The best shrimp cocktail ever!! Huge and delish. Get it during happy hour and its half price! Get the large! It is perfectly seasoned and has tons of shrimp! Oh and they have some of the best chips too!

"Great service and the food was hot and EXCELLENT! Their special Queso "Bob Armstrong" Dip was well worth it. When I go I order their Cowboy Chicken Fried Steak, the fan favorite! The wife likes their Chile Relleno. The restaurant is very clean and well laid out as far as seating in the bar and the main dining room.

Step above the typical tex mex. service has been good. Queso dip worth a try. I like the seasoned veggies. Chicken fried steak a fan fav. They overextended their financing and had to close other locations. This one survived.

Very good food and great service in a setting that does not feel as crowded as many places do these days.

This is the second time we have visited Matt's and we were not disappointed. The food here is some of the best Tex Mex we have had and the portions are really big. Equally impressive was the Margarita (on the rocks) which was sensational.

The food and service was good. Nice atmosphere. Enchiladas and tacos were great. I had the mushroom and spinach enchiladas. Very good.

Food is very good but expect to pay higher than average prices. Not budget friendly by any means. Service is average.

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.
