Fast cheap Mexican food

This is a good place to give your kids their chips and cheese dip fix. They also have a large variety of margaritas and tequilas for the grown ups.

Matador in Oakhurst was the place I would love to go to on Friday nights but it's so small when I got off work it was way too crowded. The location on Glenwood was a better choice with more room and better service but for some reason their house margarita were awful. I was excited today that I got off... More

We ventured to Matador Cantina in Oakhurst (Decatur) because we could walk there and enjoyed the Matador in Atlanta before it closed. At 3 PM on a Sunday it was just my husband and me and one other table. We were sitting outside at a table next to a window. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed movement... More

Inexpensive margaritas, excellent quesadillas, very good guacamole, and seating outside. Our table of seven all enjoyed their picks and our waitress was great.

We live near the Matador in Oakhurst and it's a great place to have a casual Mexican meal. Their tacos are very good and very reasonably priced. Yum!

I've only lived in America for just over two years, and didn't eat much Mexican food in England, but I'm a convert! This is the best I've had so far for under $10 a plate. Chimichangas were generously covered, unlike so many places that skimp, very pleased to have dropped in here.

Tried Matador Cantina because I had a Groupon for 4 Specialty Tacos and a pitcher of Margaritas. The Carne Asada one was good, the Lobster had very sweet sauce, and the buffalo chicken would have been good except it was breaded inside a taco. Their salsa is average at best, but guacamole is good. I give them points for originality,... More

I live in the neighborhood so I visit this restaurant about once a month. It is nice in the summer when you can sit outside. Good margaritas and reasonably priced food. I don't have kids but it seems to be a very popular place for young families with kids.
