One of Costa Mesa's oldest restaurants, El Matador has been serving delicious Mexican food in its iconic location since 1966.

From taco Tuesday and chile relleno, to house margaritas and huevos rancheros, there’s something for everyone. They have a variety of combo plates including shredded beef chimichangas, enchiladas and sopes.
