General Info:
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!

food is execellent

I go to el matador for lunch quite a bit, food is excellent the best part is the warm salsa all the species just tingle in your mouth. El Matador is sure the best trex-mex place in Utah!

Don't waste your time or money

We went there 12 years ago at the recommendation of a neighbor when we moved here. We were not impressed then.
Last night we again because of a comment from another friend. The service was very good but the foood was mediocre at best. Rice and beans were overcooked and very dry. Chimichanga was overcooked, tough, and had very little meat. Same generic tomato sauce dumped over things. We won't bother to go back again. There are much more authentic Mexican restaurants around the serve delicious food like Javier's, or Mara's or Patricia's in Ogden.

Changed a lot

My boyfriend remembers going to this restaurant as a child, so we went for lunch...and apparently things have changed a lot.
I got a smothered burrito, and it was tasteless. The rice was overcooked. The salsa tasted like spaghetti sauce, and it was served WARM. Gross.Not to mention overpriced.
It stays in business because it is popular with the's mexican food for great white northerners. Particularly the older folk who cant handle ANY spices. Our waitress was very nice and the manager was sure to come check on us as well, so my complaint is solely with the food.
Go to Lorenas in Woods Cross if you want good Mexican food as well as good service. They are amazing.
Will not be back here.

Good enough food, better service.

I go to El Matador for lunch quite a bit.

The food is good. The warm salsa is a nice change of pace and I get it with cheese. Yumm.. I like the enchiladas.

I now ask for Sandra because she is nice and fast with the service. Most important to me is that she kept my table clear. Good service is always a plus when you go out to eat.

I think El Matador is worth the trip for sure!!


Family Fave

I have been going to EL MAT since I was a little girl,and my husband proposed to me there :D we used to meet up and have dinner with the whole family The chicken chimichangas enchilada style with guac are to die for. I can't believe some of the reviews I have read. granted the food may not be authentic but it is a great place to gain fond memories

Best Salsa Ever

My husband and I both love to dine here. Service and atmosphere are pleasant and warm and clean.
Chef Tony does a great job of producing the BEST Mexican food.
The salsa is my favorite ever, full of fresh vegetables and so flavorful! My husband loves the Chili Verdi, which is yummy. He orders it as a side dish - - it is so delicious and he sometimes puts it over his entree too. Do you know how food is so good you get a craving for it? That is El Matador.
We highly recommend you give it a try!

Thought I would try the Bountiful local.
They made me wait to be seated there were a
lot of empty tables (why the 20 min wait)
I ordered the Veracruz platter w shrimp. The
server was kind she brings a basket of chips and
watery tasteless salsa I had he bring me some hot sauce it helped a bit.
The food was just ok ,but the Shrimp were not as good as before. Why the Chinese hot mustard? This is a Mexican cafe!! I am going back to Chubby's!

Best food in town...hands down!

I'm quite baffled by some of these negative reviews. I've been coming to El Mat since I was a little boy...and I've tried tons of different Mexican, and it's still the very best. The thing that kills me about these reviewers, is that they mention they don't love something about the food...but how about telling your server or asking for management?? El Matador has the BEST servers and management of any restaurant we've ever been to. If you aren't completely satisfied (the very few times something hasn't been perfect), they bend over backwards to take care of you. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is awesome, the service is the best...and I'd pay to eat there, just for a convo with the owner. Love El Mat!!!
