The Mexican vaqueros (cowboys) who rounded up cattle along the border during the late 19th century adopted the practice of grilling meats and cooking food over burning hardwoods. At El Vaquero we continue that tradition. We combine the freshest meats and seafood, colorful vegetables, and unique sauces and spices to create a tasty experience with each dish we serve.
"When translated, 'el vaquero' means “the cowboy.” Besides its consistently solid food, El Vaquero has a warmth to it that some of its newer, more hip rivals may lack. So while superheros are the craze, some of us would rather be cowboys."
