I have for many years considered myself knowledgeable on barbecue meats that are offered around the country. Fatback's, in Quincy, Illinois is one of my favorites. The atmosphere is cozy and the tables offer a relaxing experience. The meat is smoked and the customer decides on how much or how little sauce is added. Prices are reasonable and the menu... More

My husband and I ate here again tonight. I had the special ( a cheese stuffed burger with a side of potato salad) and my husband had memphis mac-n-cheese that had pulled pork and jalapeños.

There are a handful of places to get BBQ in Quincy. This is hands down the best. Brisket or pulled pork are my favs. Try them both with the Big Q sandwich.

Bf & I ate here for the first time tonight. I was a bit skeptical cuz most bbq places don't offer much for those that don't like bbq sauce & I'm one of those. The young man (Hans) at the counter greeted us as soon as we walked in & was very pleasant & helpful when I asked about foods... More

Wonderful food, wonderful people, wonderful place. A lunch is a lot of food for the money. If you're a big ole trucker you'll be happy with the lunch. If your trying to cut back, you'll have left overs to take home-Yeah!

I enjoy watching the Food Network to see ideas from all around the country. When it comes to BBQ, Fatback's belongs in their discussion. Pulled pork and brisket were a big hit at our football game tailgating at Mizzou games this season.
