The bar-b-q is great...cinnamon rolls and cookies are even better. We love the fried pickles, too. The staff is friendly too. The environment takes you back in time.

Just had dinner at Fat Dawz BBQ and although the food tasted OK, the place really needs a good cleaning. The tables were sticky. The salt and pepper shakers were dirty on top and sticky when you picked them up. We felt like, lets just...More

First of all, I’m not sure why the table seemed sticky the night you were there. The girls spray each table down after the customers leave. The sauce bottles and salt and pepper shakers also are to be wiped down and if this wasn’t done...More

I had the BBQ nachos- the bowl bowl was full of chips but a small amount of BBQ. The cheese was a cheese sauce, maybe from a can? My husband ordered brisket-it was dry, very dry.

We have eaten here many times. Great food, especially the ribs and brisket. Very good service and friendly people. Interesting decor and on some Friday nights music by local entertainers.

Off the beaten path, large room for big crowds, great BBQ plus many other specialties! Block north of the Johnson County Court House, about 1 block north from All Star Real Estate, on Fulton Street.

One of our absolute favorite places to eat! We have never had a bad meal, wait staff, or experience here. Our favorite is the monster melt, with the homemade chips! And the cinnamon rolls and cookies are to die for!

Great service, great BBQ pulled pork sandwich. I liked the beans and the homemade mac and cheese. The iced tea also hit the spot. But the one thing that the kids keep takling about is the cinnamon rolls. They were to die for! We'll definitely...More

I've been to this restaurant more times than I can count. It's one of the best restaurants in this town, if not the best. The service has always been wonderful. If you go, ask if they have any foods not listed on the menu; they've...More

I've been several times and have found the wood smoke flavor to be bitter and over powering the actual meat. The sides are good and plentiful. Service is decent.

No alcohol served. It's a dry county, but for some reason you can order a beer or margarita at La Chiquita Mexican restuarant in Clarksville. Pretty good Mexican food.
