The tradition of the Vaquero goes back centuries. Originally Spanish, the Mexican cowboys have their own unique history and mystique. Likewise, Los Vaqueros newest University location has a heritage all its own.

Johnny Cisneros III serves as head chef at all the Los Vaqueros locations. You might say cooking is in his blood. He is a third-generation chef who honors his family’s heritage in a special way at the University location. A mural by local artist Darla Lyon graces the entrance of the restaurant. This painted tribute is based on a family photograph of the eldest Chef Cisneros, circa 1950, when he had the honor of serving President Dwight Eisenhower. It was a proud moment for the family.
