This restaurant offers a wide variety of Mexican food that is standard. The chips and salsa were quite good. It is located near the Interstate. Service is efficient and courteous.

We have been eating at Cazador in Ankeny weekly for the last 15 years. The service is fast and always friendly! The food is always delicious! Even on a busy night the staff works hard to get you seated quickly and your order delivered.

Cazador was convenient and the food was okay but we were looking for a place with healthy food. We just could not find any place in Ankey that was exciting or different so we just ate there.

I am really picky when it comes to Mexican food. So this place is alright. Service was okay, didn't refill my drink. I was disappointed by food. Since everyone told me it was great Mexican food. Not going back.

Stopped by Cazador for dinner tonight with the family. As always, the service was good and the food was great. There aren't many places that still bring water to the table immediately after you are seated. The salsa is very good and the portions plenty.
