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 your free sherbet or praline after any meal.
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.
Get the Bob Armstrong dip. Soooo good.
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]
This is one of the greatest spots to enjoy with a large group of friends. Sit on the patio and enjoy being in Austin.
SXSW Recommendation from Sietsema- some of the best Tex-Mex in the world. Chili con queso (a spicy dip made with a cheese that owes a big debt to Velveeta) is legendary, and so are their enchiladas.
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!
Try the brisket or beef old fashioned tacos. Salmon is slammin' too!
Bob Armstrong queso dip is a MUST... Sooo good!
Best guacamole I've ever had!!!!
Lots of their food can be made gluten free, but you need to ask. Chips are all clear, though, they have their own fryer.
Smoked chicken dillas r the best!
MIGAS. GUACAMOLE. MIGAS. GUACAMOLE. yep.
Enchiladas, tacos, pralines. They're all fantastic. This place's longevity speaks for itself.
Fish tacos, fried, corn tortillas & cilantro dressing.... SO GOOD!
It is indeed famous and is by far my favorite Mexican food restaurant in Austin. Great prices for great food. Friendly atmosphere. STRONGLY recommend.
Great place if you to make a reservation for a large group of people or need to get your party catered.
This is Tex Mex done right, straight up. Great brunch on the weekend, impressive tequila selection.
Smoked brisket tacos and tacos al pastor are both yummy.
Try the Bob Dip...it's the perfect combination of queso, beef, and guac!
Queso is so-so.
Get the Bob Armstrong dip!! Taco salad is amazing too!! Everything here is good!
Matt's = Love
Frozen sangria margarita. Do it now. Also, the patio is walled and covered in fans, so you can enjoy outside even in the heat here.
Order a large bob!! Best queso in town!
Where the white unite over frozen margs and mediocre Mexican food.
Some people turn their noses up to this place, but they shouldn't. Good tex-mex and a great patio and delish drinks.
Queso and fish tacos rocked.
Eat brisket tacos!!
Try the "Smokey Bob" - off menu- it's a regular Bob Armstrong, but with beef brisket!
Espolon tequila margarita is awsome
Get the tacos al pastor and wash it down it with one of the best mex-marts in town.
Just had dinner at Matt's El Rancho. Carne Guisada Plate was tasty and the service was great! Not overly priced!
the tacos here are an affront to everything good in the world
Solid menu all around, but you'll leave stuffed
The bob armstrong dip is the best dip in Austin
Chips and tortillas homemade ! Recommend the fajitas
Smoked Chicken Enchiladas very tasty.
Home of the Huge Chip.
Sit on the back porch. Get the Mexican Martini. Best queso this Texan has ever had. SERIOUSLY
Beef tostadas compuestas with Ranchero sauce!
Good food, fast, great for large groups.
Get some delicious tacos on Earth Day, and 5% of your check goes to eco-friendly causes.
They will make a margarita using fresh squeezed jalapeños to make it more spicy.
Get the Relleno, it's great down to the pecans and raisins. :)
This place is the best! Best Mexican food!
Nachos, nachos, nachos!
