Our party of 4 enjoyed dining at Los Vaqueros. The chips and salsa were excellent. We ordered 4 different entrees and everyone was very happy with their food. We look forward to eating here again because there are so many things on the menu we would like to try!

Great spot for weekend brunch. You can order off the lunch menu also. Great feature was the $2 Mimosa's and $2.50 Bloody Mary's! Service was great and food was fresh and hot. We will return again!

What an awesome opportunity to have all the family out for a big birthday dinner! I’m glad I was able to reserve a table after such an incredible experience this past week.

I was utterly humiliated when we all showed up for the birthday dinner, and the doors were locked. No sign on the door of changed hours. No notification from the restaurant that my reservation was no longer valid. Even though I verified my reservation via email and text, obviously the restaurant didn’t verify back to me that they would actually be open at that time.

At this point, I honestly feel they’ve lost a customer. I just don’t want to gamble again but making reservations for a business meal or a family dinner, only to find out they decided to close without telling the customers who made reservations.

Fortunately, we were able to go down the road to Joe T Garcia‘s. It’s always dependable. Although, that’s not really what we wanted.

The food was great as usual, and the service exceptional! I love this restaurant, and I’m so glad I was able to easily book a reservation so we wouldn’t have to wait for this business lunch. I love it when my guests are at ease and having a good time. Well deserving of five stars.

The food was very disappointing. Taco Bell is better and I don't like Taco Bell. I had a chalupa and it was subpar. Nothing tasty or special. My teen son agreed that the food was pitiful. It was my first time to eat in Fort Worth and I was looking forward to this restaurant that had been in business so long. The atmosphere is lively and I loved the live music. But I'm sure it isn't hard to find a better place to eat. It was like lunch room fare. Nothing seemed homemade or fresh. The salsa was watery and blah. My drink was small and weak. I was hoping it would be like Chuy's but better since it's not a chain. Do not waste your time.

We made a reservation for 730. Everything was great except we were surprised that it was packed. Are we at 100% seating? Every other place we have gone they have skipped tables and kept social distancing. No social distancing with y'all! We love this place and even got married here. Service was slow but adequate enough.

I made a reservation and put it was a celebration. We were there to celebrate Father's day and an upcoming wedding. They put our table right outside the kitchen which was very loud. We had two grandmother's who struggled with hearing loss. When I asked to move, the hostess was more concerned about her servers, then seating us to a more quiet spot. We will still next to the entrance to the kitchen and now had a very wobbly table.

We had a fine meal - my only concern was that since we are supposed to be observing social distancing - the hostess staff was literally seating everyone in one very small space with no distance between tables.

If you are looking for a good text max Restaurant this is not the place. The food was some of the worst I’ve had in this general area. The service was slow and the value to what we received was terrible. I strongly recommend you look for another place

This is the worst restaurant I've had in a long time. It's by far the worst food I've ever had anywhere in Texas. The restaurant itself is very fun inside but that's it. The drinks are even terrible and taste like something you'd get at Applebee's for a $1.

A little pricey for the food quality. Food was adequate at best, somewhat on the bland side. Had a reservation for 3 pm and when we arrived, we were told they were closed. While we were standing outside deciding what to do, they decided to let us in. Spent 100 dollars, not including the tip, for a party of 4 with no drinks. Not worth near that much.
