Matthews is tops when it comes to "meat & threes"! This place is an area institution that has kept me coming back for about a decade now. The menu varies from day to day, but the quality never changes!

This was my first time eating at Matthew's. I was not disappointed! I love a good fried chicken and enjoyed each bite of the breast I had here. Nice folks run the place. I give it a thumbs up!

The food here is very good and the atmosphere is pleasant. The place is always packed and there is a line so get there early at lunch to beat the rush. You cannot go wrong with the daily special.
