Recently had breakfast with a friend here. The scrambled eggs were tasty and served very quickly. I thought the bacon was good, thick cut, but needed to be a bit more crispy for my taste. They were able to provide rye toast, which I find to be unusual. The jam served with it was good, although I did forget to... More

Came to the Phoenix area from Toronto for a little mini holiday. After reading that the "Diners Drive ins and Dives " guy Guy Fieri visited this place I thought more than likely it would be a good place to have breakfast. I went to the 3118 E Camelback Rd (Biltmore) location yesterday ( Nov.29)which I understand is the newest... More

We had breakfast there it was a bit of a wait. The have a simple Menu with most of their food sourced locally. They use a lot Of spices in their meal preparation. It was very good.

Very popular breakfast spot. Came on a Saturday morning with a party of six. Wait was 30 - 40 minutes but well worth it! Excellent service once seated. Very friendly staff who were very prompt and quick with refills of coffee. Food was delicious. We tried five of the dishes and all were good. Enjoy!

Dueto reviews on Trip Advisor, and it appeared on Diners, Drive Inns and Dives, went here. Was good and fast. Busy. Had to wait about 30 min. but hotel rooms weren't ready so didn't mind. Have water outside to keep hydrated. Enjoyed. Breakfast Club next to Phoenix Palomar was about equal, in my opinion.

Matt's Big Breakfast is big in many Ways: Huge portions, wonderful and innovative menu items, great service, and a friendly atmosphere. I travel all over about 3 to 4 times per month from my home in Pennsylvania, and I can tell you Matt's is easily a 5 on a scale of 5. If I could give it a 6, I... More

We visited Matt's Big Breakfast after seeing it on TV and it didn't disappoint! We tried the Chop & Chick and it was the perfect sized meal for two (with a side salad). The chop was well seasoned and the home fries were so good! The wheat bread was also excellent. We went in the afternoon so it wasn't too... More

I had the pleasure of enjoying breakfast at this place. Everything about my experience was great. The employees welcome you with a smile and a greeting as soon as you walk in the door. Service was quick and my breakfast was amazing. Next time I return to town, I will surly be having another meal here.

No need to pay for $20 eggs downtown at the Sheraton Grand Phoenix when I can walk four blocks north to Matt's BIG Breakfast this morning!
