A tiny place with large portions. Certainly not a bad place. The owner lady is loud, not rude, the line is fine but there is a difference. I would come back, as my wife loved her shrimp po'boy.

Big Fatty's opened their doors to some of my friends for a pop up art show / silent auction. The atmosphere was so welcoming and inviting. The food was absolutely amazing. They came up with many specials for the event which was unexpected.
