“Tex-Mex version of Spaghetti Warehouse”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Food is good to very good, but you're paying for the atmosphere, which is fun. Nothing stands out, but what we ate was similar quality to a typical chain. Some fare better than others, but nothing bad. You get both corn and flour tortillas, which was different. Salsa and guac fresh, but boring. Roaming TX swing trio was cute, but stayed around a few tables up front near ours ignoring the rest of restaurant. Recommended as a touristy thing, but don't have high expectations.

“Nice Atmosphere and Good Food”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We have been here several times. We have always had a great meal and great service. They seem to be a touch higher priced than some of the other Mexican restaurants in the area. Must be because they are across from the Stockyards. It is still worth the cost. Give it a try.

“Good food, relaxing atmosphere, walking distance of Stockyards”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Recently attended a banquet at Los Vaqueros, and will plan to go back and bring my family.

Chips -- just the right texture. Sauce -- in the medium hot range, not so much heat that it drown out the flavor. Since it was a banquet, I received an excellent sampling of the menu including 2 different enchiladas, beef and chicken fajitas (with all the fixings -- guac was awesome), rice and beans.

All of the food was great, but the rice blew me away!! It was very light and not orange and sticky as you find at many mexican restaurants. I could have eaten a whole bowl of the rice and passed on everything else!!

Margaritas (frozen, no salt) were good, above average but not excellent . . . although we had so many people the slushy machine to make the frozen margaritas couldn't keep up with us. I think drinks must be a bit pricy, as the folks that wanted more drinks than we were provided drink tickets (remember this was a private event) -- mentioned they cost was $9 for non-ticketed margaritas . . . not a bad price if it's EXCELLENT, but I would of been disappointed to pay that price.

Again I was at an event, and we were served -- but from the size of the plates I'd assume the portions are rather generous.

Plenty of parking. Also they had a very nice garden area -- it was cold the night we were there (which is very odd for May in TX) -- so we were inside. Not sure if the garden area is just for private events, or a bar/band area, but it's worth checking out and maybe one of the other reviewers knows more about it.

I liked this place over many of the BBQ and steak places in the stockyards.

“Excellent Tex Mex”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

I visited Los Vaqueros at lunchtime with colleagues, and had some superb food, in a great atmosphere.

I had the brisket tacos, and while there is no doubt that the brisket was not as tender as it would have been in a good barbeque place, it was made up for by the accompaniments and the ambience.

The building is very nicely fitted out, and would be ideal for a business lunch or a function.
