Fat Willy's Rib Shack

This place is a lot nicer than I thought it was going to be.

How is that for a ringing endorsement?

Seriously though - I liked the ambiance of the laid back, country bbq joint. But, the food was just not as good as Carson's. And there is no free chopped liver here. In fact, there is NOTHING free here. No bread on the table. 75 cents extra if you want a nonhouse salad dressing. 3 dollar charge for sharing a meal. lame.

I ordered one of their "baskets" that came with half slab of baby back ribs, steak fries, and texas toast. The fries and toast were gross. Maybe I should have sprung and paid the extra fee for the cornbread. The ribs were pretty good. But, as a said, not as good as Carson's. The meat was a little dry. The sauce not as delicious.

We also ordered dessert - The pecan chocolate pie was pretty good. Loading it with whip cream may have been an attempt to hide what a ridiculously small piece they give you. But, we didn't want to complain because the whole table was a little scared of our waitress.

Nothing like a little bit of fear to make us lose our appetite.
