Awesome Tex-Mex!!! yummy – I have eaten at almost every mexican restaraunt in town... This is hands down one of the BEST! It left me definitely wanting to tell others... I took my best girlfriend there for her birthday today... We had the Bob Armstrong dip (heard so much about it) It was perfect...really fresh guacamole & sour cream, flavorful ground beef, and thick wonderfully cheesy queso. A small order was enough for 2 hungry women to share! Complimentary tortillas (ask for them) were hot and melt in your mouth. Chips and salsa were great too. We shared the lunch burrito plate.. Both agreed - Best burrito we have ever had. Great flavor to the chili, beef and cheese. Highly recommend... Neat location & great patio.
Bob bob bob – My wife and I can't resist splitting a Bob Armstrong on the patio. not the smoked Bob, the original Bob. If we feel really hungry, we go for a whole bowl. After that, we're usually too full to eat entire entrees, so we split an enchilada plate or something. I prefer sitting under the umbrellas outside rather than the upper deck area. But, if you have to eat inside, try to sit facing the large mural. You'll enjoy naming all the characters.
Local-favorite restaurant next to the Lakewood Theater dishes Tex-Mex fare with a smile. – The Scene
The high ceiling features two oversized, ancient-looking chandeliers to illuminate the large dining room. Booths along the front windows offer a view of the Lakewood center, while tables on the upper area give a view of the bustling dining room. One wall is devoted to the culmination of awards Matt's has earned over the years, while a mural of Texas celebrities covers the opposite wall. The patio is relaxing in pleasant weather. Servers are courteous, helpful and quick.
The menu is traditional Tex-Mex cuisine with a few American options. The Bob Armstrong dip is a favorite starter: guacamole and ground beef smothered in queso. For those not sure what to order, combination dinners are a good way to go, such as the No. 1 dinner with an enchilada (chicken or beef), taco and tamale. The tacos al carbon are flavorful and filling; enough for two people.
I don't get it. Just mediochre. – Okay, so people are always saying how great Matt's Ranchero is but it just doesn't do it for me. Yes, the outside patio is great but not when you get a smoker next to you or a party of silly pre-teens. The service is less than impressive and usually it takes much longer than it should to get refills, food and the check. I've tried the fajitas and was dissapointed with the flavor of the meat and sides. The tortillas are nothing special and the hot sauce is even less interesting. The one thing I have liked are the Chicken Quesadillas. They are very tasty and it's a good portion of food. I would not recommend this place for date or business meeting. If you are looking to drink, smoke and wait longer than you should for your not so tasty food, then this is the place for you.
Best TexMex in Dallas! – I love this place! It's comfortable and unpretentious, but you won't find a better TexMex dinner in town. Start with the Bob Armstrong dip and a margarita. Any dinner on the menu is wonderful. You will not be disappointed!
Chicken Enchiladas, fajata tacos – All their food is fresh and good. It would be nice if they had delivery or a place for pickup for food to go. But other than that it is good.
