Good northern barbecue in a fun casual environment. Sometimes there is live music and there is always lots of beer on tap. Food is generously portioned, standard barbecue fare. Fun place to go for a quick casual meal.

The mac and cheese is excellent. The fried pickles were a little disappointing; they used to be spears, so there was some actual pickle in among the breading, but they switched to slices, which aren't quite as nice.

Stopped in on the advice of friends the significant other said the mac and cheese was to die for we got the big hunk of brisket which was nice and juicy the cole slaw was very good and potato wedge french fry looking things were also very good.

Food was decent. I ordered a pulled chicken sandwich. It was not pulled in my opinion as it was chunks of chicken. Tasted good but not what I expected

Stopped in for dinner on the way to Killington Mountain for a family ski trip. Food was awesome! Ribs, pulled chicken and wings were the best!

Been here a few times. Always impressed. Good food - kids had chicken tenders, Mac and cheese and pulled pork. Pulled pork, ribs, burnt ends are awesome. Cornbread ok. Decent slaw and beans. Salad bar - live music often. Impressive beer selection. Crowded but spaces open up fast

Went here off TripAdvisor reviews (visiting from UK). Had the fatty platter to share which was lovely. Fantastic pulled beef and brisket, and the mac'n'cheese was a treat. Portion sizes was plentiful

I've only been to Big Fatty's for lunch so far, but I can attest to the quality of their barbecue, as well as the good value of their extensive salad bar for lunch. They also have a great variety of local VT/NH craft beers on tap, which they rotate on a regular basis. Out of the same restaurant facility, they... More

Being from the South, the wife and I were a little skeptical of trying BBQ in Vermont. When we pulled in the parking lot was full, always a good sign.
