We love to go to this restaurant for lunch during the week and dinner on the weekends. The staff is friendly and the food and prices are good. Its especially fun to see the resident Elvis impersonator perform on occasions - he is the owners son. While he is only 16 or 17, he is quite talented.

El Cazador is a Mexican restaurant in Bedford. We stopped here on the way home from a weekend at Peaks of Otter. When we first arrived, we didn't know if we'd be able to dine here as the parking lot was almost completely full. We did end up finding a couple spots at the far end of the parking lot... More

Great staff that attends to your needs. The food is authentic Mexican at a very fair price. The staff will tailor the seasonings to your request. Entertainment is available on certain nights.

The service is slow, but food is usually good. I love when they have their son there. He is the best "Elvis" I have ever heard. Really good kid and so talented. If you go when he is there you better get there early. Good value for the food you get. You will not go away hungry.

We had a delicious dinner here the other night: a steak tips quesadilla and an order of burritos, and we were very pleased with our meals. However I wanted a drink which was listed on the available drinks list, and I did ask the waitress if the bartender knew how to make that particular drink. But the drink was not... More

El Caz as the locals call it, has good authentic food. The place is always busy, but noisy. This is not the place for a quiet date night. The prices are reasonable, and service good.

We live in California and are some time reluctant to have Mexican food in other states, but the food and service here was wonderful! Give it a try!
