We Give Thanks

Posted in News & Events

This is the time of year for giving thanks, and we at Mattito’s have a lot to be thankful for. Here is a short list of some of the things for which we are grateful.

  1. Our customers.

Mattito’s has the best customers anywhere, people who love Tex-Mex and who love coming to one of our locations to eat delicious Tex-Mex meals. Our customers are loyal and appreciate good food. We thank them for their patronage, their trust and their praise.

We are thankful to be named one of the top 10 tequila bars in the United States, having our Sunday brunch named the best in Dallas, to be named as the best Tex-Mex in Dallas, and winning several People’s Choice awards.

  1. Friends and family.

We are thankful for friends and family. Mattito’s has a long and rich family history. Our restaurant was founded more than two generations ago, and has been a family institution every since.

  1. We are thankful for our employees.

You wouldn’t get the great Tex-Mex service without our outstanding employees. Mattito’s has the best chefs and servers anywhere.

  1. We are thankful to be in Dallas, Texas


Dallas is a great Tex-Mex city in a great Tex-Mex state.

  1. And finally, we are thankful for Tex-Mex food!

It’s the reason we do what we do because Tex-Mex is the best food in the world. Nothing can match great Tex-Mex, from the savory fajitas to the saucy enchiladas to the cheesy nachos and the spicy chili.

We are thankful to all those people who made Tex-Mex what it is today. We are thankful for the Tejaños who started the whole tradition – to the chili queens in San Antonio in the 1880s who dished out chili in the city’s plazas. We are thankful to Willie Gebhardt, who began selling his own brand of chili powder around the same time, a tasty mix of ground ancho chilis, cumin, oregano, and black pepper.

We give thanks to Otis Farnsworth, who in 1900 began the tradition of serving refried beans and rice with Tex-Mex dishes. And we are thankful to Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya, who was the first person to serve the dish that bears his name, when he whipped up a plate of corn tortilla chips covered with melted cheese and jalapeno peppers as an appetizer for customers in his restaurant in Piedras Negras, Mexico.

We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day so that our employees may enjoy this day of gratitude with their loved ones. We’re open the day before and the day after Thanksgiving at our usual hours

A Happy Tex Mex Thanksgiving to everyone!
