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.

I am not sure what the other reviewers ran into, but I always have great service and food there. My wife and I have eaten there many times in the past few years. I have been there both lunch and dinner - crowded and not so. Most nights the parking lot is full.

The food is bland and has a bad taste overall. You're better off going to Taco Bell.

They service is slow and not very friendly. The food is awful and wasn't right. Took forever to get someone to the table to change it. Won't be going back.

It took 10 min to get chips and longer for the drinks. Only about 6 people in restaurant when we got there. Brought us wrong food. Food tasted bad.
