We have been going to El Vaquero for years. They have remolded their outdoor space. The food is Mexican with the American taste and offer a full bar.

Had late lunch with granddaughter. Service was prompt, kids menu was good & food was ok. For a quick lunch not featuring a burger,this is good. Staff was very helpful when I asked them to watch my granddaughter when I went to the rr.
