Nice Burger but to Tots!

We enjoyed our burgers. The slaw was crisp and fresh, clearly just made. We liked the sweet tots and fried Okra. We got a beautiful day in January and were able to eat outdoors.

It was pretty crowded in a small space but we were shown seats in the back. The walls were cleverly covered with all kinds of customer's comments making it fun to read. They brought me a diet coke. My husband wanted wine but they didn't have it. I ordered a veggie burger and fries. The burger came with a soft... More

We were on our way home to Savannah from Myrtle Beach (the scenic route) and we were in Summerville around lunch time and started looking in Google Maps. I wanted a burger so Matt's popped up on my map. When we pulled up in front my wife was a little skeptical at the outside look...But we decided to be adventurous... More

I go there at least once every week or two. The best burger I've had period! Gotta have the chili! I get the Bid Daddy, fry and drink. You will leave full! Very reasonably priced, the greatest down home staff and management, and I haven't had anything that wasn't good from there in the 4 years I've lived here. I... More

Leaving Charleston, we decided to try a place in Summerville and since we were in the mood for a burger, we thought we would give it a go here. I ordered a regular cheeseburger which was ok and my wife ordered the Chili-cheese burger. Matt's interpretation of this meal was unexpected. When she opened the styrofoam lid, she found a... More

The place may look a little like a dive but has a homey atmosphere. The burgers and chili are some of the best I have ever had. I especially love the 1/2 sausage and 1/2 beef hamburger. The check fries are very good and you get a lot of fries for the money. 1 Basket should be enough for 3-4... More

Home made beef patties with grilled onions are delicious. My husband loves their chili burgers. If you have a huge appetite that also have an enormous chili cheese burger. This would be a three day meal for me!

I was asking around Summerville for the best burger in town and here's what I got. Hardees, Five Guys, and Sonic.......really? So good old TA advised a liitle dive called Matts and they steered me straight. They have some awesome burgers! Someone said they weren't thrilled about the thin patties so I ordered a double (sausage burger). What they didn't... More

By far the Best Burgers and Fries in Summerville, SC! These are real, home made by hand patties that come with all the fixings. The fries have a season that really makes them special
