Matt’s El Rancho dates back all the way to 1952 when its original location opened on East 1st Street. This family-owned and operated establishment is home to the beloved Bob Armstrong Dip, which is a reference to former Texas Land Commissioner Bob Armstrong who often visited the restaurant. The story goes that Armstrong came in one day, asked for something off the menu to satisfy his hunger and the kitchen whipped up a combination of their chile con queso, taco meat and guacamole. The rest is history! Let’s all give thanks to Bob Armstrong for inspiring the creation of this delicious dip.
