I'm a Mexican Food freak, and this place is good. Cooked fresh - don't expect a quick drive-thru, but expect really good food.

Great Mexican food with lots of competition around! My wife loves this favorite place for salads and quesadillas and the best hot carrots in town! Two taco combo is her best choice!

I frequent Cazadores Mexican Restaurant alot! It was a weekly stop en route to work for a morning breakfast burrito to share with a friend! The salsa bar is well stocked and I like the Carne Asada plate for dining in the evening! Rolled tacos, chicken tacos and chile rellenos are great and my favorite! I love Mexican food and... More

Want a large amount of meat wrapped in a huge tortilla? Come here. There prices are the highest of all taco shops (in my experience) but the flavors are good, store clean and have the best salsa bar. Drive through makes it very convenient.

We eat at Cazadores at least twice a week since we located their place, for the last 6 months. They serve the bedt authentic mexican food and they also have a convenient drive-thru. I highly recommend!

Good. They have a nice salsa bar. Great beef taco and bean tostado. I like to eat inside but notice most business is drive thru

After reading reviews on the local Mexican restaurants close to Santee, my husband and I settled on Cazadores. Located in a shopping center between Jersey Mike's and a Sushi restaurant, we found it. They've got a drive thru. Ok, so here's the deal. We walk in for the first time ever... menu on the wall is not very descriptive, so... More

Large portions, great prices, and acceptable service. Breakfast burritos available all day (be sure to add bacon). The bean & cheese burrito is excellent...but let it cool down before taking a bite!
