Interesting that this website classifies Matthews as "cheap eats." It's difficult to get a full meal, even drinking water for less than $11-$13, lunch or dinner. Add a drink and it's a couple of bucks more. But, it's hard to beat Matthews for home cooked,...More

Always good home cooking in my belly. One of my favorites since I was a child! The grilled chicken fell off the bone and you can't go wrong with mashed potatoes and green beans. Makes my mouth water just talking about it!

This is like a throwback to pre national and regional chains began to dominate the restaurant business. It's the quintessential cafeteria - not fancy but good food.
