The food was very good and you get a lot for the amount you pay. My friend said the margarita was good too.

El Vaquero Restaurant serves up some good Mexican Food. Of course you start out with the complimentary chips and salsa which are good tasting and plentiful but the shrimp plate was tasty as well.

I have a favorite that I order everytime we go. Haven't found it at any other Mexican restaurant. It's chorizo, chicken, and pineapple. Yummy!

The food was as expected, but the staff was very harried and limited with the restaurant less than 1/3 full. Sat near locals whom visit frequently and were expressing unusually uncoordinated staff, slow wait server times and food prep times.

Went in with no expectations, expecting yet another run-off-the-mill Mexican place with minimal choice of authentic fare. Pleasantly surprised with the largest choice of Mexican food I've seen on a menu. Table-side guacamole is simply mind-blowing. Went twice in a matter of 3 days (once...More

We found Cazadores looking for a Mexican restaurant in Blue Ash with reasonable prices. What we found is some of the best tasting Mexican food we've had. My wife always orders a Spinach Quesadilla when going to a new Mexican place, and she said this...More

Visited for dinner. The fish tacos were excellent, as was the hot sauce that accompanied them. Service was sharp but not smothering. I'd watch the brown rice as mine was a bit undercooked. Other than that, great visit.

They do have fajitas, not sure if they have non gluten wraps, they have chicken, beef and seafood dishes too. Large menu, so I am sure you could find something...I would call them, or stop in.
