This place is awful. Tea was cloudy and tasted bad. Do not order the tenderloin in any entrée. It's not tenderloin it's skirt steak. Don't believe what they tell you when they say it's tenderloin because it's not. The chips are greasy. The manager was argumentative. Service not good. Ordered two margaritas, the first one came in a much larger... More

My wife and I were out riding, seen the placed and decided to stop. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. We were there a little on the early side, so we sat outside on the patio. Great food; great service; we will be back in the future. Tex-Mex at its best. Moderately priced overall, nothing outrageously expensive. Definitely worth the trip.

First time I have been to Matts so I didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised with the Food, Service and Affordable Prices. Had an appetizer and the Chicken Fried Steak Ranchero Style with rice and beans. Very good and a full plate so had to take some to go. Great atmosphere and very Friendly Staff. Recommend Matts...

Matt's is an interesting take on TexMex with an interesting selection of food. Think tacos, enchiladas, and similar but add to the mix Chicken fried steak with a kick. We found the ingredients used were high quality and very flavorful if not a bit tame. That is not to say they were bad, just not as spicy as most Tex... More

My husband and I both have had weightloss surgery. We love coming to Matt's and splitting an order of Migas. We asked them to exclude the roasted tomatoes and onions. It comes with beans, potatoes, and flour tortillas. So yummy!

Service is wonderful! The hot sauce is fresh! The margaritas are not my favorite but the hot sauce is the best in town. The food is really good....but did I mention the hot sauce?

In the crowded world of Mexican restaurants this is one of our favorites. Food is Tex Mex but there is a subtile drift toward more traditional Texas cooking, as with the chicken fried steaks that have become one of my favorites. With the home made salsa, the chips and salsa are almost too good and I generally eat too many.... More

I had high hopes for this restaurant, we had been told by several people to try it. We had a party of 8 so sometimes that can be a challenge to a server. However, the place was dead as there were only a few other parties there, so we had high expectations. We were hungry so we wanted to try... More

Staff was friendly, we were served at a reasonable time, and the price was fair. The food tasted very good and the beer was cold. Will return in the future.
