I came with a friend and I would say she went more to this restaurant's strength, a big pile of pork. I had the half chicken, which other than being smoked to death, had no seasoning. It was cooked but it was hard to get...More

Thank you for your review and I am sorry you didn't enjoy the Chicken and Cole Slaw. You are correct on the Slaw, we use a dressing with Vinegar and mayo and a few other ingredients and keep it pretty plain. We also use that...More

Big Fatty's has close to the best BBQ I have ever had. Everything was tender, tasty, and plentiful. The beer selection features mostly the best of Vermont brews, with a few from other states. We arrived too late to have the salad bar, which was...More

Wow, this was so much better than I was expecting. The ribs are delicious, huge, and tender. They have sweet potato fries. My wife's pulled pork was also excellent and the slaw was great too. I can't wait for the leftovers tomorrow.

We went on a Saturday night when they had live music and the place was very busy and loud both with music and lots of conversation. Being a senior, it might have been better if we were there for lunch as we felt kind of...More

You can't go wrong here. It seems everything on the menu is great and the hot wings had the best flavored heat. If you like the spice and taste you will always want to return.
