  • 1/4 slab 1/4 chicken and rum beans. Can't go wrong.
  • The mac and cheese is amazing
  • 1/4 ribs + 1/4 chicken + New Brunswick Stew + Macaroni and Cheese = One phenomenal meal. I kicked the plate clean, went back to the register and got pecan pie. A meal never to forget. Ever.
  • Some of the citys most tender ribs are paired with live music every night.
  • This place quite literly is a shack, so if that's not your thing look elsewhere. Order meal in front with woman whith the missing teeth. Maybe best BBQ in Atlanta but that's not saying much.
  • Its call the "Rib Shack" for a reason. The meat falls off the bone like it should with any good bbq. Try the rum baked beans and the mac-n-cheese. Live blues nightly.
  • I'm always skeptical any place with lots of hype but this was the real deal. I wasn't even hungry and went back for a second half slab after a 1/4 combo. Sweet potato pie was awesome!
  • Pulled pork BBQ sandwich is awesome, but you may want to get two... they are kinda small.
  • The Combo (1/4 ribs, 1/4 chicken) is a good choice for takeout. But make sure you get plenty of napkins!
  • Get the mac-n-cheese!
  • The ribs melt in your mouth, the sauce is perfect, and the rum baked beans are stupid!!!
  • If you want world renowned BBQ, Fat Matt's is the way to go.
  • best ribs I`ve ever eaten!!!
  • Check out Fat Matts Rib Shack as seen on The Layover
  • One of the best rib places i ever been to. Ribs are super "fall off the bone" with a strong charcoal/bbq flavor, and the sauce is spicy, sweet and vinegary. Good prices as well
  • Bar none..the best bbq in all of Atlanta. Those ribs are art!!!!! Rum baked beans are heaven.
  • If you're in Atlanta, go here. Get ribs and some sides and sit back to take in the blues.
  • Stop by for some down home cooking and nightly live blues from Atlanta's finest musicians!
  • Thoroughly satisfied with the BBQ and the Live Music
  • Has it all. Atmosphere, Food, Location, Music, Swag. Comfortable and ribs are by far the best in ATL.
