If you don't count calories-- pretty genuine Chicago style Italian beef sandwiches and dogs. Fresh bread (I don't think it's Gonella, which was the Chicago staple) beef, peppers and delicious (greasy) sauce-- just the way it's supposed to be. They've upgraded the seating, and the food has been consistent.

The hot dogs are wonderful. I grew up in Chicago and there's definitely good competition here. Their homemade chips are also wonderful. Just started serving beer recently which is a nice touch. Very family-friendly.

I'm a polish sausage lover. These folks do a great job. I also enjoy their homemade chips. Unfortunately, (well maybe not for my waistline), I can't get by here more often.

Just returned from a trip to Cornelius and had an opportunity to dine at Matt's Chicago Dog. The staff was very friendly, courteous, and helpful. They answered all of our questions and even let one of us try a sample of beer before ordering. We ordered a Large Chicago Style pizza for four adults, an Italian Beef Sandwich, and Chicago's...

Have visitted a few times. Hot dogs are the safest bet, but they are average. Pizza is bland. I tried the beef and took it back. Far too greasy for my taste. Not on top of my list.

Great hotdogs, sandwiches, burgers.. Pizza is just ok.. But it's new on the menu so hoping they will fix it up. Great meal if your looking for greasy yumminess:)

Their Italian Beef Sandwich tastes exactly as good as Portillo's in Chicago. Now that they have Chicago Pizza too, I can't wait to get back and try that too. Great environment and it couldn't be any cleaner. Get the hot and sweet peppers on your sandwich and do pour some au jus on it.

Matt's is an OK place to stop and get some food that is just above fast food. I had the Chicago beef sandwich which was fine. They have your standard bar and grill menu of burgers, hot dogs, chicken fingers, etc. You order at the counter and then they bring your order to your table. Drinks are self-serve. The restaurant...

I am so happy to have found Matt's. the food is just like eating at Portillo's in Chicago (minus the snow). Very nice people here and spotlessly clean. Will be back many times.

I am back in the area, after living in Greenville, SC for the last three years. I never spent any time in Cornelius, besides to drive through on I-77. I noticed Matt's as I was taking the side roads home one night, and finally had the chance to stop in. Food is fresh, and served hot. Staff was great and... More
