“Crazy for Vaca Loca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

I think I may have eaten here at least ten times. Gallo Pinto for breakfast can't be beat. The sauces were out of this world, Vaca Loca was the only restaurant we found that offered any kind of sauce. I loved the veggie burger and veggie sandwich and veggie tacos! The artwork was so cool and the staff so helpful and friendly!

“Nom Nom Nom”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Delicious! The fish tacos were amazing. The only reason for 4-stars was because all of the reviews made me think the guacamole would be great.. but it wasn't seasoned very well and just by looking at it I could tell there wasn't any fresh cilantro or tomatoes inside of it. Still decent, though, and I showed up 11:30 AM in the slow season so perhaps it wasn't their guacamole's best day.

Service was great, I like people that say "con mucho gusto" after they set down food in front me and I thank them for it.

“Local and American Breakfast”

I had pancakes for breakfast, which were average. My friend had Huevos Rancheros and she loved it. Service was alright.

“Loved the guacamole and tortillas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

We loved this place! Probably my favorite in Montezuma. The guacamole and tortillas was the best as were the tacos and the watermelon smoothie!

“Excellent lunch!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

We went to Vaca Loca twice, and then my daughter got something to go on our way out of Montezuma the last day. We just stumbled upon this cute little place in a line up of other little cafes and strolled in for lunch. We had salads, veggie sandwich and smoothies (banana passion fruit), and it was so good we couldnt wait to go back the next day!! Everything is prepared fresh and to your liking. The homemade chips are delicious and a must for everyone to try. The owner was so nice and went out of her way for my daughters special request., and her chef was very hardworking. And she supports the local children so make sure to purchase a cow you can decorate and hang up. It's a laid back, easy feeling like the rest of the town, a place you can really just come for good food and conversation and really feel like you belong there. Or at least wish you did!!
