We were family of 6. Four adults n two kids. We all ordered something different n it was all good. Portions were huge and we all left feeling stuffed. Would highly recommend it.

When Fat Larry's first opened it was great. So great that we had the cater our wedding rehearsal dinner We had birthday parties there and everyone loved it. However over the last 2 yrs it has started to really decline. The last time I was there the ketchup was so old it had soured in the bottle. The food has... More

All the food was really good but the brisket is the best I've ever had. His ribs were a little dry and bland but the pulled pork and was really good and the brisket is amazing. Banana pudding was way above ordinary as well. Make sure you try the turkey ribs!

We decided to hold our annual employee appreciation dinner here for a change. It was very good. They offered us the semi private room in the back and even decorated it for us! The service was truly outstanding. Nobody in our party of 18 was ever out of a drink. Food was also very good but the brisket was the... More

I've been to Fat Larry's twice in the autumn of 2014. The BBQ is very good, ditto for the french fries and the slaw. The beer is ice cold. After that, things go downhill a bit. The ribs are just average, at best. The desserts are horrible, and we tried several. Our service was very good both visits. We will... More

Very good BBQ...pork, chicken, ribs and brisket. Lunch time meat and two plates are a great value. Great desserts...coconut cake, fried pies, banana pudding, etc. Restaurant serves steaks and other foods for those who may not be in the mood for BBQ. Lots of foods here are made from scratch. Not real fancy but a very good value...I eat here... More

We used to eat lunch here when we first moved here, because it was close to home. I was never wowed by any of it, and soon discovered there is much better BBQ in Memphis. I've lived here for two years, now and I would NEVER recommend anyone come to Bartlett for BBQ. Memphis is known for their BBQ...not Bartlett.... More

Making a trip through Memphis from South Florida always has a BBQ stop in the itinerary. Sorry but Florida is not a BBQ haven. While in Bartlett TN, just north of Memphis, I heard about Fat Larry's. My usual is Cozy Corner or Central, so I ventured to Fat Larry's. The building itself lacked charm...code word for not so neat.... More
