El Vaquero Restaurant on Riverside Drive is demonstrating its confidence in UA and the surrounding area as a great place to do business by purchasing land to construct a replacement restaurant adjacent to the building it is currently leasing.

El Vaquero Restaurant on Riverside Drive is demonstrating its confidence in UA and the surrounding area as a great place to do business by purchasing land to construct a replacement restaurant adjacent to the building it is currently leasing.

In April 2009, the Board of Zoning and Planning reviewed and approved plans for the proposed building, which will replace the existing Tri-Village Service and Repair building at the corner of Trabue and Riverside.

The new 5,310-square-foot restaurant will feature indoor dining with a bar area, as well as an outdoor dining area that can also be closed in with removable windows during colder months. The building's architecture, as shown by the rendering, will meet the city's high standards for materials, design details that add interest, and will feature complementary landscaping. It will sit closer to the street, with parking to the rear of the building.
