Food: 3.9/5.0
Service: Self.

Fette Sau or "Fat Pig" in German, has awesome BBQ. This place has also been reported and blogged to death so I'll try not to be too repetitive, and be to the point instead. Warning: DO NOT COME DURING PEAK HOURS ON THE WEEKENDS. The lines are mad mad crazy and move super slowly. I gave up queuing and came back on a separate day.

What I liked: 
-The wall, which was filled with diagrams of different cuts of meat. Lol. Boston Butt. That gets to me all the time.
-The cinderblock building, fenced-in compound and cement floors. I'm one for sterile, industrial spaces (ala MIT) so this is right up my alley. Weird, I know.
-HMYGIHMYP (How much you get is how much you pay)
-The baby back ribs  and pork belly
-They had sarsaparilla soda!

What was so-so:
-The baked beans. Too sweet. Which is why I get my baked beans imported from the UK. It's a tad tangier 
-Pulled pork was a little dry

Spread of Heavenly Piggie Offerings:
(Hand Pulled Berkshire Shoulder, Berkshire Belly (Bacon), Berkshire St Louis Style Pork Ribs, Berkshire Ham, Berkshire Sausage)
Fette Sau Business Card. I've been toying with the idea of getting a piggy tattoo for a while now, so I'm collecting images for reference...
