1 Welcome to Fat Daddy's Smokehouse Barbecue Restaurant. If you're here, you love barbecue - maybe even as much as we do (which would be quite an accomplishment). Lucky for you, we are Wilson's source for the tastiest Barbecue this side of the Smoky Mountains.

When you visit Fat Daddy's Smokehouse you'll be greeted by friends and treated like family. We take the time to create our delicious meats and sides from scratch using the freshest local ingredients and our tried and true recipes. You'll enjoy our hospitality as much as our cooking.

You'll have a difficult time deciding what you like best Fat Daddy's barbecue beef, our slow-cooked chicken or our mouthwatering ribs smothered in homemade barbecue sauce.

Barbecue Is What We Do Best

Fat Daddy's opened its doors in 2013, and has been serving slow cooked, authentic barbecue ever since. We are a locally owned, family run business that serves and promotes local farmers produce and meats whenever possible and available.

The secret to our flavor lies in our ‘down-home ... home-made’ recipes. Our food is made from scratch everyday and we smoke all of meats in house.
