R.I.P. - Fat Slim's BBQ Joint - Phoenix

Seth Chadwick | Dec 31, 2005 03:48 PM

Well, that didn't last long.

After about a year of business, Fat Slim's BBQ Joint has closed up shop and disappeared.

Arriving for lunch today, friends and I noticed a small sign in the window saying that Fat Slim's had moved on to "greener pastures." It thanked the people of Phoenix and said they may open up a new place somewhere else.

I am curious as to the reason why they closed, as the place built up a sizable clientel and was uniformly busy the times I would go there (and I was eating there about once a month). The food was good and tasty, the prices were reasonable, and the service was decent.

I guess it was not meant to be.
