Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 October 2017 via mobile

We read the reviews and were hungry for BBQ so we thought we'd check this out. Upon arrival we were not greeted or told how their process of ordering went. There were small children throwing balls in the kitchen and running around behind the counter. We ordered the single meat plate. 1 meat and 2 sides, I chose ribs, cole saw and green beans. The ribs had excellent favor but they were luke warm. The beans had a different flavor but were good . After we paid we tried to find a clean place to sit. Not one of the tables in the restaurant were clean! Every one of them had food smeared on them. Some of the workers were visiting with friends/family in the restaurant so they could have spent 10 minutes wiping down a couple of tables. It appeared that the restaurant was a disaster from the lunch crowd but we visited at 4:35p.
Everyone in our group agreed we'd better pray so we don't get sick from the uncleanliness/ room temperature meat at Fat Boys .

The owners have been local for ever! You usually see part of the family working every day. It is a pretty simple establishment that serves good food! I like the chopped beef and slaw best. They are closed on Sunday and Monday.

I liked the set up of the restaurant. Lots of outdoor seating and indoor seating. Nice display of the awards they have won for BBQ.
The Brisket had an excellent flavor and was moist. The chopped beef sandwich tasted different than any chopped beef I've ever had (and I eat a lot of BBQ) but it was delicious! The Ice Tea was fresh and crisp! The sides were average. Corn had a good flavor but was kind of mushy, the turnip greens had good flavor and the beans were a little peppery but good.
I would eat here again! Plus the prices are great for what you get!!!

We go there about once a month and get family packs to go, Get there early in order to get fairly fresh food from the serving counter. They need to keep place a little cleaner, floors are not clean, counters need wiped off etc.

Easy pick up and quick take home meal is usually what I do on the way home from work. A great variety of side dishes and desserts.
