Matta's at Riverview breaks ground tomorrow

The new Matta's at Mesa Riverview breaks ground tomorrow the 13th at 9am. Over at their blog, Got Matta's?, they say that the first 100 people who show up at the ground breaking will get a special gift. Will it be one of their new head turning t-shirts?

The return of Matta's after closing their doors in downtown is in both the Republic and the Tribune as part of the promotion of the groundbreaking. We have been assured that the Republic's version of the article is wrong and the location will be able to seat more than 40 people.

Many will also be excited to know that some of the original fixtures and other unique pieces from the original Matta's will be part of the decorations in the new location. We were, however, a little less than enthused at the idea that the employees with 25 plus years of experience would be asked to return to the new location. The idea is a nice one, but we have had more than our fair share of cranky, old waitresses in our time and think it might be time to give a few young smiling faces a chance.

Either way, it's exciting news for Mesa and for Riverview's entertainment district.

I have not been that big of a fan of their food the past few years. I love the tradition in downtown, and now that is gone most likely, I will go to other joints in downtown that are better.
