Local Hot Spot

Fatboys in Kissimmee is a locals type of place. Great breakfast, (get the ham steak) the sliced beef sandwich with a bowl of beans can't be beat for lunch or dinner. Get wings to take out with a Fatboy's Salad. Good Eatin' !!!

Most mediocre restaurants have a functional microwave. Most BBQ restaurants would dream of using micro wave..........fat boys does neither so serves up luke warm to cold food which tasted like it had been smoked with old pallets. Truly horrible AVOID. Only positive was the Boston beans and the Texas toast

Had lunch here last week. It was marginal. A supersize hamburger with fries and beans. The portions were above average.The meat was sub par to average, a litlle dry and not very tasteful. The tomatoes very raw and hard.The waitress warned me the beans were reheated in the micro and were burning hot. Therefore after this second chance not for... More

To say I was a fan of Fat Boy's is an understatement. I try to get to Florida once a year & a visit to Fat Boys was always top of my list. On a recent visit to central Florida I was salivating at the thought of digging into a chicken & ribs, but I was left wanting. When we... More

All you can eat BBQ includes chicken, ribs and brisket with 2 sides. Fries and cole slaw was choices. Puled pork was another one we had. Sweet tea is ok and glasses kept full. Nice wait staff, but tables are pretty small for family of 4 and baby in highchair.

We came for lunch & all had BBQ. There were four of us. Our server was friendly & our food was good. We all had plenty of food & had to take some home with us. Best bbq in a long time! Highly recommend! You know the place is great when all the locals come there for bbq!

This is a lovely little place. It's a little further down the 192 than you'd think to go, what with all the run down/closed down/abandoned buildings. Once you find it though, you're in for a treat. Really good BBQ, nice and simple. The staff were very friendly and even advised against getting anything in addition to the feast for 4... More

We went about an hour before closing. We picked the try everything feast for 2. We picked green beans instead of slaw, fries, and a baked potato since each of us got a side. We got to sample the chicken, ribs, turkey, pork, and beef. All of the meats were very good. BBQ sauce seems to be a regional thing.... More

Great beef and pork bbq. The best baked beans anywhere. We visit at least once on every vacation to Orlando. Not a traditional chain restaurant.

I'm from CT. We decided to stop in here because we wanted to eat some BBQ. I can honestly say the BBQ in CT is better. The pulled pork and turkey was almost like deli slices. It was okay. The best part was the garlic bread..
