About
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.
