Fat Matt's is simply THE BEST place in the Atlanta area to go for ribs and barbecue chicken! The rustic dining room adds to the feeling that you're eating with friends. The chicken is tender and juicy, while the ribs fall right off the bone! We always enjoy Fat Matt's Rib Shack!

my friend raved about the food here so off we went! we arrived around 830pm on a saturday night in April and only had to wait 15 min in line. as i stood there waiting to order, i was amazed at the menu prices. half chicken for under $6. half rack of ribs for just under $7. how do they make money? i'd say on volume of customers and taste. the chicken was a little dry which was disappointing but my friends ribs melted in my mouth. yes the sides are small but they aren't so expensive that it feels like you are being cheated.

the band was playing inside and it was really loud in there. if you want to talk to anyone, sit outside.

all in all, it was fun and filling!

tiny portion sizes on the sides - baked beans, cole slaw, etc. Otherwise, the ribs, etc., are YUMMMMMMILY!! And the hole-in-the-wall atmosphere is FANTASTIC!!!!! Go early and plan on taking your time - and take cash and, especially, handy wipes to help rid you of your sticky fingers ;-)

All the locals told us to go... So we did! The long line out the door was a clear indicator that we were in the right spot. It is easy, simple BBQ. Ribs, pulled pork and more ribs. Greens, Mac n cheese, chips. Inside tables with live music sometimes, outside tables if you want to get some sunshine. Would I go back? Yes. Should you go? Yes,
