It was amazing—great and friendly service and such delicious food! Food Highlights were the pork belly and the collard greens. The bartender also put Bluey on the tv for our kids!

We hired Fat Pete's BBQ as our wedding caterer, and you guys... let me tell you HOW MANY COMPLIMENTS WE GOT!! Everyone was gushing about how good our food was, the staff of Fat Pete's was AMAZING - extra special shout out to PJ and Woody, both of whom we could not have succeeded without.

Atmosphere and Ambiance is neat, comfortable and has the typical american bar style. The restaurant appears super clean. Servers are pleasant and communicative. And most importantly the food is nicely presented, taste was great, all to a good price point. I can highly recommend the 3 meat platter. The pulled pork and the baby back ribs are delicious!
