FAT MATT'S RIB SHACK
My wife & I went to Atlanta for our son's college graduation last weekend. One of his friends hosted a BBQ, and served excellent barbecue from FAT MATT'S. I've wanted to try their BBQ for a long time; I rode shotgun for the pickup.
We picked up:
10 racks of ribs
10-lbs. of chopped pork
rolls, bread & sauce
The verdict: GREAT!
Ribs are (almost) as good as my all-time favorite, FLINT'S in Oakland, CA.
I'm not a big fan of chopped 'cue, but this was terrific. Just juicy enough, great flavor, texture- sauce could have had more kick, but I'm sure that's available.
Baked beans- well, they were baked beans. Anyway, I'd rather eat more ribs. So I did.
Now, if it had been my party, I would have ordered some chicken and sweet potato pies, too. Maybe next time.
The kicker- the bill came to what a party of 5 or 6 would pay for "BBQ" anywhere in NYC.
