So their slogan is "South in ya mouth" and they did a great job. Being from the south I can say that they did a great job while it obviously can't compete with our BBQ it was quite good. Great job guys :)

My office is located close by so I grab a quick meal here several times a month. Some days the pork is out of this world and other days it is dry, flavorless and not remotely close to BBQ. The service is hit or miss, also. The male staff member who is there, more often than not, at lunch time... More

We treated our son and daughter in law and grandchildren to a meal at Big Fattys and it was terrific. We ordered the big meat special which includes a full rack, 2 half chickens, lots of pulled pork and bbq sauce. The girls wanted mac and cheese. We also ordered hush puppies and cole slaw. All this washed down with... More

We found Fatty's during our trip to Burlington. It's a short walk from the aquarium which is a big attraction, and its a great alternative to some of the pricier restaurants. The food was great, in taste, and quantity. The service was great too, and very nice. We all had something different and everyone was very happy with their choice.... More

This is my second visit to Big Fatty's. I would say it is what I expected from BBQ in Vermont. I was pleasantly greeted when walking in the door the decor and atmosphere was spot on for a small BBQ shop. I order the pulled pork sandwich and beef briscut. I started with the pulled pork and it tasted like... More
