We actually went to Cazador when or normal Guadalajara had a long wait time. There was no wait here and the food was just as good. Defiantly a good alternative with less traffic.

We have been here for dinner several times since moving from Urbandale last year. Never had a bad meal. Anything from fajitas to burritos is a win. Chips and salsa never run dry!

Our first time here and no need to go back. The food was average but nothing to write home about. The best part of the meal was the Margarita and the service.
