A UTAH TRADITION SINCE 1974
For over 50 years El Matador has been proudly serving Utahns. In 1974, the Bountiful location first opened its doors, and has been a staple in the community ever since. 31 years later, founder and owner, Artoosh Hasratian, made a bold move by relocating the restaurant to its current Bountiful location. After his untimely passing on Memorial Day of 2014, El Matador Restaurant in Bountiful continues to be family owner and operated. El Matador’s goal is, as it always has been; to provide the community with comfort, constancy, and the best food in Utah.

Excellent food, great service and an awesome atmosphere. I live in Tooele and drive to Bountiful to enjoy this experience. I have never been disappointed eating there.
Good food and friendly service. I really enjoy the salsa.
I have always enjoyed my experiences at El Matador. The food is the best and most delicious I have tasted. Even after moving almost 50 minutes away, my family chooses to dine at this restaurant. I cannot express how much I love this food and the service and cleanliness are excellent!!!
I love this place. I have been coming here since I was a child. I think their salsa is the best I’ve ever had. I usually get the Vera Cruz. I love their soapapillas as well.
