If you are looking for gourmet dining in plush surroundings, this place is not for you. If you are after good basic food, friendly service, and basic surroundings then head on over. I've been to Mat-su Family Restaurant numerous times and I've never been disappointed....More

I have a real problem when I find hair in my food. It makes me lose my appetite! There are plenty of other places in the Valley to eat.

If your version of home cooking is out of a box from Sam's Club, then this is the place for you. The food was bland, and I think they cater to the older generation who live in the area.
