Certificate of Excellence
Description: 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.

Mexican folk art, Milagro crosses and decorative silver tin ceiling panels surround this festive, locally owned, family friendly, and rustic style restaurant.

“Good burritos”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

We stopped in for lunch while visiting the area. We all ordered the burrito with shredded beef. The first few bites seemed a little different than we were used to but once we got used to it it was very good. Large portions. The chips were very good as well. The service was only fair-average.

“Best Mexican Food in a Loooong Time!”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Had lunch here and it was incredible! My husband had the specialty Vaqueros Tacos and I had the Blue Corn Enchiladas. We are big-time Mexican foodies and this could beat any L.A. (where we lived recently) upscale or East Los Angeles authentic restaurant! Since we recently moved to Prescott, we will be visiting Jerome at least once a month just to go to this restaurant. We had a wonderful server who couldn't have been nicer (and very helpful with the menu). Don't miss this place!

“Don't miss the garlic cilantro fries!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

After a long hot day of hiking and adventuring we stopped in for a late snack and ordered the garlic cilantro fries; the service was fantastic, the decor was cheerful and the fries were out of this world! A huge serving that stuffed us to the very happy gills - don't miss it!

“A Little Mexican Food in Jerome”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Vaqueros Grill and Cantina is quite small, but if you get a chance, try it. We ate lunch and both of us ordered the quesadillas, my wife the cheese and I the pork. We both had the same problem, too much for us lighter eaters! They were very good, but we probably should have split one. If you are hungry, then it will be just right for you.
