“Very good Mexican food”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This is one of our favorite Mexican food restaurants. Waiters are very fast and courteous, and attentive. I always have a full glass of soda on the table. Good food, great service. Hard to beat....

“Best Mexican food I've had.”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

I've been to a lot of good Mexican restaurants in our area but this is the best. Lots of food--you'll always have some to take home. We had a good sized party with kids and they were right on the spot. They are friendly and attentive, especially considering how busy they are. I've eaten there lots of times and never had a bad or even mediocre meal. And it's owned by and Iranian--who would have thought!

“El Matador is awesome”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

Love going to El matador. Our family and friends eat here at least once per month and love it. The salsa is some of the best I have ever tasted and I recomend that you get the grated cheese when the server asks about it. We love eating there.

“Good Mexican Food”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

This restaurant has great Mexican food. They can seat families or parties of 30 or more. I have been three many times. Some times it's hard to find a place to park as the parking lot is small. So go early to avoid the line and have a parking space.

“Good food, IF you can get service!!”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

This restaurant has great food, but don't expect much in terms of service. The staff is rude and incompetent for the most part, including the management. Be prepared for slow, unenthusiastic service and plenty of eye rolling. The last time we went we didn't even end up eating because we were seated by an incredibly rude host and then left without any acknowledgement for over 10 minutes...
