Small but very busy. Great food and lots of it. Staff was very nice and accommodating. I had the chicken sandwich and it was great, family had their burgers and raved about them.

We are here while in town. The burgers are large and delicious. However, we ordered chili cheese fries, onion rings, and tater tots. I wasn’t impressed with any of the side items.

The burgers at Fat Boy are the absolute best around. The buns are homemade daily and they don't skimp on the meat either. There is a menu, but the burgers are the best. You have to have a big mouth to get the first bite...More

Strongly recommend the sourdough bun. Great burger. I had jalapeños on mine and the flavor was great. Home fries were very nice, but the onion rings were a big hit. Truly homemade. Very tasty.

Usually do the Catfish thing here on Friday....which is always a winner, but this time tried the Philly....wow, this is an awesome sandwich, and so loaded, half went home with me for another round! Rayette has another winner here! Try it, you won't be disappointed!

If you're thinking burgers, this is place you want. If you see the sign and think "ya! Prolly try some good vegetarian food there" then youre likely in need of mental healthcare. This is Texas sized food for carnivores. Ye Haw!

The Fat Boy 1/2 pound burger lives up to its name. Not only big and delicious but juicy too! Our order of onion rings was a delicious and generous helping too!

If you want a dripping good, juicy good hamburger, then this is the place to put on the brakes, and hop on in. One of my favorite burgers.

The counter help folks were nice and friendly. The prices are in line with a nice bother joint. Tables, floor and restrooms were all clean. Food was tasty and served super hot. There were a few more flys than I like but not a lot...More
