So no more nachos at The Matador in Ballard?

September 12, 2016


Looks like we might need to find a new spot to find nachos, everybody. 

The Matador in Ballard (aka my favorite nacho-munching establishment this side of the Mississippi) has been shut down by King County Public Health, at least temporarily, as health officials investigate E.coli concerns.

Cue up this button.

Five different people went home from the Ballard restaurant with...uh...bloody diarrhea, which all traced back to the same strain of E.coli. Four of the five ate at the restaurant on August 14 and the other ate on August 22. If you have eaten at The Matador within the last 10 days and have felt a bit queasy, you might want to get that checked out.

A few people I know have said they won't eat at The Matador ever again. We were on our way to Chipotle, but whatever.

After a deep cleaning, The Matador could be back up and running soon, but you're going to want to find a new nacho place for the time being. 

Anyone have a good recommendation for nachos while we wait?
