Average Tex-Mex – I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD, and with the plethora of Tex-Mex, Mexican and even Spanish offerings in the Dallas area MATTITO'S IS NOT ONE OF THE BEST! I don't mind going... yes, chips and salsa are fine, patio is decent... but the service is usually haphazard, and the food quality is so-so.
Let's compare.... Manny's, Mia's, Uncle Julio's, ummm... Gloria's even! You can get better so-called Tex-Mex at the Salvadorian restaurant! Another great option low on the radar---Mario's (Lemmon Ave)!! Great service, great menu options, delicious guac, tender flavorful brisket tacos! STRONG margaritas and many to pick from! Not expensive...
Skip Mattito's and head elsewhere!!....
Service horrible, food not so great either – I went on a recommendation. Very disappointed, should have walked out the door when the hostess was rude from the get go. Waitstaff was just as bad.
We went for a girls night out, there were 5 of us. Hostess sat us at a tiny table. Not enough room for all our drinks and food.
The waitress was rude and argumentative. She forgot my drink. We had 2 vegetarians, she didn't know which items were vegetarian on the menu and and seemed po'd that we would even ask.
Lots of sighing and rolling eyes by the waitress. When she brought items she would slam them down on the table. Scary!
The only nice people were the bus boys who kept our water/tea full. We ate our small basket of chips fast. I ordered a full queso that ended up only half eaten because we never got anymore chips!
Ate the avocado enchiladas which were creamy but bland. Margarita was okay. Not a place I would ever go back. Manager needs to be fired. Everyone who wrote good reviews must have started with some strong margaritas first --
Awesome!!! – My boyfriend and I went to Dallas for a 3 day vacation. We wanted to have a nice dinner and this is the place we decided on. BEST DECISION EVER! Got there about 30 mins before closing time and they didn't rush us at all. The chips and salsa were amazing. Our food was delicious and came out about 10 minutes after we ordered. Friendly waitstaff and laid back atmosphere.
Fun atmosphere, great food! – There are a lot of Tex Mex places to choose from in Dallas, but this one is a cut above. We were there as part of a large group, a company party, and Mattito's was perfect for that. Attentive wait staff were right on top of things - even with our large group. The colorful, festive atmosphere was great for our 'fiesta'. The food was the best part. Everyone with our group was happy with their order. Can't wait to take my family back to the place with me.
Best Restaurant for Tex Mex in Uptown – Mattito's is my favorite restaurant for Tex Mex food! The "Bob Armstrong" dip is a must! I don't think it's on the menu so you'll have to ask for it. I love the beef fajita salad - their orange chipotle dressing is awesome! Baja chicken is delicious, too! In fact, everything I've ordered from the menu is superb! The atmosphere is fun and festive. The wait staff are friendly and always go above and beyond. I go often and have never encountered inadequate service. I like that valet parking is offered as parking is limited so it's very handy to get out right at the front door. Mattto's Sunday brunch is very popular so be prepared for a wait (I think brunch starts at 10:30am) but it is well worth the wait. Their selection of food is enormous! The chocolate fondue is my favorite! They are accommodating to children as I've taken my young son several times. Definitely check it out - you won't be disappointed!
Baja Chicken!! MMMmmmmm – Went to Mattito's again last week for ritas and dinner, it was really crowded but the food and service were excellent as usual. Cool art on the walls and awesome new TVs in the bar! Mpac says get the Baja Chicken and a rita...mmmm!
Unique Mexican Choices – My friend and I visited for the first time last Friday night, and it was hopping! We waited about 25 min for a table, but were able to squeeze into the bar for this fantastic blue margarita that we found out later is called a Rumbarita. These are really tasty! When we finally got seated, it took a couple of minutes for our server to get to us, but he was very friendly and helpful once he got there. They had advertised "avocado enchiladas" on the sign out front, so I had those, and my friend had grilled fish tacos. The avocado enchiladas were unbelievable! Fresh avocados in corntortlllas with this creamy cilantro sauce, I've never tasted anything like this before. The fish tacos were also good, they were garnished with this kind of slaw salad that was really tasty. The place was packed with all kinds of people, from families, to dating couples, and a few big groups. I would reccommend Mattito's to anyone, and I'll definitely be back!
This place had some good food – The brunch was great though it took me 30 mins to get a table it was worth the wait.
DELICIOUS – This place is fabulous. The food is beyond great! My kids clean their plates there, which doesn't happen most places. The portions are generous, the atmosphere is bright and festive, the bus staff is ever ready to fill water/tea glasses and did I mention the food is fantastic??? Authentic, not uppity, honest to goodness Tex Mex. Wear loose fitting pants, you'll be stuffed and happy when you leave.
Best mexican restaurant ! – Ok people, this dallas mexican restaurant is the only patio I know in DALLAS THAT DOES NOT FACE A STREET, HAS FANTASTIC MEXICAN FOOD AND GREAT HAPPY HOUR SPECIALS. The brunch at this tex-mex/ Mexican restaurant is amazing as well. If you are on my face book and reading this, you can call me anytime and I will go to this dallas restaurant ANY time. Great service, great food and great fun.
