This was our second time stopping at Fat Larry's while on a road trip. It isn't too far off if I 40 in Bartlett and the barbeque is sooo good. I highly recommend the Barbeque Nachos. Imagine a layer of nachos, a layer of amazing queso with amazing pulled pork and barbeque sauce. It is absolute heaven. We stopped in... More

Fat Larry's is located just off the highway. A little shanty-like building that calls out to locals and tourists to come and dine and sit and visit and enjoy it all. Plain tables served by nice, friendly, eager to please wait staff that bring excellent BBQ, And all the trimmings. Perfectly prepared, fresh, tasty, tender, moist, and as flavorful as... More

The BBQ sauce was tasty and worked well on the pulled pork, however, the ribs were really dry and inedible. Coleslaw and beans were bland also.

One of the most tender and flavorful briskets anywhere. Combo plate is excellent and neat little home style restaurant. Wednesday night's steak special was a big surprise. Steak was extremely good. Real good place and you can drive to it easily in Bartlett. No need to go to East Memphis or downtown.

Since Fat Larry's is my favorite BBQ restaurant right now, I wanted my husband, grown kids, granddaughter and great granddaughter to celebrate my '70th' birthday there. There were eight people in the party. I had the Jumbo Pork sandwich and French fries & baked beans. Excellent of course! One person had some type 'Sampler Plate' with ribs, Pork meat &... More

My family and I have been regulars at Fat Larry's for years. We have more than one testy meal with Mr. Larry at the helm. Tuesday, August 2nd, more than took the cake I will have to say. My sister's and I met to try to resolve a disturbing family situation and Larry acted as if we were trying to... More

BBQ nachos are incredible. The secret is the white cheese queso instead of the yellow kind. The BBQ ribs and pulled pork are good also. For lunch there are daily lunch specials, which generally arrive quickly.

My husband and I had been wanting to come to Fat Larry's for sometime and finally decided to go! Well they have probably got the best Barbeque sandwiches and Ribs in town. My husband and I used to be on a 'BBQ' cooking team here in Memphis and we also used to judge in the Memphis In May BBQ Cooking... More

From the outside appearance this would not have been a restaurant that I would normally consider visiting. I’ve passed it by on numerous occasions. Fortunately, I’m delighted that I had decided to give it a try. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The food was freshly prepared and quite tasty. The restaurant had a lot of phone orders which kept... More

I have to consider this place excellent since we go every Friday night for dinner. It's a small place with friendly waiters and waitress and fast service. The food is always good and the prices are affordable.
