El Cazador

ALSO, BEST FOOD CART/TRUCK

Alfredo and Maria Hernandez started El Cazador in 1995, and they’ve been winning Best in Missoula ever since. “Every year it gets better and better,” Alfredo says. Is he talking about his job as head chef or the food? “Both,” he clarifies. Indeed, the care Alfredo brings to his cooking shines through on menu items like banderillas (beef cooked with tomatoes, onions and peppers, then charcoal broiled). Meanwhile, El Caz’s Taco Truck serves up simple but deliciously fresh late-night fare in Caras Park during festivals and on the corner of Ryman and Front on weekend nights. It’s such a regular piece of downtown that most consider it just an extension of the main restaurant on Front and Higgins. “It’s called the Taco Truck?” asks a regular sitting at the restaurant bar. “We just call it the Caz bus.” El Cazador: 101 S Higgins Ave, #1 • 728-3657 • elcazadormissoula.com
