I can cook, I can BBQ, and I think I can do it pretty well. I don't have loads of trophy's, but I can smoke a pretty nice meal up. So, why do I have a 'go to' BBQ joint? What makes a BBQ restaurant worth going to when I can cook and enjoy cooking. Well, it comes down to more than just convenience. It comes down to a place that not only makes great meat, but, that listens to what customers say and changes up the offerings once in a while. Phat Matt's is one such place.
I am not in the habit of reviewing restaurants, I think my choices and tastes are too limited to do that kind of thing accurately. Further, I am too easily swayed by personality to be a good reviewer. However, I really do enjoy Phat Matt's BBQ, not only because they make a very good brisket and ribs; but also because I appreciate that in the recent couple of weeks of the new year, they have put a couple of items on as specials that I and several other had asked for. This week, it is brisket pot pie. And it was excellent.
