Enjoyable Family Meal

We are here with a large group. There's plenty of room to accommodate a group of 20 or so. Ordering at the counter is easy with self-service beverages. I really liked my tater. The brisket was average. I'm used to multiple sauce choices, but there was just one bottle on our table.

Plenty of rib places in the south but this one is tops. I start to eat and I can't stop because they're so good. Now I'm a Fat Boy!

Our group of 6 ate here on a Wednesday for lunch. This restaurant you order at the counter & then seat yourself. Food was good with ample portions. The outside of the building is nothing to look at but the inside is quaint & very clean. They had a 99 on the health rating when we visited. Definitely would recommend... More

Danny knows how to cook BBQ. Never had a bad meal from Fat Boy's. Never left hungry, either. Nestled in next to Autauga Creek in Historic Downtown Prattville, Fat Boy's BBQ Ranch is exactly what a good BBQ place should be, from the laid back atmosphere and real smoked pork, it is done right. Don't leave without trying the home... More

Great local joint for lunch and open on the weekends for dinner. Very unpretentious, just great tasting BBQ and pie! They let us have our dog on the patio. Service was very friendly. You order at the front and they bring the food to the table.

Saw on PBS as one of the barbeque places to eat in Alabama. Several miles off the interstate in downtown Prattville. Everything is claimed to be homemade except the sliced bread and crackers. It was okay but nothing special that I would make a trip back. They do give you alot of meat but it was not as good as... More

We stopped by while traveling through the area to get to go orders of really good pulled pork and beef brisket sandwiches. Wonderful smoky piled high goodness with a nice sauce. I had the opportunity to meet "Fat Boy" who was cooking on the outdoor grill in temperatures exceeding 100 this day with a smile on his face while we... More

Off the beaten path, but worth the trek if you want BBQ that has been cooked in an outside smoker. Very casual setting and friendly service. Worth a try!

IMO the best BBQ in the area. The staff/owners are so friendly. The pulled pork almost melts in your mouth. The menu is limited.
