This is a small very down to earth Mexican restaurant in Sunset Park, Brooklyn that does indeed serve authentic Mexican food. It’s worth taking a trip here to have good food. The place is full of Mexicans, which is a good sign. If native Mexicans go to eat at this restaurant, it’s because they consider the food good.
I’ve tried quite a number of Mexican restaurants; however Tacos Matamoros seems to be my favorite. It’s not too small, therefore it’s not clamped and it’s pretty clean, comparing it to other local restaurants in the area. Sunset Park is a neighborhood with one of NYC’s biggest Mexican population. Sometimes whenever I go there, I’m the only non-Mexican. Other times, I have seen a couple of people from other nationalities that I don’t think live in the area. I don’t live in Sunset Park, nevertheless I will drive there to have bona fide Mexican meals.
I love their guacamole. It’s very good and tasty. Their tacos are excellent. I prefer their big tacos. The tostadas they serve are incredibly delicious. I’ve tried beef, shrimp & chicken; nonetheless, their chicken tostadas are scrumptious. I recently tried their tamales & they are amazing. I had their chicken tamale. They are a bit spicy, but then again, Mexican food is spicy.
Eating at restaurants like Chillis, Chipotle or any of the other chain restaurants has nothing to do with the authentic food you’ll eat at Tacos Matamoros.
Oh, recently they started serving Margaritas. I had a Margarita on the rocks & it’s as good as you can get in Mexico. The best part about it is that their Margaritas only cost $5 each and they are not watered down the way they are in most places.
Sunset Park is not a great neighborhood to take a stroll because it is a poor neighborhood, however if you would like to have genuine Mexican food, you should go to this dependable restaurant and I’m sure you’ll love it.
