Que Onda Tacos & Tequila Matthews
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!
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!!!
Didn't read the reviews before I went or I would have saved $2.50 for the small bowl of bland "Mexican" rice - with peas, carrots, and corn-never seen that before. We usually go through a bowl of chips and salsa easily at other Mexican restaurants, but these did not hit the spot and we ate less than 1/2. Not a fan of the peppery puree they call salsa or heavy chips which lacked flavor. There was a lot of meat on the tacos (we had beef and chicken on $2 Taco Tues) and they were filling, but I would not order again as I'm not a fan of corn tortillas and they were only okay. Service was fast and I liked all the hanging stars decor.
Decided to stop by for lunch today, i ordered guacamole as my appetizer and it was very fresh. My food came quickly after and was delicious. i will definitely be returning. the service was great and the manager that was there alex was very helpful and attentive and made sure my experience was great.
So excited to be able to visit a real taco place without a trip to Uptown or NoDa. Tacos were delicious (had the Taco Tuesday special). Good beer and tequila selection as well. Will definitely be back to try some of their more unique taco offerings.
