Simply one of the worst meals we've had, not just on our trip to Florida, but period. Where to start...deserted at 2pm, didn't feel especially clean, and apart from the garlic bread every food item was disappointing or worrying. The baked potato had been baked some time in the past week, but not that morning - similarly the corn wasn't... More

The place is great! The food and service was excellent. The food is on point and tastes very good. The chicken, beans, slaw, and gizzards were delightful. The dessert butterfinger cake was moist and full of flavor. The service was excellent. The waitress was on time and remembered everything. I will go back as soon as I can. Everyone in... More

Servers are polite, but ribs were so so. Ribs are brought to you plain, you squirt on the table sauce as you like.

Worst biscuits and gravy I have EVER had....tasted like canned gravy. Also ordered fried pickles that were frozen pre-breaded. Tasted ok but would expect hand breaded from a small mom and pop place such as this. Had a burger which was the worstbI have ever had. Zero seasoning at all bun not toasted. Water tasted like it was from a... More

I work near this restaurant but for some reason I'd never stopped in before yesterday. I'll definitely be returning! I had the catfish lunch and the fish was amazing. At first I was afraid from the color that it would be too done but it was perfect - light and flavorful. I had it with fries and green beans. The... More

Real BBQ. Ribs are very tasty, even without sauce. Meaty and not greasy. Baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon butter are memorable. Baked beans very flavorful. Staff is delightful.

When I first enjoyed Fat boys 36 years ago I remember picking from the kids menu due to the big portions .. My kids pointed out I can now order from the seniors menu as an over 50! Starting with the varied salad bowl we shared as a family a feast for 2 with an extra 1lb of ribs All... More
