Very good quality and quantity. Plus they deliver :) I had steak fajitas and shrimp taco's and it was all fantastic. We even ordered too much and I ate fajitas for two day.

Nice warm chips and flavorful salsa is always a trademark of a good mexican restaurant. Cazador was getting ready to close for the night, but were hospitable and served us a meal. I was thankful. This was a nicely decorated mexican food place with good taco salad and burritos. My husband liked his tall cold beer with his spicy food... More

Pretty typical atmosphere for a PNW Mexican restaurant. The service was really friendly and prompt. Chips and salsa were mediocre. Margarita was mediocre and didn't seem to have any tequila in it. Food menu was expansive, but unfortunately the food was meh at best. My husband and I had Carne Asada and Fish Tacos and we shared them. The fish... More

My wife needed a place to have lunch while passing through Oak Harbor and didn't really want fast food. We had eaten here years before and I remembered that it was ok. The good news is that it is still ok. We were quickly seated in the dining room and given chips and salsa while we looked over the menu.... More

We all loved our food here, we would come back in a heart beat!! The portions are huge - be prepared to take some home with you. Especially if you add bean and rice to your meal as a side. Very reasonable prices, and lots of refills on the drinks. Excellent customer service! I can't say enough good things! Try... More

I had a large birthday party here (25 people) and the El Cazador staff did a terrific job of communicating with me throughout the planning process and during the party itself. I would specifically like to thank Natasha, Jose, Andres and Leo. They did a wonderful job of setting up the tables, getting the food out right on time, cutting... More
