Servers are polite, but ribs were so so. Ribs are brought to you plain, you squirt on the table sauce as you like.

Worst biscuits and gravy I have EVER had....tasted like canned gravy. Also ordered fried pickles that were frozen pre-breaded. Tasted ok but would expect hand breaded from a small mom and pop place such as this. Had a burger which was the worstbI have ever had. Zero seasoning at all bun not toasted. Water tasted like it was from a... More

I work near this restaurant but for some reason I'd never stopped in before yesterday. I'll definitely be returning! I had the catfish lunch and the fish was amazing. At first I was afraid from the color that it would be too done but it was perfect - light and flavorful. I had it with fries and green beans. The... More

Real BBQ. Ribs are very tasty, even without sauce. Meaty and not greasy. Baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon butter are memorable. Baked beans very flavorful. Staff is delightful.

When I first enjoyed Fat boys 36 years ago I remember picking from the kids menu due to the big portions .. My kids pointed out I can now order from the seniors menu as an over 50! Starting with the varied salad bowl we shared as a family a feast for 2 with an extra 1lb of ribs All... More

My husband and I ate there last month on a trip to Orlando/Kissimmee to visit family. We had been there before for their great breakfast, but this time tried it for dinner. We loved it! Great portions, excellent chicken and beef, and such nice hospitable service. We always try to stop in for a meal on each trip down. Unfortunately,... More

We read a few reports on trip advisor to find a local bbq that wasn't part of a big chain. Right from the get go you can see the place is all about the food. The food was fantastic, well prepared and presented. I never thought I would eat food that would leave me speechless so if you want a... More

We wanted to go where the locals go so we gave this place a try.. I am so glad we did.. A huge platter of bbq'd ribs, chicken, beef, ham, coleslaw, fries, baked potato, beans, corn on the cob, garlic bread was $23 which was enough for the two of us.. Definitely give it a try. The decor is not... More
