We tried this place out after hearing about it from friends. The food was good snd the prices were reasonable. My wife liked the margaritas too. They had a busy bar area with tv screens. The service was good. I will add this to my list of regulars!

Friendly service, full bar (I LOVE the micheladas) and awesome food. What more can you ask for? I eat here often. Oh and they make the guacamole at your table.

Service was awful! Granted, they were really busy, but we waited 40 minutes for appetizers, after we asked someone to take our order! Worst part, the food wasn't worth the wait! Gristly carne asada tacos that were cold from sitting around! Even getting drinks was difficult! Margaritas took forever! Seriously! We've been there many times before, but this may have... More

Went there on a Wednesday night right before the rush (5:30).Place filled up fast! Wait staff was very accommodating and nice . Very eager to please. The chips were light and crunchy, better than bag but not home made. The sauce was medium hotness-could have been chunkier. My fajita came out as expected: sizzling. Needed more onions, and peppers. The... More

The waitress will make guacamole next to your table. The flour tortilla chips is really good. Funny thing is for the drinks, if you order it from the... More

How disappointed I was to arrive in Modesto and find one of my "fav" spots - El Ricon had closed! A recommendation to El Cazador was however an opportunity to discover a new gem in Mexican fare. Our food choices were all delicious and most especially you MUST try the freshly made at tableside guacomole! It is so fresh and... More
