Worth the drive!!

My wife and I went to Matt's El Rancho for a date night. Our waitress was fantastic. We really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere. The menu was extensive, prices were reasonable, and food was delicious. We look forward to going back soon!

So So

The last time we went there the food was o.k. but the waiter acted like he had a burr in his underwear. The time before that the food was cold and the manager was a jerk. We waited two years before we went again. Thought by then the people had all changed. No such luck. The food was fair AND the waiter knocked over my water glass. Never went back. It's too loud and clang bangy in there.

Serious down grade...

Well first I want to say the service was absolutely on top of things! Every one that we saw from the time we walked in until we were seated, served and left was very nice. The food on the other hand was the pits! It's like they down graded their cook and the quality of the food. I have eaten there a long time ago, and was expecting to be WOWed like I was then...Sad to say, I was not.. My friend had the veggie fajit... view more

Great Lunch Prices

Always a bustling restaurant, the great thing I think is the lunch special prices. Despite the rising prices of restaurants nowadays, this restaurant keeps the lunch specials at a low flat $5-6. I must say i was a little disappointed in the salsa though.

A True Austin Tradition

For those of us born in Austin, Matt's is more than a restaurant. It is where we grew up. Our families took us once a week and we take our families once a week and so on. The place has been in business for over 58 years so they must be doing something right. I know Austin has changed a lot in the last 15 years or so. Now trailer taco stands are all the rage and if a place has been in business 10 years, it is con... view more

Austin's Best Tex-Mex

In 1968 I visited Matt's on a High School trip with about 13 other people. It was the first time i had ever eaten Mexican Food I loved it . Couldn't get enough of it.

I have driven back and forth to Austin for both business and... view more

My family and I love this place. It's not really close to our home but whenever we go to the Big Top Candy shop, we make it to Matts for lunch or dinner!

Don't fill up on chips!

The chips and Bob queso were awesome! The kids Tacos lacked some flavor but most kids would find them right on the money. I prefer the migas which were bursting with flavor with the right balance of crunch and ooze. Mom would not switch plates with me so I had to be happy with three bites. The kid bean cheese nachos were good..but then not good enough to get more than a 1 shrimp trade of my dad's Shrimp Ala Matt Ma... view more
