Home Sweet Fullerton #3: Matador Cantina

Just about every Tuesday you will find me at Matador Cantina. They offer $1.25 street tacos and $2 Coronas, plus live music! I'll have to admit my first visit was not a satisfying one for a vegan. All of my friends ordered their tacos and I ordered a veggie taco, only to find the veggies were onions and bellpeppers only. Luckily for me, the management at Matador is top class. The manager stopped by our table to see how our meal was. I spoke up about the need for vegan tacos on the menu. And much to my surprise the next week there were vegan tacos on the menu; soy taco meat, peppers, salsa atop two corn tortillas. Yum. I've been going back ever since. Not only am I able to order vegan tacos, but I can sub out meat on nachos, the Matador taco and other dishes. In addition to the delicious food, Matador offers a laid back ambiance, great for meeting up with friends after work. The bar is chock full of specialty spirits and beers that will make your mouth water. Stop by Matador any day of the week for great food, drinks and music. And remember to speak up for what you want and I'm sure the managers will do the best to serve your needs.
