“Great Mexican Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

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 is very entertaining and seems to love his job. This is our new favorite spot to come and enjoy our free time. Oh, I forgot to mention food and drink prices are very reasonable. We hope to see you there!!!

“Slow service, average food, nothing special here.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

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 of how slow it was.
"Oh, you don't have any utensils." This was made after leaving us with our food and we had to wave down another waiter.

And to top it off, the food was cold.
