“Run of the mill food”
Reviewed May 12, 2011

If you are looking for good BBQ go elsewhere. The sides are all out of a can and the BBQ does not taste smoked. It is factory BBQ as opposed to home made.

“Best barbecue place in Western NC”
Reviewed October 23, 2010

We will always go out of our way to eat here. It is the best barbecue around. Excellent flavor, friendly authentic service, and the ribs...the meat just falls right off the bone. Also have a kids menu for the little ones.

“Good food for a good price”
Reviewed July 3, 2010

We went for a late lunch. I had the rib platter and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. The portions were generous and everything tasted great. The prices were also quite reasonable.

“We thought it was pretty good”
Reviewed April 19, 2010

This was our first BBQ experience in the US and our family of four thought Fat Buddies was pretty good. The portion sizes were adequate, the food was good quality and tasty and the drinks were cold. There was a kids menu and activity sheet. We spent some fun time playing games with our 2 boys.
