Matt's El Rancho

We've only lived here for seven months, but right off the bat, people started recommending Matt's El Rancho. We've been several times and are usually satisfied but not blown away. The Bob Armstrong dip everyone raves over is decent but not amazing, but I did find the pecan-smoked brisket flautas to be a real treat. My husband's beef fajitas were great, if a little too heavy on the onions and peppers. A margarita and a mojito were refreshing and delicious. The service was friendly and attentive, even though we didn't appreciate the balloon-animal guy.

I've noticed some divided opinions on chowhound, and I'm curious why some seem to regard it as an institution while others dismiss it. Thanks for your perspectives.
