One of Phoenix’s most beloved breakfast spots is headed to the west Valley. Matt’s Big Breakfast will open at 7507 West Rose Garden Lane at Arrowhead Ranch in Glendale on Friday, October 15.
Owner Matt Pool opened the original Matt’s Big Breakfast at First and McKinley Streets in 2004, but the restaurant quickly outgrew its digs. It soon moved to its current location at 825 North First Street, and later expanded to North Scottsdale, Biltmore Plaza, and Terminal 4 at Sky Harbor Airport.
The new Glendale location will be the fourth restaurant in the metro area, with a fifth planned to open in early 2022 at 3150 E. Ray Road at the Epicenter development inside Agritopia in Gilbert.
Morning viands at Matt’s Big Breakfast include griddlecakes, waffles, biscuits and gravy, and smashed avocado toast. The Big Papa burrito comes with three eggs, chorizo, roasted Yukon gold potatoes, organic pinto beans, jalapenos, cheddar cheese and ranchero sauce.
Another signature item, the Chop & Chick, is a skillet-seared Iowa pork chop marinated in pesto and served with toast and potatoes. The latter was featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives television show on Food Network.
