Good, Hometown BBQ

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!

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

My family and I visited here after getting rave reviews from local friends. The food was amazing and plentiful. Prices were reasonable especially for the amount of food we received

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.

The beef brisket was excellent. The ribs were tasty, but fell off the bone (there is a middle point where you want it tender, but also be able to pull the meat off the bone). They didn't have cold slaw the day we went, so had beans and potato salad. Beans were average and the potato salad was bland. But... More

My fiance and I ate here yesterday and were very pleased. The owner "fat boy" took our order. The food arrived quickly and was delicious. The owner came by to check on us after our food arrived. The staff was friendly, and the restaurant was clean. We would definitely eat here again.

It is hard to beat the friendly, fast service at Fat Boy's. The food is always great and seems to hit the spot when you need some good ole southern BBQ!

Danny Loftin gave up over the road trucking to open a BBQ restaurant, and the result has become a huge favorite of everyone in the area. When a BBQ restaurant in small town Alabama has the distinction of being THE BBQ retailer on the Quad at the University of Alabama home football games, or at Auburn University - he's had... More

This place has wonderful barbeque. I got the Bbq salad and my husband got the pork plate with potato salad, a side salad, and banana pudding. All were awesome. Homemade sweet tea didn't hurt either. I just moved to Prattville and anticipate may trips back to Fat Boy's, hopefully w/ some exercise mixed in so I don't become a Fat... More

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. The pulled pork was... More
