  • They do many dishes so well here. The Chile Rellenos are awesome, and are not coated or fried like you find in many other places. My most recent new favorite dish here is pollo poblano. This is a chicken breast with that great cheese sauce on top and then some sliced poblano peppers. YUM! Burritos are huge, and filled with quality ingredients. The homemade style salsa is awesome, I always eat WAY too many chips.

  • Order: Pollo poblano, pop, chips, salsa

  • The staff of El Matador aim to please, they are fast and efficient. Anything you want, they have it in a blink of the eye. The food is outstanding. I am not a big fan of Mexican food, although my husband is. I find their food tastes very good without a lot of hot spice, if I don't want it. They will prepare it as I ask. My husband likes the hot and spicy - he is very pleased. The portions are very large at a lost cost. The fresh vegetables are very fresh and tasty. The chips and salsa keep coming. Their Fried Ice Cream is the best. If you are going to order this, plan your meal and leave the chips and salsa behind, otherwise you won't have room to eat it. This is a great restaurant for families on a limited budget. The kids will like it too!

  • Order: Combination Platter, Drinks & Fried Ice Cream
