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

Fat Larry's is not a place I will return to. Food was bad and service sucked. We tried their food on 2 occasions . The first time the food was at best so~so but the service was bad. I decided that Fat Larry's was having a bad night so we tried them again. BAD MOVE. The ribs were the worst... 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

We did take out of the BBQ pork sandwiches. The smoked meat was tasty and tender, the sauce is on the sweet side so if you do not like sweet sauces do not get original. Get the cole slaw on the side if doing take out so the buns do not get soggy. Fat Larry's is reasonably priced and very... More

Lunchtime sandwich plate was delicious and filling. They have a good selection of sides--the reasonable price includes two choices. Dining area was clean and service was quick. We found Fat Larry's by accident in 2013 and came back on purpose in 2014. We plan to eat on their patio on our 2015 trip to Memphis!

Good food for the price. Atmosphere not anything special, but the food is worth it. You have to try the banana pudding.

Food? Nasty. Service? Awful. Owner? Fat, loud & very rude. Eat BBQ elsewhere. The place smells like old grease and the servers think they are better than you
