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.

A suggestion from a gentleman at the hardware store sent me to Fat Larry's...what a treat!! I love to "go where the locals eat" and find great "home cookin". I hit pay dirt! There are M-F lunch specials...meat and two veggies, with some offerings changing with the seasons. Also erase board specials. Dessert always gets my attention, so the Banana... More

Larry's was ok... the meat was a little dry. The service was good and the atmosphere is perfect BBQ setting. We'll try it again.

We've eaten here twice now. Overall decent BBQ, nothing spectacular but decent. Had the catfish one time as well which was a little mushy.

My family has pretty much become regulars here. You have to try the fried green beans. They are out of this world good. Be sure to ask for the Comeback sauce. The smoked turkey ribs (oh my goodness)! That's all that I will say about them. The brisket is too die for! My wife loves the chicken tenders. Oh yeah... More

Don't go for the BBQ, despite the fact they have won several awards. Don't go for the atmosphere, it is outdated and needs a facelift. But... go for the Prime Rib special. They smoke that bad boy, and serve up the hunk of meat with a loaded baked potato, and a fresh tossed salad. Did I mention they make their... More
