While on vacation in Arizona, a friend from Phoenix introduced me to Matt’s Big Breakfast. It is an exceptional place to eat. Plan on waiting because it is a popular spot. Once seated, we were treated to exceptional service and fabulously fresh food!

Definitely! It has to be one of their busiest days! Come early or bring something to read or someone to talk to, as You may have to wait depending on your arrival time. It's worth the wait!
