Perhaps I have just been spoiled by Sonny's for too long but this place was horrible. The service was friendly enough but the food was very disappointing.

This fat boys has been going for over 40 years and makes as good if not better as hey did back then. I make it a point to eat there at least once any time i'm in the Ocala area.

Wow!! Were we impressed with this place! Service: super and so friendly (thank you Linda) Baked beans: best I've ever had. Chicken plate: amazing! The ribs: delicious! Great dinner to end the day after enjoying Silver Springs.

Took some friends to lunch at Fat Boys. I was told by the waitress that it wasn't connected to any other Fat Boys, anywhere. This was news to me because I assumed it was part of the franchise that originated at Cocoa Beach Florida and...More

Meaty St. Louis style ribs. All you can eat ribs for $12.99 are a deal. Excellent and friendly service.

Hubby and I ordered the sliced pork sandwich with French fries and it was great. Moist meat, toasted by and freshly cooked fries. Service was great as well.

Mom, 83, Dad, 86 (almost), enjoyed our lunch. The server wished Mom Happy Birthday and served us nicely. Always a great place for great BBQ!

Nothing fancy, but the ribs are some of the best anywhere. The beef and turkey were well appreciated too. The prices are great. So glad we found this place!

Good tasting barbecue. Try to eat there every time we are in Ocala. Not fancy . Reasonably priced meals. Kid friendly.

Small town restaurant with amazing food. Ribs are amazing and salads are huge. All you can eat ribs everyday of the week.
