Our food was cold and the service was slow. Not a place I want to go back to. This was my second visit and I'm still not impressed.

I ate at this restaurant twice in August 2014. On both occasions, the food was not good. I gave the restaurant a second try hoping that if I ordered something else, it would be better. Although there were several of us at dinner, none of us ordered anything that was very good. I love Mexican food usually and we were... More

We enjoy eating here. They have a full menu and complete bar. There wait staff is very good and attentive. If you arrive on a busy night the wait isn't to bad they can seat many and turnover is relatively quick. I think you would really enjoy and put it on your list of favorites.

The food here is nowhere near the quality of the decor and atmosphere. Last time my wife or I had dined there it was called "Bobo's". That's why we were disappointed this visit. Most of the food/sauces seemed like they were out of a can/jar. The enchiladas didn't look like the cook cared about making good food. Great building, poor... More

Hands down this is the best Mexican food in Stillwater! Always hot and fresh and reasonably priced! They have the best salsa.

I wasn't going to review this place, but my wife was pretty emphatic that I do so! This was another family time so there were 13 of us. When we first walked in, it was so dirty and messy, I would have left if we were by ourselves, but we stayed. I understand a busy day in a restaurant, but... More

Although El Vaq is far on the outskirts of Stillwater, it is worth the drive for a solid Mexican dinner--far better than most of its competitors in town. The atmosphere is interesting as the insides of the building never seem to end; it's kind of like Doctor Who's TARDIS. Because of its size, I have never seen the place filled... More

My wife and I ate dinner at El Vaquero. She had the seafood fajitas and I had the shrimp tacos. Both dinners were excellent and reasonably priced. Quantity and quality were excellent. Service was also very good. They had a $2 margarita special going on and the margaritas were very good. Definitely try El Vaquero; I will go back next... More

I recently visited this place with my Oklahoma State University colleagues. The ambience was good and service excellent. Menu card had a variety of choices for Mexican food and price affordable, Chips and salsa were just so tasty. We tried different dishes which satisfied our appetite. Service was fast and very friendly. Finally she helped us clicking some photographs also.
