Loved this restaurant! Service was great, the food was great, and so were the specialty cocktails!

Pre-Theater Dining and Drinks
We always enjoy a quick and delicious mexican dish with excellent margaritas before going to the local theater and this is one of our favorite places locally. We tend to go a little early and we have never had to wait and they get us in and out quickly. Always a positive experience for us.

Food is always good and service is fine. It was very noisey on a Sunday afternoon.

Great Mex in Downtown Fullerton
The fols at Matador had our table all ready for us and were very welcoming. The food is not standard Mexican fair (you can still get an Enchilada if you want) some of the menu had elements of Quintana Roo cuisine (Caribean side of Mexico). The shrimp with garlic cream sauce was delicious. The margaritia were wonderful and the bartender made a killer appletini. And a nice ambiance too.

We enjoyed appetizers, cocktails,
We enjoyed appetizers, cocktails, entrees and dessert and were not disappointed by a single item.
Both the Sangria Braised Short Ribs and the Baby Back Ribs were outstanding.
Choice of vegetarian options were great as well.
Bonus... A discount is offered on Wednesdays for "Heros", including armed services personnel, police, firefighters and teachers!!

This was my first time at Matador Cantina and I was very impressed! The restaurant is beautiful and has great atmosphere. Our server was very friendly in a genuine way- not phony at all! She was very knowledgeable and helped us decide on cocktails, cause let me tell you, there are a lot to choose from! The margaritas were delicious and really big! The food was equally delicious! Everything was tasty and fresh. Portions are large and prices are reasonable. What more could you ask for? Oh yeah... Free dessert cause it was my birthday! I have since returned for lunch and everything was great again. Their lunch menu is awesome! I had a delicious chicken torta and salad for only $7! I'll be back, but I wish I lived closer!

Chilaquiles were the best
Chilaquiles were the best I've had. The french toast is fabulous as well. This was the first time I've had brunch there and I'm already planning my next brunch there. Typically I go for Taco Tuesday - and I recommend the lobster, shrimp, and calamari tacos, because they come with a tasty chipotle mayo. Also, I really like the ambience of the place, with the brick walls and the setup of the bar.

I haven't seen my friends for months, this was a good spot to meet up. The staff was friendly and attentive. I got a confirmation call the day before which was a good reminder for me. The day of our brunch I was 30 minutes early they still accommodated me with a table. I highly recommend the wet burrito and i tasted their french toast...to die for.
