  • This ATX institution has never strayed from its winning formula of authentic Mexican food made from scratch, on the premises, and according to revered family recipes.
  • Get the Bob Armstrong dip. Soooo good.
  • Don't forget they are closed on Tuesdays. I have found myself driving to Matt's many times on the WRONG day of the week, only to find myself crying in the empty parking lot. Never again!
  • If you're wondering about appetizers, the Bob Armstrong dip is a big "duh." Finish off your triple threat appetizer with some tacos al carbon and a margarita.
  • We've never gone home unhappy after a visit to Matt's, thanks to their Bob Armstrong dip, affordable range of price points and dedication to classic Tex-Mex. [Eater 38 Member]
