We had brunch at Big Fatty's last weekend, and were blown away by how great it was. The menu is so creative and I loved the fun names. Big Pat Biscuit, D**n Yankee, Screw the Pooch, The Summit.... I decided on the Big Phat Biscuit, which was 2 open-faced biscuits, smothered in gravy and topped with smoked pork tenderloin and... More

OK Folks this place is fantastic! Great fresh food and everything the menu is fantastic. If you want quality gourmet food from a top notch chef at a very reasonable price then come here and you won't be disappointed. Gotta say that two of my favorite things here is the mac n cheese and the fried okra...it's honestly addictive!!!

No matter the time of day, day of the week, occasion or lack thereof, each meal has been terrific. Variety of main courses, wonderful and large sides, and creative combinations on each visit, from solo lunches to thirty guests for a birthday party, and it only gets better. Our best overall eatery in West Knoxville.

We read about Big Fatty's on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try for lunch. The first thing we noticed was that it was hard to find. Its signage seen from the west was very small and the sign seen from the east was large, but blocked by parked cars. After finally finding it, we walked in and... More

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.
