Nothing special about the Mexican Food. Food was very bland. People that were seated after us were getting their food before us. From the time we placed our order to the time the food was brought out took 55 minutes. My granddaughter ordered a corn dog off the children's menu and they forgot to bring that with everyone else's. So... More

Ogden has such a rich and vibrant Hispanic culture and El Matador does not embrace any of it. The food tastes like it came straight out of a can from Walmart. The salsa does not have any spice to it and is bland just like the rest of the food. I would much rather go to the taco stands, which... More

El Matador is a mainstay in Ogden. Been there for years. Always great food and service. They always have a daily special that comes with a sopapilla. It's like the frosting on the cake. Very reasonably priced. My favorite is the shredded cheese in the salsa. YUM!!

You can't lose if you order the Shrimp Veracruz! 2 butterflied shrimp. a taco, and an enchilada. Also, they serve the best chips and salsa while you are waiting for your meal and it is so good you almost can't stop eating it to enjoy your meal. Although, I recommend that you do or miss out on one of the... More

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... More

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.
