There isn't much for restaurant options in the town of White Springs, and the few that there are seem to come and go with the seasons. So, I didn't pay much attention when a place called "Fat Belly's" opened up shop a while ago. But seeing that it had stayed open over a year, and the parking lot was full of work trucks most lunch hours, I finally decided to give it a try.
I didn't come specifically looking for barbecue, but when I saw they had a barbecue section on their menu, I knew I had to try it. Options were limited; sliced or chopped pork sandwich, sliced pork plate, or chicken. I went for the chopped sandwich and was not disappointed. A pile of perfect pork completely covered one half of a large, lightly toasted sandwich bun. It was smoky with lots of bits of flavorful crust throughout.
The beans and fries I got as sides were both respectable- beans meaty and fries hot and fresh. They also brewed good, strong sweet tea- something you don't find everywhere. But the pork was the star. I'll be back for one of these sandwiches again, as long as they can keep the doors open.
