Foursquare Tips

  • Matador is a lively addition to the Alaska Junction. It's Goth-lite Tex-Mex vibe is great to get beer and some tacos with friends under dim light. However, staffing is a bit like Hooter's with coeds.
  • Found Cody (aka Waldo). Got more than just a drink ;)
  • Happy Hour Every Day 4pm-6pm and again from 10pm to 1am, $5 nachos, chicken quesadilla, calamari, wings, $4 all tacos; $5 shrimp quesadilla
  • Ugh! The nachos are huge!
  • Tamarind Margaritas and calamari are amazing
  • food here is delicous, 1 app and 1 entree is plenty for 2 people. service is always friendly and happy. if you can swing it, do happy hour and eat appatizers for dinner
  • Im very picky when it comes to tacos, nevertheless guys here do a great job with all the menu. But to be honest, if youre looking for tacos go to LA
  • Great happy hour food! Tacos are great, and the clementine salad was also very tasty.
  • Love the atmosphere! It was like if Quentin Tarantino had a Mexican restaurant haha. The carne asade burrito was super good and the guacamole starter was really good too.
