Matt's El Rancho #1 opened in 1952 at 302 E. 1st. The original menu consisted only of blue plate specials such as chicken fried steak. But the occasional enchilada plate daily special drew demands for more Tex-MexAfter 34 years, El Rancho #1 and #2 had become so popular. The beautiful new building that was built in 1986 features three dining rooms, a patio, a large bar area, and even a tortilleria. Even though the first two El Ranchos were closed when the new restaurant opened, the family still held on to their decades-long commitment to fresh and delicious food.
