We looked for a place to eat ribs and for sure we found some... Fat boy is a BBQ joint with massive 24h smoker. The manue is simple and good: pig, chicken or beef. Now you just need to choose which part and how much. You can also mix. The BBQ is the dry rub kind with lot's of flavore... More

The salad bar looked stale. I could not find any vegitarian friendly dishes. Even my omnivore sister wanted to leave without ordering.

Hubby and I stopped in Wall, S.D., on our way to Mount Rushmore. The plan was to visit the huge, famous drug store in Wall, but as we drove through the main drag there, I told him there weren't no way I was getting out and walking around that madhouse. Not my cup o'tea for the day ... so ...... More

Wow, this was possibly the worst restaurant we have ever eaten at. There was 1 cook and 2 waitresses, one of whom was really a hairdresser helping out. I noticed smoke when I first came in and assumed it was from the bbq. Later realized it was old, burned, oil. The catfish was cooked in the really old oil. The... More

We had a nice experience, good food and good service. I recommend the pulled pork, but the salads looked good too!

We thought the place was closed, but saw the lights on. Was very surprised to have a great dinner with a very attentive server. There was only one other person eating there. Since dining in Wall is fairly limited, we went back for breakfast and enjoyed a perfectly cooked meal. A different server, but again, very attentive. What the heck,... More

We stopped here on our way back from the Badlands. From outside it smelled so good. Once we got inside it was empty. There were no other customers. That should have made us run the other direction, but we stayed. The waiter was very nice, but not great with customer service. The food was not great by any means. I... More

I have to say this is the worse restaurant I have tried in several years. The wait staff was sub par. The brisket was okay. The catfish was a Mrs Paul's crunchy filet. The prices were outrageous. We ordered a baked potato with the fish and mashed potato with the roast beef. When the order came no potatoes. The reason?... More

The BBQ needed to be cooked a little bit longer. And, my partner believes the sauce should all ways be on ribs before it going to the customer's tabel. The building needed to have central air it was extremely warm. Other than that the food was good
