I make regular sales calls in Toledo, and never miss lunch at El Vaquero. Their chips are well cooked and their hot (verde) salsa is to die for. Grilled jalapeños are cooked to perfection, and the beans are always spot on; never runny or soupy....More

This restaurant has very good and authentic Mexican Food. Their margaritas are very good as well. We like getting the freshly made guacamole at the table with chips.

I really wanted to go back to another place we had been to last time we were in Toledo but my son suggested this place instead. I'm glad he did. Everything was delicious! They also have many drink specials.
