Great location next to the river. Close to downtown shopping. Fantastic good BBQ smoked fresh daily. Love the homemade fried pies for dessert. Yummy!

Consistently rated best BBQ in the River Region. Tender meat, mild to tangy sauce. Strawberry-banana puddin', and sweet tea. All home made from scratch, on site. If you leave hungry it's your own fault.

Got the taste tester plate for testing purposes because I am looking for possible cater for birthday party. Their BBQ is my favorite. Secret Sauce is great. All good is fresh and made daily. Not open on Sunday's but go on Saturday. Best little BBQ place around and nicest people ever. Highly recommend

Awesome BBQ and excellent sauce. Service is ok but the food is good. The place is local and sits on Autauga Creek. The large orders to feed groups is reasonable and the food is always good. I've been eating here for decades and bring many visitors here.

Food was mediocre and way over priced for the quantity and quality. This was a 3rd visit and we truly feel the past visits were better. Did they change owners? It was almost empty the day we had lunch there.

Fat Boy's Bar-B-Que Ranch is my favorite BBQ joint, and I LOVE BBQ! They don't drown the pork in BBQ sauce like some other places do (I hate when it turns out soogy). You get excellent BBQ at a great price. 'Fat Boy' himself took our order and made sure everything came out just right. The food arrived quickly, the... More
