Excellent Authentic – Great! From out of state and went with friends. Everyone with us tried something different and everyone enjoyed their meal. Great Service, Great Food, Great Atmosphire. Surprised by the reasonable prices. A must try.
NOT AT ALL FRIENDLY – Rude wait staff, ruder management. Asked for a table to accommodate a friend in a wheel chair and it turned into a huge argument with the staff and manager. Incredible!
Might have been worth the hassle if the food was good enough, but with the plethora of GREAT tex-mex in this city, why put up with attitude, especially if you or one of your party are disabled.
Saturday lunch specials! – Great patio! I went to Mattito?s Tex- Mex in Uptown yesterday for a snack and cold drink while the Uptown Festival was going on. What an oasis! On a Saturday around 3pm, it is not too crowded, and the patio have fantastic vines sheltering you from the Texas sun and the birds are chirping. The service was excellent, the ice tea fresh, the cips warm and fresh and the margarita strong. We were offered the daily lunch specials on a SATURDAY! This alone I would come back for. This is the first cost saving Saturday lunch location I have ever been to! I love the waiter that was gracious enough to point out the lunch specials and help us all with the tightening of the belt while still enjoying the treat of fantastic Mexican food that we could not possibly make better at home. Their Brunch is fantastic which everybody knows about, but I strongly recommend you try a off time and day for your own taste of a Mexican oasis right here in Uptown.
Fantastic Tex-Mex in Dallas AND now Frisco! – Wowee! We went to the Frisco location AND the Dallas Location in the past week for Fajitas in Frisco and Brunch in Dallas and both were superb! I LOVE Mattito?s! The tortillas were fresh, the salsa homemade, the service excellent and the atmosphere exceptional. I have lived in Dallas only for 5 years and must say for this area the quality and price point is far above most of the tex-mex out there. Give them a try I think you will find THIS companies TEX-MEX an eye opener on what it should taste like 
There are better places – I went with a large group and we had an awful experience. Their drinks weren't great. The food wasn't all that good. Our waitress was beyond awful. When people tried to order a regular margarita she would say well you could get a bad margarita like you want or you can get a top shelf good one. Then they refused to split up our check of 14 people. The staff stated if you don't request seperate checks before you order, they can not split them. It seemed obvious that 14 women would be on seperate checks or perhaps the staff could ask if it was seperate. Their swirl margaritas have raspberry in it and it makes the drink very sweet and intolerable. In a city with so many different choices for Mexican food, I would suggest you look somewhere else.
Bland + overcooked + rubbery meat + sloppy plates = DISAPPOINTED CUSTOMER – I was HIGHLY disappointed in this restaurant's food. I'm very familiar with this kind of food, but this place let me down. Matitos had been recommended to me by numerous people, but when we went and I ordered the light fajitas (that come with broccoli and cauliflower instead of onions and green peppers) the fajita steak was overcooked and the whole meal was bland. The fajita meat and broccoli tasted more like Chinese food beef and broccoli than anything Tex-Mex. The meat was rubbery and borderline inedible. I came into the restaurant very hungry, but the food was so bad that I couldn't even eat 1/3 of my meal. The most "seasoning" that was on my plate was spicy jalapeno in my pico de gallo (I like spicy food, but that's all there was to the meal!). My boyfriend got tacos, which were under-seasoned and bland as well. His refried beans tasted worse than "El Paso" canned beans. He remarked, "This tastes like cafeteria food" which was right on the money. However, the service was very good, and our waiter was nice and helpful. The margaritas are also very good. When I told the waiter about my disappointment with my meal when he asked how everything was, he took it off of the check when I didn't even ask him to, which I thought was appropriate. Overall, I would commend this restaurant on its service and lively atmosphere, but if you want a good meal, you're better off going somewhere else.
Best Brunch – I had a very small wedding and had the reception during brunch and just rented out the patio. This was the most amazing brunch I could of ever imagined and all my guests were very happy and impressed. This is hands down the best place to go for brunch in Dallas while still being a pretty un-pretentious. My suggestion is to go when they open to get better and faster service.
The most AMAZING Brunch I have ever been to! EVER! – This is a must go! First I have to say that this is the freshest, most flavorful brunch I have ever been to. I generally do not go to buffets, so take this endorsement to heart. I am a foodie!!!! I started with Two Chicken Jalapeno and Two Pork Tamales with Tomatillo and Chile Con Carne sauces. I then moved to a combo of BEEF and CHICKEN FAJITAS with Grilled with onions and sweet peppers, they were so moist and tender it was a mouth watering bite! Then I went a little crazy?.They had enchiladas, that were perfectly seasoned, huge platters of fruit and cheeses , a OMLETT BAR with a omelet chef cooking them to order, the taquitos were constantly being filled because they were so crispy and tasty they were flying off the banquet table, the food went on and on?.. as I sat in this unique and festive atmosphere of lush patios and fountains in a ranch-like setting it contributed to the enjoyment I had people watching as I feasted while the very attentive wait staff kept my glasses of champagne and tea full as I waited for my brunch to settle for the BEST part?. THE CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN!!!! YES A CHOCOLATE fountain that a gal dips and drenches big fresh strawberries, sweet pineapple and other delectable fruits of the season. Finished off with a steaming cup of coffee, I now know why they have received so many awards, from so many people and have opened another banquet facility room across the parking lot to accommodate the many many wedding parties and family or company functions and celebrations they host throughout the year! My hat off to you and TEN stars if they had that many on this page, they would all be yours!
Chile relleno – When I was there last week, the beef chile relleno had a nice crispy crust -- at least around the edges. When this dish is good here, it is really good
The Best Mexican food in Dallas. – This is some good eating. The quality of the food is superb and the Margaritas are the best. Menu selection is large and everything I?ve had has been excellent. They tend to get busy in the evenings and you may have to wait in line, but it?ll be worth it.
