Went here as a group of 6. Meals looked tasty, great size but I chose the wrong dish and had a salad, which wasn't great and had hardly any taste. May try again but would definitely have something else

My first visit to Matt's and I was disappointed. Two for lunch and we both ordered bean and cheese nacho's. One order of bean nacho's were beautiful. Chips all laid out on the plate topped with beans and melted cheese. However, my order came out different. A bowl of chips with some refried beans dumped on top and the cheese... More

There is a variety of options to pick from off the menu. I chose chicken fingers. What a great dish! There are specials also. The drinks are good. Good atmosphere and wait staff. I could recommend going for lunch and dinner.

My family and I have had several meals here. I highly recommend the Bob's Queso Dip and the their special Stuffed Poblano Pepper with chicken. Great food, great drinks and service.

We have always enjoyed Matt's beginning with its old location in Lakewood. We felt there was some decline when Matt's moved to its Greenville location but we had our love restored when we went to the new location in Garland. My Chili Relleno was as excellent as my first taste years ago. We highly recommend Matt's and will certainly put... More

I had eaten at Matt's just over a year ago and thought it was excellent, definitely on the upper end of Mexican food. We ate there on 2/28 and I was very disappointed. Everything was very, very average, like all the other chain sit down Mexican establishments, but the price was higher. I can't imagine going back.

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 poor service.
