Matador debuts a new specials menu today. I spotted something that looked promising: carnitas tamales. Click “more” to see the menu and to read about the Matador burger.

Take a look at the new lunch/dinner specials menu at Matador:

Way back in December, remember that series I wrote about the 20 bar burgers you have to eat before you die? I wrote about the Matador burger. It was the one with chewy bacon and sprigs of cilantro and chipotle mayo. It isn’t quite up there with the Asado or Walker burgers, but it’s in the same neighborhood of well-composed burgers. Also worth trying at Matador? The sangria.

Where: 721 Pacific Ave., Tacoma
