I had lunch here today. This is the sort of place where one can pay, eat and leave within a few minutes. One pays $12 for an all-you-can-eat pizza buffet. The pizza is not great, but it is quite edible and filling. The price also...includes unlimited beverages and some desserts (cookies and cinnamon balls made with pizza dough). I found the sauce on the pizza a bit sweet and the crust a bit thick. The toppings were generous, though the pepperoni did not taste like much. I remedied that by adding a bit from the salad bar (also included in the price). The atmosphere was very basic - think diner or fast food place. The clientele is definitely not the sort who shop in the natural food store a few doors away. The staff, to the extent that I had any interaction with them, seemed friendly - but not particularly efficient at wiping tables. I visited three or four tables before I found one that did not have crumbs from previous diners. From the time I arrived until the time I left, less than fifteen minutes passed and I was quite full when I walked out the door.More

Today, we visited Fat Jimmy's buffet for the first time since the pandemic - so awesome. The buffet is covid safe, each guest gets their own set of tongs which creates a completely touchless experience from beginning to end. We sat outside at a picnic...table and enjoyed every delicious bite of pizza, salad, sweet balls and butter balls. Plenty of pizza options for everyone - from vegetarian to meat lovers to chicken/ranch. Can't wait to return again soon!More

Whether you’re a local or just in town on business or for pleasure you can’t go wrong with Fat Jimmy’s. In my opinion it’s definitely the best pizza joint in all of Louisville.

Ten dollar pizza buffet SOUNDS great. Forgettaboutit! Bland and messy. Inattentive service. Big disappointment.

One of my favorite pizza places in Louisville. Okay, Louisville doesn't have the best pizza (you have to go to Chicago for that) but if you want some GOOD pizza in a friendly atmosphere, head over to Fat Jimmy's in Middletown. If you're not sure...what you want, they offer a buffet, where you can get a little bit of everything. Tossed salad, pasta salad, every pizza imaginable, and sweet balls! Oh....the sweet balls are amazing (and it's really fun to order those too......."Give me an order of your sweet balls!:). They're cinnamon sugar balls of dough and are amazing. Super fast pizza too. My daughter, who doesn't like pizza, will actually ask for Fat Jimmy's.More

We love pizza and heard this was one of the better ones in the area so we thought we would give them a try. The soup tonight was Taco and was delicious. I was surprised when I found out it was homemade. It was so...filling you could make a meal out of it and the cheese sticks. The salad bar was very fresh with many different ingredients. Best of all was the selection of pizzas. Among the favorites like cheese, pepperoni, sausage, spicy tito and chicken bacon ranch there was a veggie pizza. It was covered with veggies and cheese and was outstanding. I could not pick a favorite since I liked all of them. The chocolate chip cookies and the sweet dough balls were extra sweet to finish off a very good meal. If you like pizza you'll love Jimmy's. For $10 you get all you can eat, a cold drink and dessert. If you are in the area give them a try.More

My family and I recently tried Fat Jimmys. We are from out of town so we had not even heard of it before, but I am glad we found it! There were eight of us and the staff was helpful in pushing together some tables....The pizza was hot and fresh, and there was plenty of it. The value was exceptional, my family of six had unlimited pizza, salad, bread and drinks for under $50! The guy at the register was also very attentive in taking our used plates and making sure we were doing ok. I can’t remember his name.. (but he said he was a photographer when we asked him to take a photo for us!) Next time we are in the area we will definitely return!More

We love eating at Fat Jimmys. We normally get the buffet. He is always prompt at getting the food out if it's getting low. I would recommend going if you're looking for a family friendly pizza restaurant.

If you haven't been to Fat Jimmy's, you're missing out. The guys making the pizzas ad working the counter are the friendliest bunch of pizza slingers I've ever met. The selection is good and fresh hot pizzas are always coming out to the buffet bar....If you don't want the buffet, you can certainly order off the menu, but you probably won't want to once you see all of the pizza options, salad, soup, and desserts available to you.More
