Service was a bit slow, but it was a busy fight night at the bar. The food was good, decent atmosphere & interesting vibe. Seemed like a decent amount of locals go here and are well known which is always good

Great staff at El Cazador. Staff is very attentive and makes sure we are happy. We ordered enchiladas and the California burrito. Both very ok. And the waiter told us about the naked margarita which was very good. We went for an early dinner so not very busy. Food came quickly.

Nachos were great but I think they forgot the sauce one the mole Enchiladas.. I had to add homemade salsa to make them worth eating... Delivery driver was super. Even though he got lost he did a great job.
