Started going through drive thru when I absolutely had to because a few times when I went in to eat, I sat at the table 15-20 minutes before being acknowledged. Today, I ordered soup and salad and picked up at drive through. A lot of the lettuce is brown and wilted. They also gave me ketchup. I have no idea... More

Fat Pats is popular for their burgers but I prefer the hot dogs. The Slaw Dog is really good with the mix of Cole slaw and chili. It sounds odd but surprisingly it works. The burgers are ok. They are big so I recommend the Little Boy burger unless you are starving or are a big eater, otherwise the smaller... More

Had seen the place but never stopped in until today. Ordered the Fat Boy burger, and was really happy with my choice. This was a huge burger! I liked the fact that it's hand formed and not the typical frozen perfectly round patty. Definitley going back!

One of the best, if not the best, places in Lafayette to get a burger. Their onion rings are perfect! Great atmosphere and friendly wait staff.

Great burger. Ate at the Verot School location recently and was very pleasantly surprised. I expected more of the same old bar food...but nope, the burger was quite large, seasoned well and cooked to order. The place is a little noisy, but hey, it's a sports bar. I will be back.

If you are in a hurry and don't want fast food, Fat Pat's is a good choice. You can get burgers or wraps that are freshly made to order and a a budget price. The service is always fast and friendly.
