The shrimp cocktail comes in a big fishbowl type of glass and has shrimp in a spicy sauce with avocado and vegetables and spices. If you get it as an appetizer you will need help finishing it and a dinner.

Went to El Vaquero for lunch today and were greeted very pleasantly by the staff. Warm chips and homemade salsa preceded a very tasty and flavorful chicken fajita. Will definitely come back to this restaurant.

I have been returning here for several years now! At first it looks small and like a house, but it opens up inside and can accommodate many people. The chips are hand made and the food is very reasonably priced. They also have daily specials...More
