This is an Atlanta staple. If you're BBQ fan, you MUST hit this spot up! There is always a line, but it's well worth the wait. A rack of ribs, mac and cheese with collard greens -- and you've got yourself a southern meal!
Famous Atlanta BBQ tradition...but food didn't match the expectations. I wish they had a broader menu...it really is all about ribs here. I felt like I was working to finish my meal rather than enjoying it.
A great place for ribs and pulled pork sandwiches. Their simple approach and good prices people coming back - oh, that and the great blues music. Every once in a while, the ribs aren't quite up to snuff but don't let that stop you from coming back.
Best dry rub ribs in the city!! Mix that with delicious collard greens, sweet tea and live blues and you can't beat it! The place is small and there is always a line, but it is well worth the wait!
Fat Matt's is my favorite place for ribs in all of Atlanta! The menu is simple and the place is small but you won't regret going. I have been several times and a couple of them there has been live music playing. That was a bit loud if you sit inside but perfect if you are sitting outside.
First, let me say that the word "Shack" is actually generous in describing this place. I don't think the place has been painted in decades, and the ceiling looks as if it will go at any minute. But even with all that said there still is no better place for BBQ in Atlanta. The ribs are succulent and the beans have the perfect combination of sweetness and kick. Add a pitcher of beer and you think you had died and went to heaven. Also, be prepared to meet and talk to people. The place has has about 10 tables inside (there are a few more outside)that are perfect for family-style eating. There is a blues band nightly.
