The prices are as great as the food. I think it is worth the money you spend. The shrimp cocktails are amazing! the kids menu isn't over priced like most places and the people are friendly.

Our family has been frequent visitors to El Vaquero for quite a few years (10+), so it was quite disappointing to have received such vulgar comments from the cook on September 22, 2019! Two in our party arrived at 7:15 pm, awaiting the other persons to join us for dinner. Made were our usual requests that everyone have their own salsa, beans and guacamole bowls so as not to "swap spit", although we shared the chip basket. The business owner/matron, in relating the order to the young cook (who appeared to be in his mid-twenties), received the response, "puerco", which means pig, in English. All within earshot of our table, two away from the cashier's counter, we were more than appalled that he would be allowed to insult regular paying customers who tip very well! When the owner approached for our drink order, she was told that we overheard the cook calling us pigs, and she pretended not to hear, asking for the types of drink desired, after smiling and managing a slight laugh. Not funny, the story was related to her FIVE, I repeat, FIVE TIMES, and she then pretended not to know the English language! "I don't know English well," she said. WHAT? She can take our order, bring out the product, but pretend not to know that she was within four feet of her own cook calling customers PIGS???!!! Oh no... We told her that we would not be insulted by her or any of her employees, so asked for the bill, which was not produced. The untouched food was left on the table and this family will NEVER BE RETURNING TO EL VAQUERO EVER AGAIN! We should have learned from the photo posted of a cockroach in the vegetable dish another patron experienced. On Tuesday, August 24, 2019, the owner sent her daughter, who wasn't present on Sunday evening, to our place of work to explain that the cook said, "puerquito", an item on the restaurant menu. No, we had not ordered a main dish, so the word wouldn't have been on the cook's mind. Oh, she then stated, he was asking how we wanted the pork/puerco cooked. Really? Who ordered a main dish with pork/puerco? Good try. The daughter was told that she wouldn't have to worry about the incident as we would never patron the restaurant again. No apologies, just excuses..bad business practices.

THE FOOD IS ALWAYS FANTASTIC. THE SERVICE IS VERY FRIENDLY AND THEY ARE ALWAYS GENUINELY HAPPY TO SEE PEOPLE COME IN. AND THE ATMOSPHERE IS AUTHENTIC.
