No tex~mex here! Truly authentic, delicious, piping hot,....we ordered the chimicanga's and carnitas and the burrito all delicious. They were generous with the salsa and chips which were also fresh and delicious. Thank you for the great meal and exceptional service.

This is the 2nd time this summer we have been to the El Vaquero Downtown Toledo on the River. The first time we visited we had guacamole made to order at the table - such a generous portion with fresh toasty chips only $5.99 - superb along with a 1/2 pitcher of margaritas at $8.99 - along with the river view makes for a memorable evening! September 2nd we visited again but were disappointed in the no. 53 Beef tips burritos - the tomatoe sauce was bitter and the meat unseasoned. My husband & I shared the order and didn't even finish it. We also ordered the jalapeno poppers which were ok -but didn't taste like jalapenos....Needless to say we were disappointed but still had a nice time with downtown view, the sparkling evening water of the river and ambience of the evening.

What sets El Vaquero aside from all the other restaurants is their friendly staff and authentic food. Other Mexican restaurants in town are more americanized or Tex-Mex but this food is amazingly authentic! The staff makes sure you are satisfied and full! I would recommend the Coctel de Camaron and a Pina Colada margarita

The people at this restaurant are wonderful. Wonderful service, wonderful food, wonderful portions. Unlimited chips and salsa, amazing fajitas, and fresh guacamole. The prices are very reasonable, too!

Looks a little run down outside but very nice inside. The staff was super nice. Our waiter was a little shy but did everything we asked. LOVED The Chicken Chimichanga. Wish I could go there once a week!
