There was a deal for 16 oz mugs of Dos Equis for $1.50 each, which is ridiculously inexpensive. Moreover, the dish portions were generous, and the food was excellent. Complimentary chips and salsa before the meal.

We have eaten at two other El Matzalan restaurants and they are wonderful. This one just was not as good.

If you like Mexican food you will love this place. Just don't go there thinking Taco Bell, this is so far beyond that.

Best of the two Mexican restaurants in town. The food is hot, fresh, and quickly served. It's good too. I eat there when I'm nearby.

Being from the Chicago area I wondered how good the Mexican food could be in Kentucky , well I have to tell it was good and I am glad I took the chance. Good food , good service , good prices equals a great place to eat.

I eat here a couple times a year. The food is always excellent. They have a great variety on the menu. For this meal I had a fajita steak, chicjen, shrimp combo with all the trimmings. Suberb. Wish I had a bisquit to sop up the juice from the plate. The staff were friendly and always helpful. Service is prompt.
