El Vaquero again!!

Oona got back from Oregon and we went to El Vaquero tonight.  She had the chicken quesadilla plate (with rice, beans & salad) and I had carne asada gorditas.  And we each had a glass of horchata.

The owner brought us out a complementary bowl of their Friday special, caldo de res. Which is a restorative pho-like beef soup with potato, carrot, & cabbage in it. This place is one of the best non-gringoized Mexican restaurants in this burg. We may go there for breakfast tomorrow.

Carta de negocios

Heard in El Matamoros in Austin in the 1970s from a vegetarian:

Could I have carne guisada tacos without meat?

  1. guer is El Vaquero?

    • S.E. corner of Midlothian & Turner. There’s a Marshall’s in the same center to the east. And the old Korean restaurant is to the east..

      It’s opens at 8AM for breakfast.

      It isn’t fancy & I think it’s cash only. No ABC permit yet.
