If you're looking for a not-your-ordinary burger place - Fat Willy's is a great place to find a creative burger/sandwich menu with lots of choices you'll definitely want to try. Great service, bar and cool decor. We loved the food! Will definitely go back.

We stopped in our last night in town and wasn't disappointed. The burgers were great! I'd highly recommend this to anyone I knew going to Rochester. The environment was fun and our server was hilarious. We will definitely come back.
