First Review by veganbeing

It was okay - Edit

I was incredibly excited about vegan options here. However, 4 out of the 5 visits I had to here, I was told that the potatoes were vegan. On the 5th visit I was told that they cook them in with fish. Even though, without potatoes, you could still create a vegan meal, they lost my trust.

Best vegan burrito place in town - Edit

Matador is set apart from other burrito places in town for a few reasons. One, the staff is knowledgeable about what is and isn't vegan, and the vegan options are really good--flavored tortillas, rice, beans, sauteed veggies, white and sweet potatoes, guac, and AMAZING salsas/hot sauces. The vegan options are even labeled on the menu. Two, they have a great rotating selection of craft beer on tap (including Grimm Brothers and PCBC) AND in the bottle--and all bottles of beer are under $2, even the microbrews. Three, it's locally owned and operated with a dedication to using local produce and ingredients. It's on the south side of town, but a good place to grab dinner before or after seeing a movie at the nearby Cinemark (I've even brought their burritos into the theater with me before!).

Pros: Vegan options are labeled, Great cheap beer, AMAZING homemade hot sauces

Cons: Food workstation can be messy

Jzaiger13 21 Mar 2017 - Beware, I just learned the potatoes are not actually vegan even though they advertise it as so. I had a staff member be honest with me about this. :(

Favorite burrito place! - Edit

FREE guac with the vegan burrito? Nice! But not if you add the sauteed veggies, which is a bummer. I believe they saute with water, their huge list of salsas is impressive and delicious, and beer is always less than two bucks! Oh and they support local farms. Food is delicious and staff is very friendly.

Pros: Great prices, Vegan is on the menu!, Local establishment from CSU alumni

Cons: I can't walk there

Best burritos EVER! - Edit

All of the tortillas (except the cheddar one), both rices, fried sweet or russet potatoes and all three beans (whole black, pinto and refried) are VEGAN! Plus, the owner is super nice to vegans: you get free guacamole on your meal. Plus, you can get chips + beans or salsa or both. Don't forget to get your freshly-grilled veggies. Yes, they grill them after you order -- and they're also no extra charge! Fresh, home made salsas vary with the season. Try their fruit salsas.. they're the best you will ever taste. I recommend the strawberry salsa. But their cranberry is a close second! Don't forget their sweet potato soups (when they have them) and pumpkin salsas, usually in the fall. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.

Oh, they give huge portions so you may want to split your meal with a friend.

Enjoy it! And be sure the owner knows you appreciate all of his yummy vegan options.

Pros: Many options., Knowledgeable staff., Generous owner.

Cons: Also serve flesh.
