Good food

I ate here by myself on business. The service was slow because there appeared to only be one waiter for the entire building. He was doing his best. The food was very good.

The restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel. That was definitely a plus. The food was average. The drink specials were appreciated.

I make up my mind about a Mexican restaurant depending on its chips and guacamole. This one definitely passes the test! The fresh chips have the right balance between light and crispy but hearty enough to hold a large dollop of guacamole. Don't let the guac fool you. It doesn't LOOK anything like the usual guac - but it's awesome!

Neighborhood restaurant off a side street. Good basic Tex-Mex. Fresh chunky guacamole is a good start with any meal. Many lunch specials available even on weekends. Service was friendly, but a little slow. Many specialty drinks available. Good, but standard beer selections.

Let’s start with the location so you won’t miss it. Just west of the I-49 interstate at the Wedington exit (exit 64) turn at McDonald’s onto Steamboat Drive and it’s about a block.

El Matador is GREAT!!!!! The food is wonderful, drinks are good. If you are looking for a great deck area to sit outside and enjoy the sun with good food, drinks and great service, this is the place to come. Ask for Adrian, he makes the best drinks and town. Not only is he a great bar tender, but he... More

The place was pretty full, and it used to be a pizza restaurant. The kitchen is smaller than they need for all the tables they have setup. Service was, not really service. Questions from the wait staff.... "Have you been waited on?", then the person went away. "Do you want more chips?" That was after two already. Get the idea... More
