“This place is closed ... "for maintenance"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Drove up to Vaqueros yesterday to see if it is as closed as it appears. Yup. Closed. The sign on the door entrance reads "closed for maintenance". Looking through the windows of the restaurant, everything looked upside down. While we'll never know what happened here, I would suspect it had something to do with the bad food. Rest in Peace, Vaqueros.

“AVOID - a poor representation of Mexican food!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

I've been meaning to try this restaurant after a recommendation from a local. I tried lunch today, arriving around noon and noticing that there was only one other customer in the place. I would soon find out why.

The Vaqueros website opens with the claim that "Our homemade Fajita, Quesadilla, Burrito, and Chimichanga's are just some of our mouthwatering dishes." So I ordered the quesadilla (chicken) lunch special. What arrived was certainly "special", but not in a good way.

This quesadilla thing was horrible. Tasteless and glued together with worst quality of "queso" goo one could imagine. The chicken was bland. The rice and beans were OK - that is, not bad.

This place is an excellent candidate for Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares.

What a shame!
