1St Drive-in in the state of Montana. Authentic 40's diner with its original fountain, counter and cast iron grill. Matt's is known for its 100% ground round hamburgers, homemade fries and ice cream. It has been family owned since 1943, and prides itself on the quality of its food. Very nostalgic, listed on the National Historic Registry.

Matts has been in business for eons and has the best burgers. Many other items including shakes that my hubby loves. A must and only a block off the Interstate (Montana Street) turn left at the fork and Matts is behind the Exxon.

Step back in time… This was once a “drive-in” served by girls on rollerskates. Now all services inside at a soda fountain bar. They make milkshakes old-school style in a tin container that makes enough for two soda glasses...Or you can just use two straws....More

Amazing Counter service like in the 50-60s with about seating for 20 at the most. Family run since the 1930s and unchanged other than price. VERY reasonable and the best and biggest milk shakes ever. Over 12 varieties and are super large in the stainless...More
