We had lunch here today and it was outstanding. We both had the pulled pork sandwiches with a side of Brunswick stew ($1.99 upcharge). The pork was very tasty and the stew outstanding. The prices are very reasonable and our server was excellent.

We will definitely be eating here again in the future.

Fat Buddies' beef brisket dinner and bbq chicken dinner are must-haves for us at least once during our yearly visit to Franklin.

We've picked up take-out a few times from Fat Buddies. We can highly recommend the pulled pork sandwich. The other items/sides are good but not outstanding. Check your bag to make sure you get all the items needed such as sauce, napkins. Sometimes these items are missing.

Our family did enjoy the BBQ. Portions sizes were pretty large as we had leftovers to take home.
We went at a fairly busy time for lunch on a Saturday. We waited about 30 minutes to be seated and that was fine. However, waiting another 10 minutes after being seated to have our drink order taken was not expected. After ordering our food, it took at least 20 more minutes for the food to arrive at the table.
Although the BBQ was good, I don't think I go again unless I wasn't hungry and had plenty of time to spare.

Having never experienced Carolina Bar-B-Que, I was excited to see what the hype was all about. When we arrived we had to wait about 10 minutes as this place is always busy. The entire staff was friendly and attentive. I ordered the half rack of baby back ribs which were to die for. Smokey flavor, great sauce, fall off the bone. HIghly recommend.
