Our family enjoyed El Cazador. We had excellent service. There was a short wait but it was worth it. Portions were huge & the food was good. I think we especially enjoyed the salsa!

Our "go to" place for Mexican food. Their guacamole is made fresh at your table, the margaritas are yummy, staff is very friendly and attentive. My favorite is the cheese enchiladas and the steak fajitas!

Fantastic food! Live music on a Friday night, Arrozo con carne was fantastic! Burritos looked great, was told they were delicious. This was a great pre-social dinner before our main event. Would highly recommend as the atmosphere matched the outstanding food! Very good experience!
