— Fiesta Jalisco’s authentic Mexican food and atmosphere is now also available downtown, with the opening of Vaqueros Restaurant and Taqueria at 730 Lincoln Ave.

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

“We brought the same theme downtown,” says owner 
Mario Rodriguez.

Vaqueros adds such new items as meat and cheese-stuffed empanadas topped with sour cream and tomatilla sauce; shrimp ceviche; and tacos made from tripe and beef tongue. Everything is made fresh daily from scratch, from enchilada plates and rellenos to homemade speciality soups and chicken and carne asada offerings, 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 says.
