This restaurant is located at the docks. The location is excellent right by the Maumee River. In warm weather you can eat on the patio with a great view of the river and downtown. Food is reasonably priced considering the location. Menu is extensive with a variety of choices. On my recent visit with a group of friends many at... More

My overall take on this location is that it really needs a good cleaning from top to bottom, especially in the women's restroom. My husband and I shared the chicken fajitas, and I could only eat one due to the overwhelming taste of seasonings and heavy salt. The accompanying rice was tasteless, however the salsa and chips were very good.... More

In the past month, I've had a lunch on a Saturday afternoon on the patio, and a 9:00 pm meal with family last Thursday evening. Perhaps the negative reviews I noted on the page have to do with who is providing the wait service, but the young lady who took care of our party of four last Thursday was quick,... More

Not sure what it is with The Docks, but an infectious disease of poor service and an increasingly below average menu is overtaking all of the restaurants there. El Vaquero is no exception. The service hit an all-time low during a recent visit, with our waitress disappearing for long periods of time and then overcharging/incorrectly charging us on our bill.... More

Came in on a Sunday night, seated quickly, then quickly ignored. Server took 5 minutes to come to our table, ordered a picture and waters, then 5 more minutes to get waters AFTER taking a table of 10 order, still had no picture after 15minutes. Managers and others standing around by the bar though. Told them as we walked out,... More
