Matt's Big Breakfast Adds Tempe Location

Many of us at Arizona Highways love bacon, so it should come as no surprise that we love Matt's Big Breakfast, which has grown from humble beginnings in downtown Phoenix to become one of the hottest breakfast joints in town. The bacon there is great, and so is everything else on the menu.

From its initial restaurant downtown, Matt's has expanded to locations in the Biltmore area and at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. And now, Matt's is making its first foray out of Phoenix, setting up shop in Tempe along the shore of Tempe Town Lake.

The new location, at 400 E. Rio Salado Parkway, is in the new Marina Heights development north of Arizona State University. Like the other (non-airport) locations, it's open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

According to a release from the Tempe Tourism Office, the new spot is much bigger than the downtown location, but the menu is the same: fluffy pancakes, omelets, hash browns and savory thick-cut bacon. For lunch, Matt's also offers burgers, BLTs, chili and other options.

Matt's Big Breakfast has been featured in Arizona Highways, and its recipes appear in Arizona's Best Recipes, our cookbook featuring selections from some of the best restaurants in Arizona.
