May Restaurant of the Month Report

The Diving Rebels enjoyed a delightful and relaxing evening at the Light Catcher Winery in Fort Worth at our Restaurant of the Month (RoM) event on Friday, May 11. We shared great food, conversation, and unique entertainment provided by the owner. We had so much fun, in fact, that we were the last to leave the winery!

Also in May, we initiated a scoring system for the RoM. Please see the Scuba Tank score below for our ratings for the Light Catcher Winery.

We’ll meet at Los Vacqueros Restaurant, 2629 North Main St., Fort Worth, TX 76164, on Friday, June 15, at 7:00 pm, for our June RoM.*

Los Vacqueros is located in the Fort Worth Stockyards in a 1915 packinghouse that has been restored to house this well-known Tex-Mex restaurant. Los Vaqueros uses only fresh poultry, seafood, and meat, and their menu is prepared without using preservatives or MSG. Los Vacqueros’ fajitas are hand-trimmed, tenderized, and marinated without the use of enzymes. Fresh chicken stock, prepared daily in the kitchen, is used in various Los Vaqueros recipes. The restaurant uses only fresh produce, never frozen, bagged, or pre-chopped, to realize the high standards of authentic Mexican food.

Along with a variety of such traditional dishes as enchiladas, tacos, tamales, and burritos, the restaurant’s specialties include the following items:

Steak Ranchera

Choice cut of ribeye (8 oz. average), char-broiled and blanketed with Monterrey Jack cheese and ranchera sauce. Served with guacamole, pico de gallo, and a cheese enchilada with chile con carne.

Tacos al Carbon

Grilled strips of marinated tenderloin wrapped in hot flour tortillas. Garnished with chile con queso, guacamole, and pico de gallo.

Don Juan Coco Von

Delicious breast of chicken marinated in a savory wine sauce with mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, and tomatoes. Served with guacamole and pico de gallo.

Anyone who enjoys Mexican-style cuisine should find something appealing at Los Vacqueros!
