I love this place. Getting hungry just thinking about the review. The tacos are all great and the drinks are good too. Bean and cheese dip is recommended. Service is always top notch too. Grab a table outside. Catering services are well done and affordable too.

I randomly came here on on a Monday night with my husband and we caught the tail end of trivia which was fun. Their Salsa is very spicy in a good way, couldn't stop eating it. The frozen margaritas were good and I enjoyed my Loco taco salad. Would come back for casual Mexican.

I have been to the Matador Cantina twice, and the experiences were quite similar. The second time around, I explicitly said, "I forgot how much I liked this the first time around." Their food is fantastic. I went with the three-taco sampler both times, and they really do a good job with it. Their cinnamon pork is wonderful if that's... More

Not only are the staff and bartenders super friendly (owners, too), the food is great. Really. My husband and I are regulars and we've never had a bad meal. I was informed that they use the highest quality cheese, which is why it's so delicious (and addictive for us cheese lovers!!!). Their margaritas are wonderful. We've gone to a couple... More

I walk to Matador at least once a week and it is reliably solid fast, cheap Mexican food. The house margaritas will help you wind down after a tough day at the office and the staff is always quite friendly. Definitely go for the lobster tacos or chicken chimichanga. Parking is a bit scarce, but this is totally walkable from... More

This is a good place to give your kids their chips and cheese dip fix. They also have a large variety of margaritas and tequilas for the grown ups.

Matador in Oakhurst was the place I would love to go to on Friday nights but it's so small when I got off work it was way too crowded. The location on Glenwood was a better choice with more room and better service but for some reason their house margarita were awful. I was excited today that I got off... More
