I've given this place plenty of chances to WOW me and it hasn't happened....I've been underwhelmed. Maybe if the menu is huge, you do nothing well? My enchilada casserole was bland. The sauce was close to tomato soup. I ended up just eating chips and salsa (which was good). Maybe if you just want margaritas and chips & salsa, this... More

We used to come here every week, but the prices have really climbed and they discontinued the great taco special a long time ago. :( Ordered the white queso dip, "extra hot", yet still had to send the appetizer back THREE times because it was cold! I find guacamole absolutely disgusting and VERY clearly ordered my entree with NO guacamole,... More

Friends asked us to go here for dinner the other night. The menu was huge and has tons of direct dishes. All the dishes are also numbered so if you struggle with the names you can simply tell the waiter your number. All of the food was excellent! We also ordered a huge bowl of guacamole which was probably the... More

The outside of the restuarant doesnt look very impressive and the parking lot appears empty often, but its misleading. The inside is nice and it fills up sporadically. We ve eaten here often, and had many different dishes. The menu is extensive and the prices are very reasonable. My only complaint would be that the chips they serve at the... More

My sister has enjoyed Mexican food in various parts of the US, as I have too; I've also worked in Mexico for extended periods. This evening, while visiting my sister, we were thinking of where to go for dinner; she mentioned the Posole, a delicious Mexican soup. Vaquero's is the only place she knows of in "downriver Detroit that has... More

I really like Vaquero's. The food is good and so is the service. The booths are not that great, but the food is big portions and very good.

Stopped by for lunch - ordered the Mole Poblano, she a chicken enchilada. The enchilada was very good as was the Mole dish, although there could have been more mole sauce. Her wine was served in coffee glasses and was a typical house red wine. My beer was in a 16-20 Oz. glass. The decor and music is very nice... More
