Fat Matt's Rib Shack (Atlanta, GA)

1811 Piedmont Ave NE, Atlanta, GA, T: 404-607-1622

Fat Matt's Rib Shack is a blues and bbq institution in Atlanta. Whenever you swing by, there will be a highly multicultural line waiting. Every night there will be a live band; and if they are not playing, some great blues will come from the speakers in- and outside.

The menu is quite limited, but trust me, you don't need anything else than they offer. I ordered a 1/2 slab of ribs ($9.75), a chopped pork sandwich (with chips) ($3.95), a side of coleslaw ($1.20), and lemonade ($1.25). The ribs are simply amazing; so juicy, you can suck them of the bone. The pulled pork sandwich is incredibly tender, juicy and tasty; the best I ever had. Finally, the coleslaw and lemonade are very tasty too, if not truly remarkable.

VERDICT: 96/100
What else can I say than, if you are ever in a 100 mile radius of Atlanta, GO TO FAT MATT'S!!! Do NOT leave without having eaten the ribs and chopped pork sandwich... the rest is up to you!
