Que Onda Tacos & Tequila Matthews
- Open Now
Most of the food is great. I am a vegetarian and there is only one thing on the menu I can eat, but that hasn't stopped me from returning. However I gave three stars because the tacos i get (every time since it's the only option i have) are served with the worst rice and beans I have ever had. The rice is clearly frozen or refrigerated, tastes like mush and has peas and carrots in it?! Who does that? Refried beans are straight from a can, super bland. Seems most reviews mention these terrible sides but they are in no hurry to correct the issue.
Finally a great Mexican restaurant in Matthews! Tried for the first time this afternoon and it was great! Service was super friendly and fast! The traditional guacamole was good and salsa and chips were very good! I had a beef taco and the Mexican rice actually tasted like true Mexican rice (not super spicy)! Everything was very good! We will be regulars here for sure! Maria O was our waitress and she was amazing!
Second visit. First was a lunch special, taco Tuesday., $3 each. Very tasty. Today it was Thirsty Thursday, $4 drafts, half off wine, $5 margaritas. Had the Cubano sandwich. Delicious, and quite large.
What a great place. Fresh chips and the table salsa is fantastic but they have "The best Mol around"! We have had Mexican food in just about every place in Matthew's, Pineville, South Charlotte and Waxhaw. Hands down the best Mol!!! Alex (the manager) was awesome as usual and he even said they would think about bringing in a non-alcoholic beer. We look forward to coming back. Keep up the good work. CHEF P
I liked the atmosphere, waiter, and food (beautiful presentation!). This is definitely going to be my go-to margarita place. If there were more vegetarian options, I'd have given them five stars, but there were just the veggie tacos and side salad (both yummy though). The good news is that they are accommodating and willing to do bean substitutions for the meat. The fried plantains were delicious and we loved the chips and salsa. I'll definitely be back!!!
