Just ate lunch at this restauran for the first time. I will never go back. The food was over priced, cold and tasted old. Ordered lunch fajitas without rice and beans. The waiter brought them out on a cold plate and without tortillas, not on a skillet like the other tables. The meat was already cold. I waited and finally had to aask for the tortillas for the fajitas. The meat was tiny and full of grissle. My friend ordered the special tha came with a bowl of soup. After he received his meal he had to ask for the soup which was luke warm. Service was awful. Complained to the manager and it took another 10 minutes to get him to come back. He offered a discount on next visit.
Now this is the topper when I went to pay for a lunch special fajitas 7.50 diet coke $2.00 final was $10.26. I looked at the receipt and something did not feel right but was already pissed so left. The receipt had .76 cents sales tax. Sales tax in Gwinnett county Ga. is 6% they charged 8% on mine and 10% on my friends. This is illegal

My husband and I like a place that has a friendly atmosphere and good food where we can relax on a "date nite" or go to celebrate special occassions with our kids (ages 11 to 20). El Vaquero is great!! We go about every other Friday and have an appetizer, drinks and dinner before playing Trivia. We love it!! And the waiters and waitresses are super. The manager and staff have become like family. We recommend the place to everyone. I am not a margarita drinker but my hubby says the Texas Margaritas are perfect!! I love the beef nachos and taquitos. Great food and great atmosphere at a good price.

We just went there on March 20, 2010 and the service was awful. Reg Salsa tasted like processed tomatoes w/o any flavor and the green salsa tasted like toilet water. We were not given any silverwear and the soup was so overseasoned that it was impossible to eat. I ordered fajitas, the meat was overcooked and the sides, which were brought to the table 10 mins prior to the meat , were cold. My husband ordered hard shell tacos which were brought in loaded with onions, even though we asked priod to ordering. The waiter wanted to pick the onions off, or I quote: "I can ask the bus boy who is also the cook to make it again", a bus boy really?! Well, after all that my husband told them to just take the tacos away, which were brought back to us in 5 mins with onions scraped off and offered to take at a discount.......and the idea of anyone picking in your food, was nasty! Overall, my husband and I agreed that it was the worst place that we have ever eaten at and will never return. Beware!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: none

Cons: bad service and food!

Have been several times, but last time, food over seasoned. After comparing tasting of food and slight stomach, we came to the conclusion that the meat had gotten old and they were trying to mask the taste of the old meat.

I was driving down peachtree industrial today and noticed El Vaquero Mexican Rest. I was very impressed with the environment, it was dimmed with candels all over the place, they had live music that sang music in spanish and english!! The food was very authentic and had the best margaritas i have tasted since i mived down from California!! The staff was great and very attentive...
I highly recommed this place!

I went to this restaurant with my friends after only working half a day and was expecting some good food and fun. This restaurant didn??t even come close to satisfaction. After 20 minutes of wait time and the inability to stay awake because it was so dark in there, our food finally came. They gave a very small basket of chips and salsa and charged for an additional serving. The food was bland and tasted frozen. The drinks we ordered taste like they added water to save money. The waiter was very attentive to our needs?maybe because we were the only ones in the whole entire restaurant. And please, what ever you do, don??t go to the rest room alone because you??re liable to get gang jumped because it??s like walking down a dark alley.

This is one of the good mexican places north of Atlanta. The fajitas are good and the beer is cold. The service and parking are good as well. We'll be back.
