With our authentic Mexican dishes and warm hospitality, we're sure to make your event memorable and satisfying!
Thirty years ago Columbus entrepreneurs Efrain Quezada and Fernando Morales set out to establish and open a Mexican restaurant dedicated to the style of “on the range” cooking.
They opened their first restaurant, El Vaquero Mexican Restaurant on Riverside Drive in Upper Arlington, Ohio. Using distinctive spices and authentic original recipes to create those Vaquero favorites, El Vaquero today has attached other dedicated and passionate owners to the enterprise with 20 locations including three in Greater Cincinnati, three in Greater Toledo, and two in Michigan.
With a strong commitment to our employees, customers, and neighbors, we make it a point to stay active in giving back to our community. Local programs we continually support include Cancer Support Community Central Ohio, Ohio Asian American Health Coalition, The Ohio Commission on Minority Health for their Lupus Optimal Health Group, Local Public Libraries, The Switch: National Anti-Human Trafficking Network, Pelotonia, the Mid-Ohio Food Bank, and the UNITY Fridge program, among others.
