They use the managers recipe from his grandmother to make this soup. She can cook!!! My wife only gets this here and does not explore the menu. I had the Chilis Poblanos with beef. They were huge, well done with cheese and light batter. Cover...More

Had lunch at El Matador, my first visit there, and ordered the Numero Uno (#1). Chips and salsa are complementary as a starter. Chips are a little thick rather than fluffy. When the order arrived it was a very generous amount of food. Based on...More

Really enjoyed the chicken taco salad there. Good place to eat and great atmosphere. Service was very quick and never felt that we weren't being attended to properly.

Let me start by saying my wife hates this place and won't eat there. So yeah. But, for whatever reason, I kind of like it. Yes, some of the food tastes canned and frozen, but their chips and canned salsa aren't that bad. Tacos are...More
