We often go for the lunch buffet. Fast service and a good selection. The fresh tortillas are made on site.

We have been to this restaurant in the past and it was very good. But, this time it was over the top. The interior decoration and the southwestern ambiance was great, as it was in the past but I guess I just appreciated it more this time for some reason. The service and the friendliness of the staff is what... More

Been here several times, food is average at best. Disappointingly, tacos and salads are overloaded with lettuce (obviously used as filler) and very little meat. Fajitas were very boring. Service can be fair to good just depends on the waiter/waitress. Most staff seemed friendly. Margaritas are watered down, again with fillers and could taste no alcohol. After several visits here...

She seated us in the back next to the waitress station and near the restrooms. I asked her if we could be seated at a nice booth in the middle of the restaurant. She glared... More

It is pricey, but the food is really good and so is the service. We finally tried the Sunday buffet and it was awesome. Our out of town guest who is schooled in food prep and fussier than us was impressed, as other people we have taken there have also been. I would never guess from the outside of the... More

I was in town to visit a client and missed them before they left for lunch, so my co-worker and I stopped by here for lunch. The buffet was reasonably priced, and the food selection was good. They even had sweet tea, which is unusual for this region.

As a traveling sales person I have eaten at hundreds of Mexican restaurants over the years by far Los Vaquero's is in the Top Five I have been in and I am talking all over this country of ours.
