Because this restaurant is in our neighborhood we eat here often. Food is always fresh and good. Service is quick,once you're seated. Outdoor seated is now available in Dublin. We always enjoy coming here.

We've visited El Vaquero several times, including this location and a couple others around Columbus. We went for supper last night and I'm sad to say we were somewhat disappointed. I'm not sure what's happened to the red sauce they put on their enchiladas and tamales, but it tasted different - almost like it had nutmeg or allspice in it.... More

I am a Latin person, visited Mexico many times, and this is not mexican food, it is more a texmex food. My son in law loves the place and enjoys many different dishes that they serve. Personally for me the flavor does not fullfills my taste.

Really, the title says it all. It's been a while since we have visited El Vaquaro, but it was always one of our favorites when we worked on that side of town. Food was delicious, service was great, and the staff super friendly. Go during non peak hours for the quickest seating.

This restaurant has been around for years. It has seen a few changes but the food is relatively the same. It is authentic Mexican, which is made and served by ...you guessed it...Mexicans. So even though it has been slightly Americanized, it still brings back memories of the Yucatan when I go there. i would recommend it for the family... More

Went here with a big group of people. Pretty good find for Mexican food. Nothing really stood out as exceptionally good or bad but its not always easy to find even "good" Mexican food. I've been here a few times and had the Chimichangas each time. The chips are good, queso dip is good as is the salsa. I would... More

We recently moved to New Albany from the Carolinas. Had a very hard time finding good mexican food. This is the place. I can only speak for the one on Morse and Hamilton, but it is excellent. The food and drink prices are more than reasonable. Good place for couples or families.
