Traveling on Easter Sunday and stopped in Tifton. This restaurant was next door, so we decided to have our Easter Dinner here. Nor really the traditional Easter feast, but the food was exceptional. Quite possibly the best salsa ever. My guy had the Enchiladas Verde and I chose just an appetizer of guacamole with Pico. We also enjoyed a couple... More

We eat here 3 times a week really good food and atmosphere. Service is always friendly it tends to appear slow at times but that is only because of how large they are. They do their best to accommodate the crowd. Always a line on the weekends.

On a huge road trip from Alabama to Florida, and we came off at Tifton to eat lunch. Not having a clue where to go, we got a bit lost and saw a sign for El Cazador.... 8 miles out of our way and we arrive, but we're committed now! And about a 20 minute wait with no reservation. Totally... More

Ordered chili relleno and shrimp enchilada (special order). Chili was tiny, and stuffed with a mushy hamburger-type filling, topped with processed cheese. Enchilada (aka dry, rolled up tortilla) encased shrimp only. The 4 shrimp tasted good! Rice resembled and tasted like Uncle Ben's. Beans were bland. So disappointed! In town working for a short time, so every culinary experience counts.... More

Service was great, food was great, atmosphere was great, everything was top notch and substantially above average Mexican fare. This place has typical menu items but also has several more seafood options than you typically find. Very clean and up to date restaurant. We will make a point to stop here again next time we are coming through Tifton.

Always love eating here when I'm in the area. It can get busy at times but it's typically fast and the staff is responsive.

Great house lime margaritas at a special Sunday price - tasty. Our enchilata's were both chicken & ground beef with rice & beans - yummy. Above all, for me the Salsa was perfect, just a little bit of fire and great taste. Don't miss it.

Our experience was barely average. The hostess was brusque and in a big hurry even though there was nobody else waiting to be seated. Our waitress was harried. We tried the sautéed mushroom appetizer which was mostly a brick of melted cheese with some mushrooms lodged in it. Very greasy! I ordered an ala carte cheese enchilada and a cheese... More

We walked here from the Quality Inn(great motel) across the street. Parking lot was packed and we quickly found out why. We chose to sit at the bar & ordered Pollo Rico and Steak Ranchero. They were great and tasted authentic. The domestic beer was only .99, which my husband enjoyed!! I had a lime margarita which was delicious--they do... More
