My family has been coming here for years and have been enjoying good local BBQ! The atmosphere is great and you really can't beat the smell of wood burning in the smoker. Baby back ribs are best for take out as they are really messy...spareribs and sliced pork and brisket are excellent and fat jacks BBQ sauce is great too...prices... More

My wife and I enjoy eating out at different places, I noticed the special for all you can eat on Tuesday nights and even invited my daughter and her family out last night for what I thought would be a great food experience, wrong!...

I have been coming to Fat Jack's for years and loved it every time. I like the ribs for dinner (preferably carry-out as they do get messy!). For lunch I normally get the sliced pork sandwich which comes with fries or baked beans (these are quite good, especially with a little extra barbecue sauce squirted in) and coleslaw and a... More

Weekday specials usually include ribs. Meat came completely off bones of ribs. Prices were reasonable.

We stopped in because our first choice, Italian, was closed on Sunday and Fat Jack's was just down the road. We arrived around 7:15 and the place was still rather busy. I ordered a full slab of spare ribs and my father ordered the beef dinner. Our server was attentive and courteous the whole way through. Our meals were just... More

Great selection on menu. We visited when it was all-u-can-eat chicken for $9.50 pp. Such a deal! Family-type of eatery, give it a try if you crave barbecue!

I just started ordering form Fat Jacks, often for carryout for lunch and everyone who orders from our work place loves it! The daily specials are great, the "sides" are wonderful The price is reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Salads are fresh, cole slaw is tasty and unique, and each dish from Jambalaya to Barbecue to Chicken... More

I ordered a take out order for several racks of ribs early in the day and was quoted a price that was their "catering price". When I picked up that evening the cashier needed help ringing up my ticket and got someone from the kitchen. The man that came out and told me that wasn't going to be the price... More
