One of the best BBQ restaurants in Canyon! Great chopped beef sandwiches. The sausage is good too! Has changed in years and it is as good now as it was years ago!!

I enjoyed my experience at Fat Boy's, which was recommended to me by multiple people. Had a solid three-meat meal with the sides. Slaw and potato salad were tasty, not generic by any means. Would return.

Hard to find great barbecue and reasonable prices in the same establishment, but here it is in Canyon Texas. Tried the three meat plates and they were all very good, even the "fixing" were tasty. Only drawback is they are a bit cramped for space...More

We love eating here and also picking up for an easy dinner at home. Close to WT, Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum and the downtown square. The 'fixings bar" lets you add all the condiments you want for a great meal.
