A great spot for great BBQ, staining your shirt and shorts, and a cool atmosphere. The BBQ brisket was pretty good, although a little fatty. The cornbread was delicious, and the mac and cheese was good as well.

We sampled most of the menu and enjoyed it all. Because Fette Sau sells the barbeque by the pound we were able as much or as little as we desired so that we could test more items. Good whiskey and beer selections.

This place is heaven for all those who love BBQ. I mean there's meat choices with sides by the weight. This is definitely a carnivore's paradise. Great atmosphere with indoor and partial outdoor seating.

Fette Sau - Fishtown. It's a bit more expensive than the average BBQ lunch, especially for a cafeteria style service, but the quality of the ingredients, and the execution of the preparation make up for it. Started out with a 1/2 lb. of Niman Ranch...More

Took my second trip here this past weekend. Ordered tons of pulled pork, mac and cheese and pickles. Fun vibe, good beer. The line can be a bit long and food is a bit pricey
