Cazadores was my go-to place for a quick Mexican lunch when I worked in the area. I stopped by today, opting for the drive thru. If they gave awards for the best drive thru service, Cazadores would win, hands down! The approach was nicely shaded by tropical palm trees, and their ordering setup was in perfect working order...I could understand... More

I'm a Mexican Food freak, and this place is good. Cooked fresh - don't expect a quick drive-thru, but expect really good food.

Great Mexican food with lots of competition around! My wife loves this favorite place for salads and quesadillas and the best hot carrots in town! Two taco combo is her best choice!

I frequent Cazadores Mexican Restaurant alot! It was a weekly stop en route to work for a morning breakfast burrito to share with a friend! The salsa bar is well stocked and I like the Carne Asada plate for dining in the evening! Rolled tacos, chicken tacos and chile rellenos are great and my favorite! I love Mexican food and... More

Want a large amount of meat wrapped in a huge tortilla? Come here. There prices are the highest of all taco shops (in my experience) but the flavors are good, store clean and have the best salsa bar. Drive through makes it very convenient.

We eat at Cazadores at least twice a week since we located their place, for the last 6 months. They serve the bedt authentic mexican food and they also have a convenient drive-thru. I highly recommend!

Good. They have a nice salsa bar. Great beef taco and bean tostado. I like to eat inside but notice most business is drive thru

Thank halfretired
