The vibrant Ballard neighborhood with its hardworking, seafaring history has been a happy home to the Matador restaurant since 2004. As the neighborhood keeps growing, with more and more independent and creative businesses adding to Ballard’s revitalization, the Matador — with its big see-and-be-seen windows open along Ballard Ave NW — remains an anchor, offering consistently great Mexican-inspired food, happy hour cocktails, and service.
Our restaurant is located on Ballard Avenue NW in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood.Get Directions
