My wife and I love bbq and since we couldn't get into another restaurant, we decided to try what is now called Oak. We had the half chicken with sweet potato fries and coleslaw $13, and the half rack ribs with fried okra $13. We also had a whiskey drink and glass of wine. Bill total $40 plus I added... More

Let me first state that I am from Texas. So, BBQ is a way of life there! :) With that being said, Fat Alley BBQ fixes Pork BBQ, which is quite tasty, but doesn't live up to the Beef BBQ from Texas! I left disappointed with the taste. Others, I know, will disagree.

I'm vegetarian so it was a great surprise to see an entire meatless section on the menu at a BBQ place. The black beans and spinach were kind of a soup and delicious! My boyfriend got pulled chicken and said it was the best meal he'd had in Telluride.

I'm a long time local and have been eating here for over 2 decades so I know that it's consistently great! Outdoor seating, apres ski, large bar, and easy location make this great for lunch or dinner or just having drinks! Ask Robbie for the Sloppy Chicken sandwich!

Ate at Fat Alley on this trip to town. As always the food was excellent. Great variety, and a good value.

My family and I have been coming to this place for years, in all their various locations in town. They have good BBQ and a really good mixed salad (the dressing is unreal). It's a real local spot (at least it used to be) and big communal tables.

First class service service and food! And that was in the walk in bar. Steaks to die for cooked black and blue ...perfect.

I've eaten at Fat Alley about 10 times, partly because I like Cajun food. It's never great, but it's always pretty solid. Their gumbo is my favorite. If I want a BBQ chicken sandwich, I won't hesitate to order it though my last one had a dry bun, which put a damper on my somewhat decadent eating experience. (I typically... More
