Excellent margarita’s, service and food. We got a pitcher of regular margarita’s, fresh guacamole and street tacos. The service was fast and friendly. The food and drinks were amazing. It was nice to see the covid precautions they took wearing masks and cleaning/sanitizing every area...after guests left.More

Vaqueros is always a good place to eat. The prices are friendly, along with a great staff. The food is always on time and is very very good.

My wife and I enjoy not only the food but the enjoyment the staff provide. The fun we have with the staff is pure enjoyment. The staff is great.

Wow I'm very disappointed. I used to eat at Vaqueros a lot several years ago and had some very good meals there but lately something's changed. Over the last few years they have gone downhill! I nachos for my wife and I to go tonight,...and they did get the order correct, but the nachos were awful. They came with only chips and something that resembled ground beef. I also had the queso and jalapenos on the side. The chips were soggy and there weren't very many especially for $10 an order. We had to doctor the nachos up at home with added ingredients to make them edible and they still weren't very good. The salsa tasted old and I actually dumped it down the drain. I'm not sure what's going on with this restaurant but they really need to listen to reviews and fix their problems or I don't think they'll be around much longer Unfortunately. It's a beautiful restaurant and appears clean with a nice atmosphere but that alone is not enough to bring people in.More

Friendly but slow service. Every time that she came by she said she would fill the glass/get salsa/get silverware/ get to-go container/bring bill, she came by a second time and repeated that. Food was average Mexican food. To me, a little more flavor/seasoning would have...made it better.More

We had a group of six. Ordered the food, waiter seemed friendly. Couldn't speak English very well. But got our order right. Decor is nice. Free chips and salsa. Food was okay took forever though. Bathrooms need updating.

We tried the taco salad and Chimichanga. The service was good, a bit slow but it was lunch time. She was friendly and the food came quicker than expected. The food was food, only complaint was the chicken was a bit too salty but I...enjoyed my meal none the less. We will definitely dine here again!More

MANY things wrong tonight - women’s restroom STILL STINKS; there is NO excuse for not hiring a company to fix the issue (then maintaining it so this doesn’t happen again!) - dining room was very cold; asked twice to have temperature adjusted but it didn’t...improve - I requested my alacarte items be served on 1 plate but they came on separate plates - 1 of my 2 items was wrong! I ordered a cheese and onion enchilada and received a chicken enchilada. I would have had it remade but the waiter never checked on us, so I just had it removed from the bill 😕 - wanted more salsa but after someone else delivered our food, we never saw our waiter until everyone was done eatingMore

The menu Is humongous and consist of about 20pages and 200 menu entries. Food was average, nothing to rave about. Price was reasonable. The worker who took my order didn't really seem like he cared, attempted to go on memory and got the order wrong.
