Amazing bbq and amazing price! The pulled pork sandwich is delicious and comes with chips. I always order a side of either baked beans or potato salad and both are tasty. It ca...

If you know nothing about barbecue, you might think Fat Matt's is good. Sure, it's hip, swanky, and the ""in"" place, but the food is ok at best. You want real barbecue you need t...

Fat Matt's 4/15/2006

Fat Matt's is absolutely my favorite barbecue place ever, and I live in Alabama! I love my barbecue to be a hole-in-the-wall place and Fat Matt's definitely looks the part. It's always super crowded during lunch hours because all the Atlanta workers know where the good food is. They have great barbecue chicken, ribs and pork and cold beer. You can buy their fantastic sauce in bottles to take home too. more

Good food and Great Music 3/30/2006

One of the fun and flavorful places to hit when you are in Atlanta is Fat Matt's Rib Shack...a small 'hole-in-the-wall' joint with smoking BBQ and even tastier tunes. Basically, you order your food (BBQ chicken, ribs, and pork with your standard array of sides), beer, and then grab a seat. A live (generally local) blues band plays each night, providing a nice groove to chow down to. The place is strictly SRO, and as once the band heats up, and can be hard to find a place to sit. So get there early, grab a seat and some great ribs, and enjoy! more

Fat Matt's 2/16/2006

Maybe Fat Matt is Santa. This is the only guy (besides "The Bearded One") who knows if I've been naughty or nice. During the day, phenomenal ribs, chicken, pulled pork sandwiches and sides. The service is great and the vibe is great for a date, a family, or just a quick lunch break. During the night -- take out's a breeze -- and the beer and blues are great. The beer is good but you need to pace yourself; there is only one men's bathroom (and one ladies I believe). The food, the music and a great Atlanta night. We used to say that a 70 degree Feb.day was a "recruiting day" for people from the North. Any warm day (or night) at Fat Matt's is a recruiting day. more

Greasy Spoon to say the least 12/29/2005

I found the ribs that everyone raves about to mostly be a greasy mess, well I know that's what ribs are, but these even had a greasy taste. A staple to some Atlantian's, but I think I'll pass on another visit. My friends say they have good music on some nights of the week, but I've never been on one of those nights. more

    This rib joint is good, noisy honky-tonk fun courtesy of long communal tables and a decent stable of local blues acts. Inside, a Mount Rushmore-esque blues legends mural...
