If you’re looking for fancy tacos in the neighborhood, Matador is the answer. The drinks are tasty, the tacos are good (but not out of this world), and there are a bunch of seats around the bar that seem made for casual weeknight hangs. As a heads up, they do a lot of carry out, which means the food can sometimes take a while to come out.
