Matt's Place Drive-In in Butte, Montana was one of the first drive-in restaurant in Montana. Matt's Place was a straightforward conversion of a house to serve customers in cars.
Established in 1930, its chief concession to the automobile is a tall curb to keep parking cars from hitting the building and a menu on the outside of the building, advertising curb service.
The interior retains its 1936 counter and 1950s lighting fixtures.
