Searching for an old of the early 1900's "Pay and Take It" store which was owned by Don Willard, my wife's grandfather, we found the sign but now a Mexican restaurant is nestled below. We felt we had to try it, so we did. Ordered...More

This is a really fun place. Awesome, colorful Mexican decor. Super ambiance. The food and drinks were outstanding. If you like spicy, order the jalapeno margarita, a must have. We ate taquitos and rellenos, both were very good. The service was excellent and friendly. If...More

We basically came in here for a margarita, but the food was outstanding. Not your typical Mexican food, more southwestern, but so good. The ambiance was so great. And the margarita, yummy!

The decor in this restaurant is just charming. Very Mexican and very well done. The food is excellent, the staff (I think he may be the owner) was pleasant and helpful.

The Margaritas are large and very good. The food is fresh and there are things on the menu that are more authentic just the typical Mexican chain restaurant food. i.e. Chicken with mole sauce, pork with pineapple tacos. The food was ok, but not extraordinary....More

Stopped there for breakfast and got a warm welcome. Food was on point. Salsa was amazing. But the best part of this place was people and they hospitality. Be nice to people and they would do the same.

While this restaurant is small, it is worth it. Brightly colored and decorated in a Dia de los Muertos motif, it is the perfect place for quite possibly the best Mexican food I've ever had. After a long day of traveling from the mid-West, this...More

Take a break from your average Mexican restaurant and come find out what is new and exciting at Vaqueros Grill & Cantina! Under new ownership, Vaqueros Grill & Cantina has taken a different direction by serving quality Mexican 'soul' food with a breathtaking view of the Verde Valley in Jerome, Arizona - a historic copper mining town, once known as "The Wickedest Town in the West." Located on Main St. in the first Safeway building in Arizona, Vaqueros Grill & Cantina invites you to savor the flavor of our house specialty - Navajo Tacos, a creation of Fry Bread smothered with refried beans or black beans, lettuce, pico de gallo and choice of chicken, shredded beef, pork or veggie style served with cilantro rice, guacamole and chipotle sour cream. Suspended above the dining room is a hand forged agave chandelier, lined by a row of hand-blown glass lanterns hung along a set of old fashioned pull out windows. Mexican folk art, Milagro crosses and decorative silver tin ceiling panels surround this festive, locally owned, family friendly, and rustic style restaurant.
