Staying in Sunset Park we were looking for somewhere nearby to eat, and this looked the liveliest. The place was really busy but plenty of servers so it didn't take long to get our drinks and food. The frozen margarita was excellent (and I tried a few others while in NYC - purely for comparison!) and the burritos and beef/pepper/rice... More

The tacos are huge, beautifully presented and amazing! I also ordered plain nachos (which was on the menu - because I just didn't want any meat on the nachos) but it came with beef on it. We ended up keeping it anyway, and the waitress sent us chips and gua on the house as an apology. So sweet!

Went to this restaurant, ordered to take out, as usual, and when I got home part of the order had not been put in a bag. Called the place and was told to go get it. I did not go back and will not return.

As others have stated, the service is below average, and that is really too bad because the tacos are pretty good. I had the tacos grande with Mexican hot chocolate for dessert. The sauce is the key to giving the tacos a needed kick. The tortillas, cilantro and onions were all fresh. Gee, after much planning and anticipation, I really... More

Large dining room, filled to the brim with locals at lunchtime. Good sign, not disappointed. Fried tortilla chips were brought with hand made guac, fresh radiahes and salsa verde. Excellent. Enchiladas Matamoros served with red sauce - large plate piled high with lettuce, fresh tomato and avocado slices, drizzled with sour cream. The red sauce is pretty darn spicy, I... More

Six of us dined at Tacos Matamoros yesterday and none was/were (fight among yourselves grammaticians) disappointed. We shared two appetizers (guacamole and nachos) and both were excellent. Our six entrees sampled their entire menu: tacos, burritos, vegetarian dishes, fish, beef, and goat. Everyone was pleased with their selections. Although Tacos Matamoros serves margaritas and sangria, customers are permitted to bring... More
