A little hard to tell, as we got take-out, it being late in the day and not long from closing hour. Above-average Tex-Mex fare. Had a beer and visited with some locals while waiting for the order. Staff was polite (despite the hour) and attentive.

EL Vacquero is one of the best in Orange. Excellent food and drinks, all ways fresh and on point. Friendly greetings, fast service and great atmosphere. Owner is personable and wait staff friendly. I for one will be back for more.

Good Mex food, love the chicken taco salad. A place I frequent for lunch on special occasions. Inside is a little small, but they do have outside and covered seating.

El Vacquero West is Orange's leading Mexican Restaurant. When you arrive, you are addressed as an "amigo". The food is great. I always order a modification to one of the menu items. Service is quick and good. I'll return.

El Vauqero is your typical Mexican restaurant with Tex-Mex style food. It is the best and freshest in the area and the wait staff are excellent and super nice.

The food is great, the people that work there remember you and are personable, and the atmosphere is cheesy enough to be cute. I'd eat there for every meal every day if I could.

Loved my chile relleno. Loved the prices too! Large menu with so many choices. Quick service. Restaurant located in a former fast food restaurant but decorated with sombreros, horses, and Spanish cowboys. Lots of locals go here.

I was recently at a workshop in Orange, Va, and 10 of us decided to go to El Vaquero for dinner. The staff was very accommodating, pushing 5 tables together for us and having no problem with separate checks. I'm no Mexican food expert, but my Fajitas were excellent. No one in the group had anything but good reports on... More

Good small-town Mexican fare served by friendly folks in a nice atmosphere. It won't make it to a foodie magazine, but great for a family passing through or stopping by.
