great place to eat, the extra large 1/2 pound shrimp burrito was EXCELLENT and the margaritas were pretty tasty too after a long day at the beach.

“Fantastic Mexican restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Two of us had lunch at this restaurant during the middle of the week. This wasn't our first visit to El Cazador, we had eaten dinner there a couple of years ago and liked it. On our most recent visit the service was fast, efficient and friendly. The portions were extremely generous and the prices were equivalent to a meal at a fast food restaurant, but the food was much better. We also liked the ambience of the restaurant and appreciated the level of cleanliness and the neat appearance of all employees we had contact with. Although we didn't drink beer during this visit, they serve several kinds of Mexican beer, in addition to the domestic choices, and also offer pitchers.
Our lunch came to $20 w/out tip. That included two meals from the lunch menu, two soft drinks and a side dish ($3). I ordered the enchiladas with mole poblano sauce and thought the mole was as good as any mole I'd ever eaten in Mexico, but it would have been better w/out the cheese on top because that detracted from the flavor of the sauce. The 2 enchiladas together contained the meat of at least 1/2 chicken. My husband had the 1/2 fajitas and loved them. We'll definitely return to this restaurant the next time we're in the area.

“It was ok--have had better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Our son is the king of tacos and burritos--so if he wasn't too impressed, then it must not be that great. Chips and salsa were average, a little bland. My husband and daughter did like their meals. But my son didn't like it that much. I had a chicken quesadilla which was alright, but it's kinda hard to mess up a chicken quesadilla!!

“friendly people”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

we go here every year , and this year when we went something was different , the food was not as good, the refried beans were cold, and you pay out the butt just for a little sour cream. which I think should come with what you order. so come on El Cazador lets get the boat to rockin and work on some things

“Good Mexican food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Nice atmosphere - we enjoyed sitting outside on the deck - wide variety of good, Mexican dishes and nice staff. The dishes were all good, fresh ingredients and quite large.
