Matt's Place


  • Family Restaurant
Opened in 1930, Matt's Place is Montana's oldest drive-in restaurant, featuring beautiful old murals of the mountains on the wall, a short curved counter and an ancient, bright red, waist high Coke machine - the kind in which the green glass bottles tinkle when you pry open the top to fetch one. The soda fountain behind the counter is fully equipped: six wands for blending milk shakes, dispensers for syrup, and three tall seltzer spouts; the menu features a root beer float, ice cream sodas, malted milks, and nut sundaes, plus 'hot Silex coffee.' To eat, there is the Montana classic, a pork chop sandwich, and all sorts of hamburgers, including a Wimpy special (two patties on one bun), a hamburger with an egg on top, and a nutburger with ground peanuts mixed with mayonnaise and piled onto the meat.
