Casa Del Matador is an excellent Tex Mex restaurant in downtown Portland. They have two locations. These pictures were taken at their North West Portland location. It is not very easy to find Tex – Mex food in Portland and this place is one of my top two favorites in all of Portland.
Last time I was there I had one of my favorites, Pork Tacos al Pastor, and mercy they were good! My girlfriend got the fajitas and they looked amazing. She refused to share, so I assume they were good.

My pictures just didn’t do justice to this restaurant. The bar area is very cool. That’s it in the 1st photo. Yes, that’s a longhorn skull up there.
In this next photo, you can see a round fireplace with a table around it. I really want to eat around that fireplace, but every time I’ve been in someone is already sitting there.

I don’t know if you can tell from our faces, but the drinks were pretty good too. I had a margarita and they served it in a large glass. It was the same size as the glass in the picture.
