Drove through Canyon late looking for a place to grab a bite. Stopped in and ordered brisket plates. Probably not the best bbq we had ever eaten, but it was tender and tasty. Side dishes of beans, potato salad and cole slaw were very good...More

I had the hot link sandwich and chips ( because I can't remember when I've seen hot links on a menu). I was expecting a link on a hot dog bun. Instead the link, about 2 inches in diameter was sliced in rounds and piled...More

This has long been one of my favorite places until a recent takeout order. Chopped beef sandwich was fine. But they seem to have forgotten about the sausage plate. Not sure if they have cut back or just reduced the amount of meat they serve....More

I enjoyed my experience at Fat Boy's, which was recommended to me by multiple people. Had a solid three-meat meal with the sides. Slaw and potato salad were tasty, not generic by any means. Would return.

It was not what I was excepting, fast food maybe the best way to describe it. A very small simple menu, disappointed there was no chicken on it. Put all that aside. The staff greeted us as we walked in and saw to our needs...More
