We have been here several times and food is always good. They also serve brunch starting at 11:00 a.m. The mexican food is great but we also go there to get their chicken fried steak. It is served a few different ways and it is a big serving. This location also has a bar and outside seating.

I was in town for a high school reunion. Matt's was near the reunion center. Large dining room. I had the beef burrito. The center part of the restaurant was a monster mural on the wall with the owners, political figures, and many celebrities. Many are quite recognizable. If you ask, a clue sheet is available to identify all the... More

Simply amazing brisket fajitas. Delicious steaks. You cannot visit here without starting your meal with some Bob Armstrong Dip.

Places like this are usually a bit noisy, but the food was very good, the service attentive, overall a good time. I'd go there again.

Like...I really really love this queso. God only knows what they put in it to make it so addictive. But, that matters not bc it is insanely tasty. Fajitas....carnitas...chicken fried steak...tacos...also really good. Obtw...did I mention how good the queso is?

The food is always spot on -- this is one of our favorite places to satisfy our Mexican food cravings. We've been going to Matt's for over 25 years, back when they only had a small restaurant in East Dallas. We are so happy to have one close to us!

Went because it was a short walk from our hotel, but it was a nice surprise! Loved the GIGANTIC chips and enchiladas, especially the spinach and mushroom ones. (Pro Tip: don't leave half a burrito in a poorly-insulated hotel mini fridge because it will smell like death.)

Great overall restaurant, with festive atmosphere. 5 star food, great menu, very accommodating chef, who will modify food needs/wants...just great overall service. The employees always seem to be happy, energetic and wanting to please! Great customer service. May I also add, their Margarita's are to die for. This restaurant is a family owned restaurant with a rich history. Their pride... More
