The only "BBQ" offered is "chopped" but when delivered it was grey mush with zero identifiable pieces of meat - it didn't taste even decent, either - terrible and I'll never return

We came across the reviews for Fat Boys as we were running in to Canyon after hiking at Palo Duro one Saturday evening. We decided to give it a go and we were pleased with the experience.

The food was good and the staff was friendly. Not much room inside so don't go at rush time for meals

Anyone who knows what real bbq is knows this place is a joke, it's amazing how it's stayed in business, I guess hungry college kids will eat anything , summer sausage soaked in water is not BBQ, it IS DISGUSTING, dry shredded brisket that you need a gallon of bbq sauce on to even be able to swallow, do yourself...

While staying in Canyon, we looked at the Fat Boy's BBQ facebook page and saw that they were open until 9 pm. We took a little longer to get ready and arrived at 8:02 pm to find the chairs on the tables and that the restaurant closed at 8 pm instead.
