Food no good, fajita chicken fried out, refried beans barely warm. Service slow, and unengaging. Bussers were throwing dirty plates into their wagon creating an unpleasant and noisy atmosphere. Will NOT return.

Excellent quick lunch, great service, complimentary salsa & chips. Chicken tacos were excellent and reasonably priced. Nice Mexican atmosphere.

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.

The reviews rated this place as one on the best restaurants in Columbus. I shudder to think what that means for the rest of the city. I ordered a burrito with a cheese enchilada and a beef enchilada. Very bland and boring. The ground beef inside the tortillas tastes like boiled ground beef chunks. Service is ok but the wait staff seems to be just going through the motions until quitting time. If you are rarely in Columbus like I am and looking for an example of what they have to offer, keep looking.
