Foursquare Tips

  • By far, the best breakfast you will have in Phoenix.
  • Matt's is a Phoenix classic. Get breakfast or lunch (after 11am) from 6:30am to 2:30pm. They source the best ingredients possible. There may be a line when you get there, but it's worth the wait.
  • The best breakfast joint on the planet. I live right up the road but it's worth a 100 mile drive.
  • Absolutely DON'T go to Denny's! There's no substitute for fresh squeezed OJ, real maple syrup, and real cream butter.
  • Rosemary-flecked home fries are one delicious reason breakfast gets all the glory, but lunch's Big Butter Burger, classic Reuben and Midwest-style chili are just as praiseworthy.
  • Get the waffle. It's amazingly delicious.
  • Plan on waiting if you go anytime past 8AM,but you will NOT be disappointed. Hog & Chick is my favorite on the menu and I always add a side of pancakes :)
  • Best of Phoenix Winner 2011: Best Hangover Breakfast. The morning after can be rough, so roll in to order the hot and chick, a big stack of pancakes or the dame fine butter burger.
  • Since being featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, you can expect a long wait to eat at Matt's - but it's totally worth it. Breakfast is served all day.
  • The honey lemonade is amazing
  • Although the building is small and does not seat many people at one time, this place is well worth the wait!!! You haven't lived until you have experienced a food coma from Matt's... definitely 5 star
  • Get the hash browns. They are the best I have ever had ever, ever.
  • The Clarendon Hotel loves Matts... Keepin it local... Fun tip.. When there's a long list, cheer when people aren't there for their table and boo when they are...
  • If the wait is long, you can put your name in and go wait at their coffee shop (Giant Coffee). They'll call Giant when your table is ready! It's excellent coffee too.
  • Fun tip: phone in your order. It takes 10 minutes. Then eat it with the people waiting for an hour to get in.
  • Try the Reuben! Lightly grilled rye bread, layered with melt-in-your-mouth corned beef, sauerkraut, melted Swiss, homemade Thousand Island dressing - it's one of Michele Laudig's 100 Favorite Dishes!
  • Best breakfast. Pancakes are amazing and the 5 spot is delicious. Try the honey lemonade!
  • Get the Five spot. It is a breakfast sandwich with two eggs two slices of thick cut bacon American ,cheese and onions
  • Eggs Benedict. Thursdays. Enough Said.
  • Everything's great.
