Local/regular here. Solid spot for some texmex. Tends to be quite busy Friday/ sat night. Sunday lunch crowd. Real hungry? Three Cazador will fill a void!

Chicken fajita nachos are plentiful and fresh. The salsa is mild and didn't burn at all. The salsa flavors may be a little bolder if served warm - only thing I would change is to serve warm rather than chilled. The queso is mild queso blanco and the chips are fresh and strong enough to scoop everything!! The chicken in... More

Great food and good margaritas! Always prompt and friendly service. I've been several times with friends and family and also for work lunches. Never been disappointed.

It won't amaze you but it's solid. I ate here and at the over two Mexican places in town, and it's definitely the best of the three in terms of food and service. My perspective is as a native Californian living on the west coast and trying to find decent Mexican food in Alabama.

Waitresses and food were phenomenal! Loved it. Only bad thing was the environment and bathrooms were pretty dated. Totally recommend!

Picked this Mexican restaurant cause it was close to hotel. Very surprised it was excellent!! Guacamole was seasoned just right!! Chicken medallions with a cheese sauce was superb!! Not a heavy sauce, very light sauce with oodles of flavor!! The beef taco salad was huge in a tortilla bowl. Lots of beef, beans, tomatoes, cheese!! The salsa was flavorful without... More

When I miss Mexico, Arizona or just need a true Mexican food fix-this is where I go.The food is excellent and authentic Mexican, not some TexMex or southwestern style.Not overly spiced or brash-it's the same food I ate in Algodonnes, Mexicali, Puerto Penasco and San Felipe. The tacos are great, enchiladas are not overdone and this is the only place... More

We have gone several times in the last few months. Everything has been consistently good, except for once. They must had a different cook, when over board with the salt on everything I had. We have gone back Since then, everything was good

Food is ok, nothing stands out. Sauce for the chips a bit too hot for my liking. Nice outdoor area, relaxed atmosphere, good service.

I'll start by saying that I think our experience might've been a lot better if we had had another server. Hubby's lime margarita was horrible! I got a peach one that was good, as was the cheese dip. I think the food would've been good, but it was cold by the time it reached our table. The prices are good,... More
