Looking for good BBQ found a friend instead.

In the Alabama Vacation Guide we read that their beef brisket was worth going out of your way for. We did drive the extra way but it wasn't worth the trouble. The brisket was sliced not pulled so the fat was not blended through the meat and it didn't have that smokey flavor that I'd anticipated... read more

Stopped by for lunch. We ordered a two meat lunch plate and the loaded potato. Ok, as others have said, the potato is huge but it was really undercooked...the brisket was excellent, unfortunately there wasn't much of it on the potato. The butter was country crock margarine in individual containers. The sausage was good, the potato salad was so-so. I... More

We were traveling on a long driving trip, and had a night stay in Prattville. After 12 hours on the road everyone was hungry and cranky. The family wanted barbeque so we pulled up Tripadvisor and found this place. It is a bit tricky to find (right off a main road) but well worth it. Everyone ordered something different and... More

We were in town visiting some of the parks and since it was Memorial Weekend I had looked to see if there were any BBQ Restaurants in the area - I spotted Fat Boys on the list and looked it up and put it in the back of mind in case we didn't find another location where we wanted to... More

The best thing about Fat Boy's are the sides - all made from scratch and very flavorful. We had french fries, coleslaw, baked beans and the surprising hearty and smoky camp stew. The fried pies and peach cobbler are also excellent. Both couples in our party had the sampler platter which came with 6 meats and 3 sides. The meats... More

I truly enjoyed the food and atmosphere here...I noticed on the beef brisket, which was finally chopped that there was NO fat on the plate--what a change from the other bbq places in town, who love to serve up lots of grissle and fat with their entrees! They are great for big groups--it didn't phase them one bit that we... More

This place is friendly and what you would expect out of a small town....smoke rising out of the smokers...it is cooked fresh on-site. It is a little pricey, but the portions are reasonable. Not the all-time best BBQ I've ever had...but it IS the best I've had in Montgomery, AL (I'm from Texas).
