We can't remember a time when the Matador wasn't part of our lives, and we're glad. Because life without the refried beans from Matador would be a life barely worth living. The burros here are so big, you'll end up taking half home with you. Try the Colorado Burrito, spicy and chili-filled and scrumptious, or the carne asada, a signature dish here. Not in the mood for Mexican food? Matador also serves Greek dishes. We recommend the gyro, a golden pita stuffed with thin-sliced beef, onion, tomato, pickle, and served with a side of fries. Feeling like a slice of America? Matador makes one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches in town.
