Fat Matt’s Rib Shack has been serving award-winning ribs since 1990. Voted one of Atlanta’s best BBQ spots, they complement their delicious food with live blues performances that make dining there that much better. Notable dishes include their Brunswick, which is known for tasting “just like home,” the pork sandwich, which is BBQ-slathered and slow roasted to perfection, and of course, their ribs, which are so well-cooked, the meat slides right of the bones. The baked beans, potato salad, and coleslaw are some of the best sides you’ll find anywhere in town. With its filling portions and outstanding blues performances, dining at Fat Matt’s fills up not just the stomach, but the soul as well.

In huge, bold red letters, a sign on the street-facing side of Miss Betty?s House of Ribs proclaims ?BBQ.? It?s an old-fashioned invitation to sample some of the rib-shack recipes that rightfully hold a beloved position in the pantheon of southern cuisine. Inside, pit-masters slow roast hefty slabs of ribs and slather whole and half chickens in the restaurant?s signature sauce. The grills are kept in a screened-in porch so passersby can smell the flavorful smoke and hear chefs shout when the meat gets too delicious.
