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.

Fat Willy's has rapidly grown to be one of our favorite places in Rochester for causal dining. The service is good, food comes promptly and the taste is great. We find ourselves going back more and more

Great Burger menu, sit at the bar and talk to some locals. Watch a game or walk around and look at the walls full of vintage hot rod decor. We will be back again!

I don't normally like burger place kinda person, but I ordered a chicken sandwich and my husband had a burger. My chicken was moist and juicy, my husband's burger was above average. I would go back again. Atmosphere was casual, staff was friendly and fast.

Thank Rainydaywoman13
