This was my first experience with Fat BBQ Shack and any time I am in town, it definitely won't be my last. I ordered a rack of ribs, 3 lbs of pulled brisket, beans, potato salad and cole slaw. It was absolutely awesome. It came...More

I've eaten BBQ at some of the best in the world, but none is any better and most not as good as the FAT BBQ SHACK. The brisket is the best I've ever had. Everything is homemade from the sauce to the sides. Don't pass...More

I've had the brisket and ribs here and have not been disappointed. Service is hit and miss, but they are friendly and try to please. Don't get it any hurry as they are a bit on the slow side. The wait is worth it though....More

The brisket is unsurpassed, the rib tips are to die for! The sides are prepared perfectly. My only complaint is that there is too much food! We enjoyed it for days.

Overall the experience here was good but the wait was a little long. I have a lot of BBQ where I come from and this BBQ was a bit sweeter than I care for normally. But it was a good spot to bring a client.
