Fat Boyz Bbq--restaurant Review--ft. Lauderdale

It has been a bad week for movies and restaurants! As creatures of habit, we usually go to Quarterdeck before attending a show at BPAC but they are closed while making a transfer to their newly built location so we decided to go to the newest of 4-5 restaurants that have been in this location before. It doesn't look much different than the last two BBQ places there and as they did at the end of their run Fat Boyz BBQ is also a fast-casual restaurant which when you are paying $15.50 plus tax seems to say that they should be full service but that's not my main quarrel with this place. I ordered the 5 dry rib bbq which came with 2 sides. The ribs are served on paper on a tray with the 2 sides in small plastic cups and you help yourself to plastic knives and forks and get your own soft drinks. On the plus side is the order taker, Tatty according to the receipt, who was pleasant, told us to take our time and after paying handed us a number stand to take to the table. (That's the first trip the customer has to take to the table, then you go for the drinks, then you go for plastic ware, etc.) Oh, by the way, there are menus around but most customers will get a crick in their neck looking up at the written menu on the board above the bar. The ribs were good and there are 3 sauces on the table. The two sides I ordered were Cole Slaw and mac 'n cheese. The slaw tasted as it came out of a gallon premixed bottle and, the nicest way I can put it is the mac 'n cheese was the worst I ever tasted! It was like a ball of glue so I didn't say anything as at least it was only a small scoop! I wonder what will be the next food place in this location?

I like to make my own BarBque and I conbine two sauces to get the taste we love. Sweet Baby Ray's and John's hot barBque sauce. We like it sweet and hot.

I do that once in awhile but it is so much easier/nicer when someone else makes it and serves it to me!!!

We have driven out of our way to buy ribs at the Rendevous in Memphis. I have a bottle of their seasoning that I put on smoked sausage to eat with cheese cubes and saltines.

I use to go there all the time--there was an even better one in east Memphis--that right now I don't remember--it was right next door to my office. My friend Chuck sends me a 'care' package from the Rendevous every year or so!

Many thousands of restaurants--very few good and even less memorable!
