My wife and I eat here from time to time, however I had never ordered the Nacho's, big mistake on my part! They were loaded with grilled chicken and piled high with chips, onions and peppers. If you have a chance try them, you won't be disapointed!

After hiking in nearby Chickamauga National Battlefield, and having desperately low blood sugar, we were basically looking for "any port in a storm!" From the outside, El Matador looks very much like dozens of other Mexican restaurants...totally unpretentious. But, we were delighted to find that the food was actually very good. I chose chili verde, which came prepared in a... More

Love the chips here & I enjoy the food most all of the dishes are fresh and taste very good. The burrito deluxe is a favorite among my friends. I have never been here and been concerned about cleanliness. The place is always clean, which is more than I can say for some of the many other mexican restaurants in... More

Just come from eating at this restaurant. It is not closed. The food was great. I had a shrimp dish in which the shrimp were tasty and well cooked. I am often sceptical of ordering seafood, but the shrimp were fresh. Tea was good too. Food wasnt seasoned well.

We were looking for a place to eat and stumbled on El Matador, The food was excellent and the service was acceptable. Most of the people did not speak fluent English, but somehow got out order right. The food came out hot and it was a 10 for sure. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you're in the area.... More

Hubby and I were spending a long weekend in the Chattanooga area and happened upon this restaurant at dinner time. Service was great and our food was delicious! I had the chipotle chicken and really loved it. Hubby had beef fajitas with cactus...he said yummy! The salsa was the right amount of spicy. Highly recommended. Dinner for two under $25.

The food and margarita's were to die for! This is not a chain resturant. It's good, authentic mexican food that is not over priced. Service was also excellent.

Ate here on a Sunday night and it was not crowded. Service was good and so was the food. The Steak Chimachanga was great. Prices were reasonable.

Food is horrible burnt 2 out of 4 meals kids didn't even eat theirs which were the ones that were not burnt. Service is slow and uncaring, received adult burnt meals 10 minutes prior to kids meals.
