We always love the food here. Everything tastes great, and the wait staff are always attentive. We haven't had anything here that we didn't like. We try to eat here at least once a month or more. Great menu options, and priced right

Mark McLean

Great and unique Mexican food! I had the San Diego Burrito.... chorizo with mashed potatoes inside the burrito.... so different and delicious. So many other original choices... Also LOVED the way the staff kept the children segregated on one side of the room so they couldn't ruin dinner for those without. Can't wait to go back!

Mike Maniaci

Always great food prepared very quickly. When I first moved to Michigan I could not find a Mexican restaurant with white cheese sauce. When Vaqueros came to Monroe I was excited to say the least.

Grace Willer

Excellent food an service


Service was fast and friendly. Food was very good. (As you can see from the pictures) Prices are pretty good as well. They lose one star for charging too much for jalapenos and sour cream (25% of my bill). At least sour cream should be included. But this is how most restaurants sneak extra money now a days.

Ronald Baldridge

James Stanford

Delicious authentic Mexican fare, excellent service, all at reasonable price. Always at the top of my list for dining out in Monroe.

Brandon Baker

My family and I love dining at this local chain. The service is always first rate and the food is outstanding. The menu is extensive and has a wide variety of standard Mexican dishes as well as some delicious chef's specials. The kid's menu has both kid-friendly Mexican food as well as standard kid fare. I've never had a bad meal or a poor experience here. Highly recommended!

This place is awful for doordash. They rush thru orders and then they arent ready. Then dont know the order bc they cleared it out. Not to mention no hello and the young waitstaff is rude.

Their service is exceptional and food is phenomenal. Especially the chicken margarita. Chicken is perfectly marinated and has a tangy flavor! I will definitely recommend this place.

Delicious food served hot. Prices & portions were satisfactory. Cleanliness & comfort were satisfactory. Overall, it was an average experience. I have had better Mexican food. Not bad, so I would return; but I'm not overly tempted to rush back.

Nathan Smith

Authentic good food and atmosphere.

Obed Clemente

XD Vaquero you been hired for the very best fast Professional customer service skills your employees have to offer, I'd give you 7 stars like Dubai offers now but this app only offers 5 sorry. I know where to take good dates to on payday since I am single XD. All I want out of a real authentic Mexican restaurant. If you crave Mexican food just try them once their menus start high end low and you can always customize your order to what you crave for from their menu. MMM very impressed,oc.

Maureen Monhollen

fresh chips and salsa to start... great margaritas... ensalade tropical was really good

Crystal Flannagan

Service was great!

Tony C

Good quality Mexican food. Above average for this town.

Ashley Marie

Food was alright. Our waitress kept looking away when ordering which is why I'm assuming some stuff was wrong. Chicken fingers, more like popcorn chicken. Was only a few other people inside at the same time but our waitress visited us like they were packed. Was our first time there, so I'm not sure if that's how it always is or not.

Ronald Nagel

Was pleasantly surprised.Food and service was excellent.


Good food, great service

Thomas Herman

The best Mexican food in town right here an not too pricey.

vipe d

Finally we found a Mexican restaurant Down River worthy of the name, Mexican restaurant. Margaritas were really good and not heavily tasting of sour mix; made just right. Wife had the Carne asada and I had the vegetarian chimachanga. Both tasted outstanding. Also their beans and rice were very tasty. The service was friendly and attentive. Will be going back for sure. For some reason I'm unable to post pics of the margaritas

Dan Obryan

The food isnt the greatest if it you want great Mexican food make the trip downriver to Mexican gardens. Save yourself the disappointment with the food here.

Sarah Baker

Fast friendly service great authentic Mexican food

Michael Mayes

Great authentic food and service! Drinks are made perfectly! Will definitely return and would recommend!!!!

Celeste Kloka

This our favorite Mexican restaurant in town! Have never been disappointed in any of our meals. Service is friendly and quick. Fresh salsa is delicious!

Tonya T

Excellent margaritas!! The pollo margarita was wonderful. Marinated chicken with salsa and cheese with sides was more than I could eat. My husband had enchiladas that were super. Restaurant was clean and all of the staff was helpful and polite. Lots of locals even at 3:39 in the afternoon. This shows it has to be a great place. A must try

Miss Melissa

The best authentic Mexican food in Monroe hands down

Larry Snyder

I feel like I'm sitting in Mexico eating a delicious dish prepared by the champion chef Jose every time I walk in that place.

Amanda D

Food was okay... service was... less than friendly

Kevin Ginter

First time in the restaurant. Staff was great and the food amazing. I will definitely return for more terrific food.

Jacqueline Beavers

Food ha no flavor. Waitress surly.

Chris Wilkinson

Very good and reasonable priced the lunch menu

Mike Procissi

Exvellent food and menu.

Cheryl Harris

Fast and polite service. I had enchiladas and was unsure if I would like the green sauce, It was excellent! My husband had Chicken Chimichangas and he said they are the best for local restaurants ( Downriver and Monroe); it was loaded with chicken and not skimpy. By far the best Guacamole; it was fresh, flavorful and a generous portion. I have never had a bad experience there or left hungry.

Tj fishaholic

Good food , prices fair,

Kurt Schuon

Our favorite place. 9 x out of 10 it's well staffed. Great food and good service. It's our Go To for Mexican food.

Charla Gaynier

Pitchers of margaritas are all ice. Got 3 small drinks out of a large pitcher. Anytime we asked waiter for some thing, he rolled his eyes. I liked it better when it was managed by Eduardo.

Good food and service.

I was greeted promptly, seated and brought my food in a good time. I enjoyed the taco salad and found it was good flavor. Was a bit disappointed on the serving size and surprisingly not much lettuce. Price was fair and I'd return again.
