Welcome to Front & Center, a series highlighting front of the house professionals in Atlanta restaurants. Right now, blogger Shelbi Saine writes about Matt Coggin, managing partner at DBA Barbecue:
"Let me get ya a drink!" - the familiar first words I hear from my friend and D.B.A Barbecue's managing partner Matt Coggin each time I enter. If you've ever met Matt, you know that he's a jack of all trades - any given night you might think he's the head bartender, or a server, or even just that awesome guy sitting at the bar buying everyone a round of Whynatte shots. Regardless of where you find him, Matt will eventually become someone you call a friend. Matt gives D.B.A Barbecue that small town feel despite being located just moments away from Peachtree Street in the heart of Atlanta. So next time you decide to stop by D.B.A. Barbecue for some smokehouse ribs, take a seat at the bar and get to know Matt. You may have just found yourself a new favorite watering hole.
