Best Mexican Food

El Cazador

There’s an old adage that’s old because it’s true: The farther north you get from Mexico, the harder it is to find decent Mexican food. Once again, El Cazador proves the exception by bringing Missoula a lot closer to Old Mexico. For 20 years, Alfredo Hernandez and his family have offered a menu full of Mexican favorites prepared in a traditional style. No trendy Latin fusion or Southwest-style amalgams here. From the mole to the guacamole, from the homemade chips and salsa to the salmon enchiladas, El Cazador’s cheerful staff serves it up in a comfortable, festive atmosphere. One word of caution: When your server says the plate is caliente, you must resist the powerful urge to touch it. El Cazador • 101 S. Higgins • 728-3657 •
