Great Enchiladas, Great Customer Service – Great customer service and Friendly Staff

"El Matador Bar and Grill is my favorite place to have any type of Mexican food...El matador is great, weather to have drinks, or eat those awesome enchiladas at the bar.

Don't forget the Chile con Queso, my wife and I love the Enchiladas. If you’re going to have dinner - the Spinach and Chicken enchiladas wow! You will love the everlasting taste.

Great customer service and Friendly Staff makes you want to go back for at least once every two weeks

Houston Best Mexican Tex Mex Restaurant – Great Food, Incredible Atmosphere, Tantalizing Fajitas they melt in your mouth, specially at the coupon price of 13.99 for Two can't beat it . My girlfriend loved the quesadillas and sopa de seafood, any way i feel bad for the person that wrote the last review if she has a problem going out to have a good time, dont be a penny pinche

you can't go anywhere without spending $10.00 for a margarita or a chelita so on bz night anywhere that is bz you might get a cold quesadilla i would say to her comeback have a margarita they are awesome. I say this to you because i have been a customer of el matador from 6 years and it might not be perfect but it is a good place to enjoy with your friends and relatives.

Not at all "authentic" Mexican food – The food here is not good at all. The quesadillas were cold which meant the cheese wasn't melted. I think our first waitress completely overcharged us because my boyfriend had a beer and I had a water which came out to $7. For a restaurant to charge $7 for a beer is pretty ridiculous, and its even more ridiculous of she charged for my water. We went on a Saturday so they have karaoke and "live" music. Its really a DJ and a guy playing the drums along with the music. The guy can't even keep up with the beat of the music. He was totally off the whole time. It didn't help that the speaker blew out during the middle of a song while people were dancing. Probably the only good thing about this place is the type of music they played. They played a variety type of music like salsa, merengue, cumbias, and bachata just name a few. The dance floor was small, but I'm not going to judge them on that because this is a restaurant and not a nightclub.

Good Food @ Great Prices – 12oz margaritas for $2.50 every day until 7pm. Food is really good and portions are huge. Fajitas are good, as are their burritos, tamales, etc...

Far from a stand-out. – Stale chips. Very runny frozen margarita. Canned vegetables in rice. Not a single soda refill. Waitress (neither friendly nor unfriendly) kept glancing at TV while taking our order and delivering food. Flour (instead of corn) tortillas in enchiladas (!!?!!). Cubed (instead of shredded) chicken in "Spinach Chicken Enchiladas"; however, did use fresh spinach. Barely satisfactory refried beans
