As soon as you enter this restaurant, you feel like you leave the crowded
closed-in feeling of downtown Phoenix and escape to someplace that's, well,
not downtown Phoenix. My first thought is that this is probably the single
largest room I've seen in the area. It just doesn't fit, and it's a nice
El Matador can accommodate a very large or very small
group of people, and seating is prompt. Two types of salsas are brought
to the table -- One mild and slightly bitter, the other hotter and sweet.
They work best when eaten together.
The menu selection was
quite large, though the service on two occasions was nothing spectacular.
One thing that did catch my attention, however, was that the meats are
flavored very well with the perfect spices and very juicy.
Matador is located at 125 E. Adams in Phoenix.
