When you think of Mexican food in Huntsville, different things come to mind. Rosie’s, Casa Blanca, Guadalajara and Bandito Burrito are just a few of the local places that come to mind easily. However, when you throw the word authentic into the equation, it can get a little tricky, unless you know where to look!
Taqueria El Cazador, often simply called Cazador’s, has 3 locations. You can find a closed in taco truck on the corner of Drake and Triana, another truck on Governors near the Post Office and the restaurant on South Parkway. I have visited all three locations and the closed in Taco Truck on Triana is my favorite.
There are burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas, tostadas, mulatas and more, but the stars of the show are the authentic Mexican tacos. Soft corn tortillas are filled with your choice of meat, cilantro and onions with lime and pickled veggies on the side. These are not the typical “Americanized” tacos, no sir! Four tacos will set you back only $5 and you can mix and match the types of meat. Pork, beef, chicken are among the choices (spicy meat options are available!) If you are feeling adventurous order at least one lengua taco (beef tongue). It’s pleasantly yummy!
Don’t speak the language? Not to worry, step right up and place your order. The guy at window has you covered!
