Fat Jimmy's C-Side BBQ on Carnival Cruise Line

Fat Jimmy's BBQ

Rather than a standard grill that just serves hot dogs and hamburgers, Fat Jimmy's C-Side BBQ -- a poolside venue found on just three of the ships in Carnival's fleet -- is a barbecue joint that will have any meat-lover drooling. A sign at the venue states it's "open on C-Days." (Translation: It's open on sea days -- for lunch only.) As such, it's a popular place for sunbathers to snag a quick bite while they're lounging on the lido deck.

Ambiance

Fat Jimmy's BBQ is a grab-and-go buffet eatery, as opposed to a sit-down restaurant. (Don't worry; there are tables nearby.) Although the layout is reminiscent of a '50s-style diner, featuring red, blue and chrome with a checkered backsplash, the fare itself is similar to what you'd find at a classic summertime backyard barbecue -- perfect for afternoons by the pool.
