Service was bad. Food was good. My server acted as though she would rather take a beating than stay there 1 more minute. But..... The eggs were cooked perfectly and good as was the sausage. I just got the feeling the workers had lost that...loving feeling. By that I mean nobody gave a “****” whether u liked what u got or when u got it. It happened that my food was good which is a plus bc I don’t mind offering a little feedback.More

Amazing food! Hamburgers and hot dogs are the best around. The BLT is amazing, on texas toast and Aaron piles it high with bacon! They are only open for breakfast and lunch but this is a MUST!!!!

I love their breakfast plates as well as their gravy biscuit. Their lunch is also great. Prices are unbeatable and the staff is like family. They treat you as if you actually matter to them. Thanks Fat Junior's!!!!!!!!

Huge mouthwatering burger where extra napkins are...needed . Fries are cooked perfect . Staff are friendly , and called many people by name . Desserts are homemade and if you have room a treat like Grandmothers .More

If someone hasn't told you about this place....you wouldn't know it was there. It may be a little off the beaten path (in the industrial park, actually) but it is well worth the short detour. If you're looking for excellent, inexpensive, and "down-home" cooked breakfast...or lunch, this is the place to go. From breakfast plates, breakfast sandwiches, to any of your typical lunch items, this place has it all. Cooked fresh to order, and ready quickly, this is the place to stop by for a quick bite. The atmosphere is what you would expect from a small town roadside eatery, but it is clean and always full of happy customers. I've also been to an event at the local Elks Lodge, that, to my surprise, was catered by Fat Juniors.....their catering menu was excellent to. If you haven't checked out Fat Junior's, you ought to!More

Nothing fancy, just good food! You order at the counter and someone let's you know when to go and get. The place seems to be always packed with people. They are only open during the week. Fills up fast for lunch so get there early....Lots of regulars that make sure you do it right. Quick to let you know what is good! I had a great time.More

Good food quick. Burgers are great. The Fatso is the best seller. Grilled chicken cesar salad is on point. Breakfast food will fill you up way past lunch time. Seasonal offerings as well.

stopped here when working close by. I am glad it was reccomended by customer of mine. Don't let the look of this place scare you away. It is a simple building with a gravel parking lot. GO Inside and get a great burger, hot dog...or bbq. Their fries are good also. Order the fatso burger only if you are Hungary,it is huge and very good. The owner, works the register, and lets you know, he appreciates your business.More

Wow. This is what I was hoping for...real BBQ. If you are from the South you will appreciate the decor of the place! Lots of posters to keep you engaged while waiting for your plate. WARNING: If you are not from North Carolina and order...BBQ you will NOT be fed sickeningly sweet BBQ. NC BBQ is made using vinegar for a swang. Junior's gave me a better plate of BBQ than I have ever eaten! The name is a bit misleading as none of the staff was fat nor answered to "junior". Lots of clients form the close by factories and service trucks. Great place to go for some great food.More

This breakfast and lunch counter joint is located in the Lee County Industrial Park across from the GKN plant. Simply put, they sport the best burgers in Lee County. The fries aren't bad, either, along with an occasional smattering of cakes (which the owner will...sometimes give away for free near their 1:30 pm closing time). I haven't tried their breakfast, but the burgers alone make this place well worth the sojourn out of town and off the beaten path.More
