Correction: We Got the Wrong Bob Armstrong Dip

By Tim Rogers |

In our April issue, as you might have heard, we published a list of “52 Things Every Dallasite Must Do.” One of the things was eat Bob Armstrong dip at Mattito’s Tex-Mex, which does not list the concoction on its menu. Unfortunately, our art and editorial departments had a communications snafu, and to illustrate the dip item, we ran a picture of the Bob Armstrong dip not from Mattito’s but instead from Matt’s Rancho Martinez. Mattito’s, you see, was once affiliated with Matt’s, which originated the Bob Armstrong Dip. But not long after Mattito’s opened, the two organizations parted ways — and not altogether amicably. Estella Martinez, Matt’s widow, politely explained all this to me. She said that she and her staff were delighted when a D Magazine photographer came in to take pictures, but when she saw her dip next to the Mattito’s writeup, her delight turned into something else.

We regret the error.
