TESTIMONIALS:

"We love El Vaquero. Recently a Bridal show was hosted at my venue where El Vaquero was serving samples. Let me tell you.....the mouth watering smell of their BBQ was making my mouth water all day long.  oh my....   The food was so juicy, so flavorful and beautiful, not to mention the service was outstanding!!  Kelly and Orlando are the sweetest folks you will ever meet.  Honest and genuine to the core. I highly recommend them for any event you may be having that needs catering and food.  You will NOT be disappointment.  They are extremely organized, polite, and ready on time.  Plus how cool is it to have the BBQ on site made FRESH right in front of you.  You can see and taste the quality, love and passion they have for the food they serve.  5 Stars from Gathering House venue.  They are our preferred vendor for a good reason.
Nicole Ryan, Gathering House, Ridgefield, WA

“I had the honor of tasting El Vaquero's delicious BBQ recently at a bridal event.  Not only is the BBQ made on the spot, it's mouthwatering nd keeps you going back for seconds (and thirds) !  Kelly and Orlando know their BBQ and will help create a menu your guests will always remember!  El Vaquero is my go-to preferred vendor when brides and clients are in search of the best BBQ around.  You will not be disappointed!"

“Orlando and Kelly are very nice and professional people. We used El Vaquero for our wedding in Corvallis and were very impressed with their services. They brought everything needed for serving the food and were a huge help to us. The food was awesome and we would defiantly recommend them. They went above and beyond their services and helped make sure everything was perfect.”

“Some of the best food I’ve had in a very long time.  All the guests at our wedding raved about the food! Orlando and Kelly go above and beyond to make your day very special and just the way you want it. I probably changed my mind about 10 times before the wedding and they accommodated my needs with a big smile on their face. The meat was amazing and the side dishes were delicious. I HIGHLY recommend them for any event!”
