I was anxious to try their famous chili rellenos but found them to be disappointing. Just sticking some taco meat in a relleno doesn't do anything for me. In fact, it kind of ruined the experience. The owner took some time to casually walk by and sit by me and chat for a minute. I enjoyed that. I just wish... More

Because we were with a large group, Matta's only allowed us to order from a limited "group menu" where the prices were all higher than ordering off the regular menu. I always order fish tacos and these were the worst I've ever had. Most people in our group were disappointed by the food quality. Giving a "2" rating because the... More

Still not a fan of walking in and ordering from a menu board. Food was good, very bland for mexican. 1 and 2 plate dinners have lots of beans and rice. Tacos were pretty good.

They are known for their Hot Salsa! (At least in my book). I have tried a lot of salsa in my day and this is BY FAR THE BEST! You have to try the Hot Salsa when you are in town. I usually order the bean burro or robert's tacos (which is a deep fried taco). This is the best... More

I've been to three Matta's and the new one on Ellsworth and Brown is nothing to write home about. Out here we're starved for good restaurants, we've not been back for a few months. We started going for happy hour, the bartenders started to get pretty annoying, seems like they only had about half the menu of the other locations... More

I love Matta's...honestly, it's not always the cleanest, but it is always busy, which should tell you something. I love their green chile sauce and their pork burritos are amazing. I highly reccomend them for dine in or take out! So happy they have a Queen Creek/Gilbert location now. I just wish the restaurant was bigger!

Stopped by for lunch, typical order at the counter find a table. What elevates this resturant above average is the obvious home cooking. Simple and very good is the theme here. We both ordered green chili burros one pork and one beef. While they were ala carte the flavor was very good and better than we have experienced in chain... More

Marta's is a very good Mexican restaurant. Pork, beef, and chicken dishes are well prepared and well seasoned. I have not tried seafood. Margarita was also good. Portions are large and prices are a real bargain. Chips keep getting refilled and come with two salsas, one mild and one nicely hot.

i liked the small and inexpensive cheese crisp but It wasn't enough for 3 people and we were not given a choice. The chips were too hard and the Red Sauce on my Enchilada was bland. We went early around 4 so the " they were too busy" excuse doesn't fly here. The waitress was attentive but really wasn't into... More

Matta's is an iconic Mesa restaurant. The food is top-notch--some of the best Mexican food you will find. Definitely worth the time to make a stop.
