Some of the best BBQ I've had and sadly at times some of the worst

When these guys are on their game they are fabulous, but as often as not we get mushy BBQ and there is no place for that in the Memphis area. I sure do love them when they are on their game, but we just don't go any more due to severe inconsistency.

My Husband and I split the nachos and were full! very reasonably priced for the amount of food you get. Skip the beer and just get water 2 beers cost the same as the nachos. Simple atmosphere with a choice of outside seating. Service is friendly and helpful. We will be back. A Great local BBQ place!

Ok, first of all let me preface by saying I had been told how awesome this place was by a few people so my expectations were a little too high. I have head several things there and I can honestly say that it is a "Good" place to eat. They aren't the best BBQ joint around but in the Memphis... 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
