Our story begins in a small town
Port Arthur, Texas
Hattie Marie's has its origins in the southeast Texas town of Port Arthur. She grew up watching her father, who was a cook on a merchant sea vessel, entertain and fellowship through cooking. She was a natural in the kitchen and soon followed suit. Hattie Marie decided to bring her culinary talents to the masses and opened her bakery/catering service Pie Face Bakery in the late 80's. Word soon spread about the delectable dishes being prepared there and her business took off. She was forced to close her doors due to health complications, but many of her recipes and her cooking style live on through her children.
Her son, Willie, moved to Atlanta in 1991. As his mother did in the 80's and 90's, and his grandfather before her, Willie has embraced the family tradition while paying homage to his mother. Hattie Marie's BBQ intends to bring the flavor and essence of SouthEast Texas cooking to Georgia. Hattie has since moved on, but you can still get a taste of everything she embodied at Hattie Marie's! We hope you love it!
SLOW AND Low! Perfection takes time
Unlike other "barbecue joints" we smoke all of our meats in- house daily. We never ever transport cooked meat from other facilities to our restaurant. The question we get the most often is, “Why do you always sell out of Barbecue?”. The answer: To ensure that we have the freshest and best barbecue anywhere around! We are HUGE fans of barbecue and have frequented many of the popular spots in Atlanta. One thing we noticed was that freshness was not a huge concern with many of the establishments. We found that meat was being “smoked” in mass quantity to be sold and reheated over a period of time. Reheating Barbecue??? That’s an absolute NO NO in our book. It takes a lot of hours and patience to make truly great Barbecue. When you eat at Hattie Marie's, you’re only going to get the freshest and best food available and, when it’s gone, it’s gone! As the business grows and the demand swells, we’ll keep making the necessary adjustments to get a little further into the day before it’s all gone. After all, there are an awful lot of people that haven’t discovered us yet. We want to be Atlanta's favorite Barbecue joint!!
