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.

I kind to go there only this time was Saturday with a lot of people and I had my reservation but I had to wait longer. But I like for casual lunch and dinner.

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

The meal was nothing special, and the margaritas were pre-made, but our waitress was fun and we enjoyed being able to relax and catch up with friends with no hurry.

Walked right in to our table. The service was good and the food was great as always. It was a little loud, but that’s expected with a large restaurant like this.

We drove 2 and a half hours to come back and eat here because our waitress Mac is the best she always gives the best service hope that whomever receives this let's her know that she is great at what she does!!!

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.

We eat here often. The bar service was very attentive. Our reservation was for 8pm. My husband checked in 7:50pm and we were given the beeper. At 8:20 we mentioned to our bartender that we were supposed to have 8pm reservations. He went above and beyond and checked with hostess for us. Within another 10 minutes we were finally seated. We were going to a concert at Billy Bob's and were on a tight schedule. Otherwise the food is good and comes out quickly.

From the outside you wouldn't think it was nice on the inside but it's beautiful has a very nice ambiance. The food is awesome!! I only had 1 drink but it was good. I am definitely going back to try more drinks and of course the food!!

We were sat in a corner and pretty much forgotten about. We had to grab napkins and silverware from another table near us. Took forever for our queso to come out- no salt on the table. By the time our food came out, we’d been there over an hour and a half. Definitely have had better Mexican food. So overall- not a fan!

If you have never been to this restaurant, you will pleasantly surprised and wonder why you waited so long... I have been going to Los Vasqueros for 35 years, since it opened. It is the only Mexican Restaurant I send people to when they come to town and want Mexican food. You can't find a more delicious chicken enchilada. I don't know what Mike puts in those, but whatever it is, it makes you carve them more. RH from FTW TX

Arrived to the restaurant with guests from out of town and the restaurant was closed. I completely understand that it was a holiday but there’s got to be a way to shut off the ability to make a reservation on here when the restaurant won’t be open. Seriously disappointing since we went all the to Northside for that reason.
