Inspired by the kindness in our community we started Daddy Matty’s BBQ with a purpose: Feed our Community and help our Neighbors. Our Motto “Everybody Eats” captures our commitment to sharing. In New Jersey a quarter of our neighbors must choose between food and other essential costs. 1 in 7 struggle with hunger, a third of which are children. These statistics are heartbreaking but more importantly, they are our motivation. Every purchase you make helps to put a meal on your neighbor’s plate. Since 2014 we’ve provided thousands of meals through our partnership with the Morris County Interfaith Food Pantry and we will continue to find ways to get food to our neighbors who need it most!

We had a great time celebrating my birthday at Daddy Matty’s. Food was fantastic and so was the owner. Highly recommend and looking forward to going back.

The other reviews are spot on. We went with the whole family the night before Thanksgiving. The food was amazing and Matty gave us a tour of the place. The sides are huge and so are the entrees. We will definitely be back.

A yes, but with hesitation. I'm feeling like we were there on a bad night, early in the week. The brisket was very dry, nice flavor tho, but exceptionally dry. Their 'simple' Mac&Cheese was way too big a portion and boring....my husbands pulled pork taco's uninspiring to him tho I didn't try them. The green chili cornbread we ordered had not one fleck of green chili...so.... I'm hoping that if we stop by again we will find a moister brisket and a more interesting mac & cheese. As an accomplished home cook who has never smoked a brisket but has indulged many times this piece of meat needs work....and I wish I could stop by and show them how to make 'simple' mac & cheese..smaller pasta to start and a nice sharp cheddar!!!

Really enjoyed our visit. Food was great. The live music and games on tables makes the time pass quickly while you wait for your food. Look forward to coming back.

A great place. The food was fabulous. My son and husband got the meat platter and not only was every meat wonderful they were both had a hard time finishing it due to the portion size. I got the Montreal brisket sandwich. The brisket was great and the combination was so tasty. Matty came over and introduced himself and spent some time talking to us. What an incredibly friendly, hospitable man. We can’t wait to come back next time we are in Madison.

Best smoked BBQ meats in the area! Get the sampler platter! Crazy good food and add some of their own BBQ sauce! Hidden gem!

They couldn’t be nicer... Matty is super passionate and it’s all a labor of love for him. Ask for the tour out back

Ribs, brisket and pulled pork were awesome! Interesting twist on Chile rellenos was a delicious surprise. The stuffed chili’s were wrapped in wonton skins and then fried and served with Chile Verde as a dipping sauce. It was a huge hit at our table.
We will definitely return

I am sorry to say this probably was the worst BBQ I ever had in. A restaurant. I’m not sure if this was just a bad day or not. It seemed like the meat was microwaved.

A small little local place off the beaten path with the best BBQ I've had in a long time. Had the combo platter- all were superb. Great smoke ring on perfectly dry rubbed meats. And they make the best spicy BBQ sauce that comes on the side. It's a great compliment to perfectly smoked moist meats. BBQ done right. Delicious corn bread, and really good mac n cheese. Go visit Matty soon and often

Great food with moderate pricing and above all great service by Matt!! The place has a section for children to play and draw which is a big plus if you are going with your family. For the sides/appetizers the jalapeño poppers and the BBQ chips are great! I will definitely be back to this hidden BBQ place in Madison

Best BBQ place I've been to in the Metropolitan area. I'm no connoisseur but eyes were opened to the joy of BBQ on a visit to Dallas last year. This place is on par in quality. The place is a little less ritzy then the neighboring restaurants in town but they spent their time where it counts. The staff is friendly. The liquor store is right across the street and BBQ is handcrafted.

Definitely the best place around for a half rack and fresh corn bread. Everything is made with love and care on premises. Top off your ribs with their homemade small batch sauce and finish off with warm bread putting swimming in bourbon creme anglais. Great for a casual family meal or evening out with friends.

HIGHLY recommend!! We drove 30 mins for this BBQ at the recommendation of a friend and OMG it exceeded our high expectations. Delicious without feeling unnecessarily heavy as BBQ often does. We got the burrito, the platter of all three meats, mac and cheese, coleslaw, and cornbread and all of it was amazing. Huge portions, great value. Also had the pleasure of interacting with “Daddy Matty” himself who showed us the grills smoking the meat out back. They have an amazing event space outside as well for warmer weather. Definitely will be returning.

We had the brisket and pulled pork, baked beans, coleslaw and Green Chili Cornbread. Pork, beans and slaw were great, brisket was overcooked. We look forward to giving the brisket another try and trying other items on the menu.

Daddy Matty's is great for adults and kids alike. Can't go wrong with anything smoked or BBQ on this menu. Everything made fresh every day. Don't be afraid to try the chiles rellenos and drown them in the pork green chili. YUM. Super friendly vibe.
