Review of Fat Boys BBQ - CLOSED

Fat Boys BBQ

Reviewed May 22, 2013

A lot of folks have tried to make the Cedar Post (as it is still known) a viable business. The folks of Fat Boys have kept it going for quite some time now. It is conveniently located off I-75 Exit 129 and out of site of the Wendy's, McDonalds and Waffle House. Lucky for the locals. I'd hate to have to wade through a bunch of tourists--- but if you're willing to venture off the main drag a bit, it's well worth it (but promise to blend with the locals). This place is not within the Georgetown City limits, so smoking is allowed. As a non-smoker, that's never been a real problem.

The BBQ is smoked on site. All the side items seem to be pretty standard stuff, most likely not home made. The food is plentiful (my pulled pork plate with two sides made lunch for the next day) and reasonably priced. Service is down-home. The decor is a collection of antiques, military memrobilia, Coca Cola collectibles, etc. The building itself is a log cabin, though I'm not sure if it is historic or originally built for a restaurant.

Friday and Saturday nights feature Karaoke, which can be irritating or not. The night we were there wasn't too bad. The music isn't so loud you can't hear yourself think.

We've also used this place to cater special events, they are quite competitive with pricing.

Sort of a back woods BBQ. Good food and service. Unfortunately, they have karaoke. Generally a curse on the human ear and this place is no different. Neat junk hanging on the wall. If we were in the area, we'd go back.

Visited Fat Boys during a trip to the Kentucky Horse Park as recommended by the front desk clerk at our hotel with family of 4. We ate there on a Thursday so service was ok and we were brought our food pretty fast. Atmosphere is as expected from a BBQ joint, lots of tools, antiques, etc hanging from the walls and ceiling. We ordered the sampler ( brisket, pulled pork & ribs), ribs, and a bacon ham and turkey club. Sides ordered were cowboy beans, coleslaw, French fries, cornbread, and onion rings. Overall BBQ meats ordered were bland the best meat was the ribs due to the sauce to meat ratio. Meats were perfectly cooked though. Cornbread was as thin as a pancake, average flavor. Most of the food needed salt. Coleslaw was pretty good. I think price was a little overpriced for what it was. I don't feel cheated but will not return, nothing out of the ordinary. I can get better ribs at Chilis.

We heard of Fat Boys by recommendation of a local when we stopped for gas, We were looking for good food, casual setting. We were in the middle of a rode trip. Location a little bit off of expressway, but easy to find and easy to get back on expressway. The best pulled pork sandwich I have ever had. Setting nothing fancy, but clean and rustic, We loved it. Had we not taken another route home, we would have made a point of stopping again.
