This is the place to hitch your critter and come on it. You will undoubtedly know what I mean if you sit at the bar here. Fat Willy's has rapidly become one of my main stops for lunch. It is small and open with good service and good food, including several items that you WOULD create at home if the... More

Stopped in for lunch while shopping in the area. We had never been before so I had to ask the bartender if we sat ourselves or not(there wasn't a hostess). My son and I sat down and waited. Got some popcorn and waited. Our server came over after awhile and took our order. It appeared that they may have been... More

My husband and I ate lunch here today. Had great service. Ordered Falcon Chicken sandwich and was really good also had a bloody mary, nothing special but still very good. Looks like they have a back room that might be for large groups. Lots of tv's to watch a game and fun decor. Outside seating looks great. Will definitely go... More

Burgers galore. Service was good, and the burger recommendation from the waitress was worth the risk of eating something I don't normally eat!! A little loud, but its a bar and grill so that was expected.

This was a cool place as far as the decorations. Service was good. We only had drinks and free popcorn but the menu looked good. Pull tabs were a plus eventhough we didn't win.

Ate here with my mom. This place is definitely car themed. Food is fine and staff was polite. There is not much more to say...

This is a fun place to go. The food was very good with nice portions. The memorabilia is very cool and will keep you entertained while you wait. The pizza burger was a great mixture of beef and sausage. Great sandwich.

I have been here in the past with good food. Today the food was ok and the popcorn tasted very stale. Waitress was nice but think I might start going somewhere else in the future.

The hamburgers are good, Fries are so so. Waitress was slow took our order right away but took awhile to receive the food and drinks. And when we asked for refills on our drinks never got them.

The Fat Willy is their signature burger and I had to try it. Andouille sausage is ground right into the burger. Good texture and flavor. Fries were generic but hot and crispy. Beans were excellent. Beans, bacon, hamburger and brown sugar. Yum! I'd go back.
