Fat Boy's Bar-B-Que Ranch

After 25 years in the trucking and cattle business, Gretchen and I opened Fat Boy’s Bar-B-Que Ranch in downtown Prattville on the banks of the Autauga Creek. When the opportunity came to open a restaurant I asked the Lord what he wanted me to do. After a lot of encouragement from friends and ferverent prayers, the Lord simply said, “Trust Me”. And I did. We leased a facility in 1998 and embarked in a new career that we had no prior experience. In our restaurant of 52 seats, we opened on June 1 and suffered a fire 2 ½ months later. We remodeled and expanded the capacity to 75 seats and reopened in January 1999. A year later the restaurant was enlarged to a capacity of 175 with a new dining room and was established as an icon of local flavor where “everything is homemade….the way its supposed to be”. We purchased the building and an additional 1½ acres in 2004 to bring us to where we are now sitting on the creek bank. "OUR SUCCESS IS TO THE GLORY OF THE LORD, NOT ME OR GRETCHEN." --Danny Loftin
