I have only tried the burgers here but I was told I had to go and get one and it really was very good.

DeMatteos' has a good selection of draft beers. Many brand names and a few micro beers. The clientele was mixed, older and younger generations. The menu was sad. The place describes their burgers as the best in town. They are frozen patties thrown on a charbroil grill. The bartender was our waitress, bartender, and cook all in one. No French... More

The food was very good and your portions very big. The service was also very good on a very busy day. The price is right. Just don't order fries.

Yeah, it's a bar. Yeah, it can ge loud, but that is just because people are having a great time. Whether or not you drink, the burgers are to die for!

My expectations were set going in and I think that's critical to a review. If your looking for a nice local pub with great burgers, this a place to visit. They have quite a few craft beers on tap and the burger I got was great. It's not an upscale Italian resturaunt like the name may imply so that may... More

If you go to DeMatteo's for lunch you will never be disappointed, The place will be very busy, Help yourself to the Hot Peppers, Provolone Cheese, and fresh bread in the back room. These are put out at 11:30 and they are usually gone by 12:45. There are about 20 different beers on tap. The menu is primarily sandwiches, which... More

Went for lunch, the food was as good as the last time I was in there (about 15 years ago). They have added a dining room, which is somewhat noisy due to a wood ceiling, and the old dining room is now a barroom. It's really a neiborhood joint, but don't miss it.

With a name like DeMatteo's, I was expecting at least a few Italian menu items, and as it was Friday, not even a Fish Fry. Nope. Sandwiches and barfood, that's it. We sat outside as it was a pleasant evening. It was not very busy. Still, it took over 45 minutes to get out food -- sandwich and a salad... More

DeMatteo's is classic locals bar but welcoming to all. If you are looking for deep fried anything, keep on going. There is no fryer. But, the meats for sandwiches are sliced to order,the burgers are great, greens are yummy , and they graciously accommodate my vegan sandwich request. Their beverage pours are generous. You can't beat the value! You should... More

Not satisfied with the service or the taste of the food. This is the second time I had the same experience. I should probably just order beer and forget about the food.
