Zest: Authentic Mexican food and atmosphere at Vaqueros

Fiesta Jalisco’s authentic Mexican food and atmosphere is now also available downtown at Vaqueros Restaurant and Taqueria at 730 Lincoln Ave.

The restaurant enjoys Fiesta Jalisco’s same original family recipes, combined with great service and atmosphere.

“We brought the exact same theme downtown,” owner José Rodriguez said.

Everything is made fresh daily from scratch, from enchilada plates, shrimp ceviche and tripe and beef tongue tacos to homemade seafood soups and chicken and carne asada offerings — all of which you can wash down with original margaritas that you can refill yourself from an over-sized pourer. It also offers homemade salads, children’s meals, daily specials and more.

Inside you’ll find an authentic Mexican vaqueros, or cowboy, atmosphere, making you feel right at home in Steamboat. Mexican cowboy artwork adorns the walls, as do lariats and other ranch items.

“It brings the feel of Fiesta Jalisco downtown,” Rodriguez said.
