If you’re craving flavors from south of the border, you’ll enjoy El Vaquero authentic Mexican food. Conveniently located right on Highway 4, you can dine indoors or on their deck overlooking the scenic highway, or you can order take-out.
All of your favorites are here, deliciously prepared using fresh ingredients. If you’ve worked up an appetite hiking at Calaveras Big Trees State Park or on the Arnold Rim Trail, you’ll especially appreciate the large portions. There are plenty of vegetarian options, and a nice selection of beers. It’s a no-frills environment, but the food is great and the restaurant staff friendly and helpful. It’s also a locals favorite – we love it!
Here, you’re just steps away from Ebbetts Pass Sporting Goods where you can purchase a fishing license and pick up any outdoor gear you need for your outdoor adventures. Next door to them is The Outhouse Collection, a fabulous store for quality home goods, gourmet items, cookbooks, furnishings, gifts and children’s toys and books. It also has an outstanding selection of seasonal decor items – and is definitely worth your time to check out.
