Mattito's has opened on the edge of Lake Highlands, across from Medical City

With the weather finally cooling, now is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoor patio at the newly opened Mattito’s Tex Mex Cafe. Mattito’s is located in the old Black-Eyed Pea on Forest Lane just west of Central Expressway. And if it gets too cool, the outdoor fireplace will make it cozy.

I sampled the fajitas, sizzling and flavorful, though I preferred the chicken to the beef, which came in medallions instead of strips. I also liked the breakfast tacos, served all day during the week and at their Sunday Brunch, beginning at 10 am.

My hands-down favorite wasn’t even on the menu. It was the Bob Armstrong Queso (just order the “Bob’s” and your waiter will know you’re an “insider”). Bob’s is a tasty creation of creamy queso encasing dollops of quacamole, sour cream and ground beef. You can even enjoy it in their bar while watching football on the big-screen TVs. Delicious.
