Down to the bone good !!!!!!

As a band we play in many rib joints. Fat Matt’s has taken

first in the rib department. Love the staff, they treat everyone as family. Good selection of beers and you can enjoy the blues played every night. The prices are very reasonable and it is a tip based joint, so tip the band and staff and enjoy.

Fat Matt's = good ribs

We seem to be circling Atlanta for food kind of like my own ancestors once “foraged” for food (Cherokee/Choctaw) – constantly on the go! Our buds took us to this little place, the parking wasn’t great and didn’t look like much from the outside, but open the door and the pleasant smell pulls you in! I heard it described as a BBQ and Blues place – occasionally live music. Missed that, but it might be worth it to go back. It’s small – and super casual – but the food is quite good and nice folks! They also have seating outside.


our friends had the ribs and side of potato salad and beans – they enjoyed!

Combo Ribs/chicken

Husband had the combo and said it was real good (not tooooo saucy)

Pork Sandwich

This was good and tender, great flavor – the sides were too.


I think this place is awesome. They need to...

I think this place is awesome. They need to bring it here to NY.

Best Taste in Town

Regardless of how it is cooked or prepared or whatever, the taste is the test and Fat Matt’s passes with an A++. I can’t remember ever having anything so good.
The price was a shock…only a few bucks.
There was a line at lunch time and the place isn’t huge. Order at the counter and pay. The food is brought to you. The sweet tea is delicious too.
While it is a small place inside, they seem to have room for everyone. Parking is enough though barely.
Before you go, check out their web site and menu.


Delicious although just enough, so, order a dessert.
