The decor is nice, the booths have enough room and the chairs at the tables are larger than at most places and very comfortable. There are a lot of choices... More
