Mexican food will always have a place in my heart, and I am sad I won't be able to try the best one in Montana. 

Taste of Home published a list of the Best Mexican Restaurant in Every State, and the choice for Montana is exciting. Not because the spot isn't a fantastic Mexican restaurant, but the timing is awkward.

The Best Mexican Restaurant in Montana is El Cazador in Missoula. El Cazador is a Missoula institution and has been a staple of the downtown area for almost thirty years. The problem with the selection is El Cazador is closing its downtown location this Friday, May 28th

The owners have another restaurant location and want to focus on that restaurant. Plus, the owners will lease out the El Cazador space and make some great money leasing the vast space in a prime downtown location. 

I am sad that I will never have the opportunity to go to El Cazador and feast on any of their delicious menu items. I am going to blame my sister for never taking me to El Cazador. That seems fair, right?
