While several of the menu items are fairly generic as to your typical Mexican food, the salsa is something to rave about! The atmosphere is relaxed and there always seems to be a lot of people there.

Basically only older people like it as it doesn't have much spice. If you want bland food this is your place.

Locals talk about this place like it is something special. It is not. Better than average tex-mex in a standard tex-mex style. Nothing to shout about.

We've eaten here several times, and will definitely return. The food tastes delicious, and comes in good-sized portions. My bride's favorite is the large shrimp, served with just about anything. I love the sizzling fajitas.

Had great Mexican food! The chips and salsa are very good and come at the beginning of the meal. The tacos and enchiladas are a family favorite. And they also have good kid meals. Good for the entire family! The price is also very reasonable....More

Our family of 4 went here for the first time on a rainy Saturday afternoon. We were seated almost immediately. Our waiter was friendly and upbeat, but we went for several long periods of time where are drinks and chip bowls were empty. We eventually...More

El Matador specializes in variety. From the colors of red peppers and yellow rice, to the sounds of sizzling fajitas and nacho chips being crunched, we established El Matador to import a Mexican dining experience. Crowd favorites include the Veracruz, a medley of Tacos and Enchiladas allowing you to sample a range of culinary diversity. Alongside our entrees are fresh guacamole, pico and beans in the traditional style. For a Mexican bite in Bountiful, there's really nowhere better!
