Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 July 2013

A small group of women (Clovis High School class of 1972) wandered in to this restaurant one hot and humid night after the restaurant we had first choose air conditioner was not working.
We were seated right away by the owner and was treated like special guests. The food was delicious and the wine margaritas were very good too. We stayed there for about 3 hours (until they closed) catching up on time and enjoying ourselves. We will be meeting up again next year and will choose to go back to El Matador Restaurant.

This is our go to restaurant when we're looking for something quick and tasty. Before our son went away to college, this was a once a week habit. Now it's every couple of weeks. Tacos de carnitas are my favorite,followed by their fish tacos. I have never had a bad meal there. Beer in ice cold frosty mugs also hits the spot.

My husband and I think of this as our place. It is a tiny little place in a strip mallbut the food is wonderful. All of the standard otions are available, like tacos, burritos and chili rellenos, but how about chicken with a rasbberry chipotle sauce or shrimp in sauce? Yum! Service is great, friendly and fast. Love this place! When the economy tanked, we decided that this was the one local restaurant that we would try to support with monthly visits -- it is that good!

Been going to El Matador for over 20 years. Still some of the best in Fresno/Clovis.
If you want the genuine article, order the pork ribs in ranchero sauce. Be ready, it's HOT.
