Fat Matt’s Rib Shack

1811 Piedmont Ave. NE Atlanta, GA 30324 404.607.1622

Fat Matt’s may be a hole-in-the-wall, but it is a dominant player in Atlanta’s barbecue scene. You’ll be elbow-to-elbow with the other patrons cramming the place for their perfectly sauced ribs. The sauce is not over-applied, thick, sweet and smokey. The meat falls off the bone. They have the standard array of sides, but the rum baked beans are recommeneded.

Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q

1238 Dekalb Ave Atlanta, GA 30307 404.577.4030

Loosen your belt before you sit down at Fox Brothers Bar-B-Q. Although their roots are in Texas-style ‘cue, but they’ve integrated other southern influences into their cooking. Pulled pork, brisket, chicken and baby back ribs are the stars of the show. They’ve acheived a remarkable balance between rub and sauce flavoring for their meat. It’s no wonder so many Atlantans say it’s their favorite in town.
