Nothing special here. Normal TexMex food with less than average service. Nice interior finish out. Nice outdoor patio and bar, but entire staff is in serious need of training. Went with large party and even scheduled in advance. Took us two hours to get our food another hour to get our check. Very... read more

Food is good...service and margaritas even better. Patio is nice if the weather is good. Kid friendly. Very good choice in the area.

Service is always very slow but the food is great. Try the jalopeno margarita for a change. Best Chile relleno ever.

Great patio- Hope they stay open with a bankrupt filing made earlier this last month or so! Servers are young not too experienced - waits are long between ordering and items arrivals .

Our family of 4 went to this place hoping to enjoy it. The parking lot started with a rude person backing into our parking space even though we had our blinker on to turn into the spot- but that's no fault of the restaurant. We were seated very quickly. Our waitress was very nice, service was awesome- no complaints there.... More

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!
