Soul food is lauded for its heartiness, zest, and ability to upset the stomachs of vampires. Avoid unwanted dinner guests with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Southern comfort fare at Big Fatty's Catering Kitchen.
Big Fatty's Catering Kitchen conjures a hearty menu of comforting dishes, Southern staples, and a rotation of daily specials. Smiles get saucy after a few bites of barbecue pork ($10.95), and bone-in chicken ($10.95) is pan-fried instead of car-radiator-fried. Sandwiches such as the catfish po boy with a cornmeal crust ($10.95) or the One-Eyed Jack burger with egg, jalapeños, and sour cream ($9.95) are available all day and are paired with one side, such as fried okra, turnip greens, or coleslaw. Edible options for herbivores include a roasted eggplant with tomatoes ($12.95) and a veggie tofu sandwich smothered in avocado and hummus ($9.95), and the brunch menu packs plates instead of diners’ back pockets with savory omelets ($10.95–$13.95), chicken-fried steak ($12.95), and shrimp and grits ($10.95).
Big Fatty's Kitchen
A vibrant outdoor mural with a giant arm leads the way to Big Fatty's Kitchen, with the heart tattoo on its bicep declaring its love for cold beer, and its hand—adorned with a blingy dollar sign ring—pointing toward poboys and brunch. Inside the cheery yellow and fuchsia dining room, chefs whip up jerk chicken, barbequed pork, burgers, and hearty vegetarian dishes. Patrons can nibble indoors while spinning the knobs of a foosball table, pack up their suppers for carry-out orders, or invite Big Fatty’s to cater their local celebrations.
