You've picked your meat - now add your sides. Add a cup of crunchy coleslaw that brings a fresh crunch to your meal, or a slice of soft, sweet cornbread that's perfect for soaking up BBQ sauce. Or, might we recommend our famous Harley Fries, a tray of crispy fries layered with creamy mac & cheese? Whatever you choose, don't miss out on these delicious bites that add the perfect compliment to your BBQ feast.

This place was great. We came in with a large group of hungry girls and their families after a couple of softball games today, and this place delivered. They brought out our food very quickly, and it was all cooked to order. The employees were all so very nice and accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. If we ever come back out to Stockton, this place would be one of the first on my list.

I visited for my first time to support local businesses during Restaurant Week 2024 and I can't believe they have been here for 6 years and I never tried them. I love their Fire Burger and can't wait until I go back.

Saying it was good does NOT do this food justice! I catered full trays last Saturday and had tri-tip, ribs, pulled pork, and chicken, and let me tell you, my guests were RAVING about the food!! Everyone loved how tender the meat was and the flavor; this is one of the first parties I’ve had that people went up for seconds and thirds!! Everything was finished, the tri-tip was a fan favorite, and in second place were the ribs! I can’t remember how many compliments I had on the food! I will definitely be using Fat City BBQ to cater my parties again. Thank you so much.
