My brother,who had lived in Kissimmee for years,introduced me to Fat Boys when I first moved down here from New York City.He told me that the place was a great local favorite. He said they once had a fire and that patrons had contributed towards repairs to help speed re-opening.I second his recommendation-the flavor is really good.Want good barbecue?Come here... More

I had the bbq beef platter and it was ok, not a very smoking flavor and the meat was kinda dry. The baked beans & coleslaw where very good.

Loved the waitress and the fact the locals frequent the place. The barbeque was excellent and a great price!

Service was good, a very friendly place. Bar-b-q was disappointing. No really bad boy pit smells or food. I was hoping for a more hard core pulled pork or brisket shack.

I wish I could rate Fat Boys 100 stars!! We had the most organized & professional service for our wedding reception. We were on a budget after paying for a wedding, but Fat Boys worked with our budget & went above & beyond our expectations!! All the meat with different choices of sauce & sides was perfect for our group... More

Feel a little guilty writing a review for breakfast in an establishment specializing in other areas of gastronomy. So will keep it short and fair by saying breakfast was pretty average, dry eggs, undercooked country potatoes and cold sausage. Staff were busy yet polite, filled a gap, not sure id return!

A hidden gem spot and historical spot. Opened in the same year Disney World did experienced lots of changes since 1971. Very yummy Bar-B-Q food, great people, friendly atmosphere, and cool design inside.

Quality of food has definetly gone down Service was very average with no offer of soda refills As for how to deal with a problem the owners granddaughter slammed the register shut and showed unnecessary attitude. Still I was able to leave but she is stuck there for the rest of her life. Don't need to be overcharged for a... More
