We love going to Matthews. It’s down home cooking like mom used to cook. Great foods to choose from. Always has fried chicken. Each day has a special menu. It’s still here after years of great service!

Stopped here for lunch and loved it. It’s a great cafeteria style meat and 3. A little expensive but the portions are huge and the food is delicious. Definitely worth checking out. Added bonus, it’s in adorable downtown Tucker.

I grew up in Tucker, and love this place. I don't live close enough to be a regular visitor anymore, but today's lunch was as good as always. If you like southern food, this is your place!!

Good classic country cooking is what to expect from Mathews. I eat lunch here regularly, every day of the week has different dishes from bbq ribs to fried catfish and everything in between. Great vegetable choices. Looks to spend between $8-$10 a person though. Breakfast...More
