I am an infrequent reviewer so the Fat BBQ Shack has greatly impressed me as my first experience of BBQ food US style. As an English visitor I read a great review on the Fat BBQ Shack in the local Omaha magazine and thought it was worth a trip out from Old Market as we'd failed to find anything out of the ordinary in the eateries there. The Fat BBQ Shack renewed my faith in US cuisine ! I had the 3 Meat Dinner with the brisket,ribs and pulled pork- all excellent.My husband, a man of few words! thought the Carolina Sandwich was delicious and planned to go back the next night. The meal itself was enough but just to top it off the homemade cherry pie with cream cheese was truly indulgent. Thanks Fat BBQ Shack a real foodie gem,

Was there in July 2016 the sit down area had been enlarged and their business was doing good. However being accustomed to Memphis and KC bbq the flavor was bland. Even the hot sauce was bland. The baked beans were o'k the cold slaw good. My partner had the catfish and said it was good.

Had lunch today at Fat Shack. Got the Smokin' Gun sandwich. Smoked Brisket and smoked sausage sandwich. FANTASTIC. Great smoke ring on the brisket and the sausage brought addl smokiness and juiciness to the sandwich. Super good BBQ.

These folks

slow smoke for at least 24 hours which creates a moist ,tasty
BBQ The ribs are moist with just enough resistance to provide a good chew. The brisket was also moist and flavorful. It is a small place and jammed with BBQ devotees

Visited Fat BBQ on the advice of family. Had the burnt ends with 2 sides....fries and slaw with a portion of corn bread. Not much to say besides YUM!!

Good sized portions and well priced.

Only negative is no beer. What's bbq without beer.
