Dont judge this place by its "location." It is very authentic and delicious! Every dish on the menu goes nicely with a cold beer lol. You can choose from a variety of meats to go on your selections, and my favorite is the spicy pork! Give this place a try if you want some great mexican food!

this is a truly authentic Mexican place so don't expect queso and salsa and chips. I had a soup with Roast Beef I think #33, but be sure and ask. I saw a picture of another soup and was glad I asked b/c it was tripe. the Burrito's are huge and very good! The bus they have on Governors Drive... More

This place is truly a Mexican joint. The tacos el pastor are excellent!!! I hear the beef tongue tacos are good, but I'm not brave enough to try.

There is no way you can go wrong with El Cazador! Fresh hot Mexican Food. Bring Cash, and an open mind. If you eat it once, you'll come back for more!

This place is awesome and more and more people love it. You will find all kinds of folks here for a very good reason. There is no other mexican food like it. Great health ratings, and incredible food. No chips and salsa here - picked vegetables ( carrots, onions, and jalapenos which are awesome) I can't seem to get away... More

If you're looking for fine dining..look somewhere else..if you"re looking and longing for authentic,,here is the place. It's some sort of vehicle parked in a garage/building with an ordering window on the side. We tried the tamales and they were delicious..especially with the red and green sauces that came along. We are sure to try the Number 2 restaurant in... More

El Cazador's is *the* place to get authentic Mexican style tacos. Several types of meat to choose from (beef, chicken, pork and lengua) also. Other itmes are available such as mulitas, burrito, quesadilla and so much more. The tacos remain my favorite, though. The staff is friendly whether you speak the language or not. Ordering is easy, so do not... More

When people learn that I moved to from California to Alabama, the usual response is "WHY would you do such a thing?" Regardless of the answer, it's been tough to find authentic Mexican food since my arrival. I ate at the actual restaurant, located in a really shady strip mall that just screams East L.A. This is a laid-back hole... More

Taco truck tacos! Tamales are awesome, stuffed with spicy pork and wrapped in corn husks, the way they're supposed to be. And huge--one $5 order feeds two or more, and they are better than the ones served at a particular "gourmet" upscale "Mexican" restaurant a few miles away. Try the tacos al pastor served with pickled jalapenos and vegetables and... More
