Had a quick meal while visiting with friends.

Clean bar atmosphere. Food was good. Pleasant staff. Nice area. Had the nachos and quesadilla and a beer. They were all good.

Not only are the staff and bartenders super friendly (owners, too), the food is great. Really. My husband and I are regulars and we've never had a bad meal. I was informed that they use the highest quality cheese, which is why it's so delicious (and addictive for us cheese lovers!!!). Their margaritas are wonderful. We've gone to a couple... More

I walk to Matador at least once a week and it is reliably solid fast, cheap Mexican food. The house margaritas will help you wind down after a tough day at the office and the staff is always quite friendly. Definitely go for the lobster tacos or chicken chimichanga. Parking is a bit scarce, but this is totally walkable from... More

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.
