I had the lunch fajitas. Restaurant is clean. Reasonably priced reasonably good food. I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing however the menu has Seafood Steak comfort food and Mexican food. The menu seemed to have a little bit of an identity crisis. The only thing missing was Thai food Chinese food and Italian.

Normally I need to get in the mood for Mexican food but for some reason I was willing to try this restaurant and I am really glad I did. I had item #10 on the menu and it was a stuffed pepper with a great flavor and stuffed with chicken, walnuts, and raisins to name a few items. The flavor... More

I went here because Magazine had them as top 10 Chicken Fried Steak in Dallas. Not top 50. Stick with the Mexican menu items.

Frequent this restaurant a couple of times a month and always impressed with service and consistently good food. Brings back memories of Austin, Texas in the late 1960's. Very good Tex-Mex fare.

Once we find a great restaurant we tend to frequent it and not try a new one. We tried Matt's for the first time and we were very pleased! By the time hubby parked the car I already had a table and ordered drinks. The waiter was very helpful and attentive. He kept my tea glass full...which is a big... More

Matt's has a variety of food. However I normally eat the Mexican food and the Matt's fries as an appetizer is scrumptious. They have a small bar area and they do of course serve alcoholic beverages. The service is pretty good as well.

My fiancé and I love Tex-Mex and hoped for a great new find upon reading reviews on this establishment! When we arrived we were seated promptly but the floors are cracked and sticky when we were escorted to our seats our table was dirty and our seats were sticky as well. We did not receive any water or chips and... More

The food is great , the portions are huge. I got the petite fajitas both times and there was still plenty left over. I tried my husbands as well and it was all so good. The margaritas were awesome but they can sneak up on you :) The place can get busy so go early. so good.
