Natalie and I went to Fatburgers with a groupon coupon I had. When we entered, I thought "oh,oh,just another order at the counter, fast food joint" But, after we ordered, sat down in one of the booths, and had our meal brought to us by a pleasant waitress, I changed my attitude. The burger was excellent, and was freshly grilled.... More

I have avoided this place for a long time because the name seems very unappetizing, but thankfully it's just truth in advertising. It's a very bright cheery primary coloured diner. It cost's twice as much as "Rotten Ronald's", but the burgers are 4X as big and the meal is more memorable. The place is also licensed and beer is cheap,... More

Very high quality burgers with plenty of choice.Quick, easy service and comfortable surroundings. It's a bit like an old style diner.

Went here for a late lunch, treated by very friendly counter staff who helped with our selections. I went with the Swiss Mushroom Melt Burger and was very pleased with the resulting burger which was the best I had had in quite a long time. My partner ordered the standard burger and was pleased but not wowed by it. I... More

I asked to order a kids meal (because I have a very small appetite) and the cashier laughed and said no. Not a huge deal, but a bit embarrassing. I just ordered a small burger instead but id like to know... Why not? Next time I will probably choose somewhere else.

I had a groupon that was going to expire soon, so I finally got around to using it. I was not sure what to expect since the name did make me wonder, whether it was really unhealthy. It was a name used back in 1952 when it first opened. The burgers are certainly FAT due to all the trimmings in... More

I didn't know what to expect from a place called 'Fatburger'. Went in with a groupon to check it out. It's a family-friendly place, rather small but spotless. You order at the counter and they bring it out to you. The burgers are all made fresh to order with just beef and no fillers. The burgers took a while to... More

This was one of the best burger meals we have had. Very fresh, good taste, fresh roll, excellent fries. Staff were efficient and friendly The only thing I don't like is the name, which conjures up images of fat dripping every ware . The reality is a good lean burger.

We were in Victoria for a quick shopping excursion. Had a groupon for this restaurant, so we gave it a try. Restaurant has the look and feel of a small diner. You place your order up front like mcdonalds or Burger King. The burgers are fresh ground and taste great. Service was very fast, important if you have places to... More

Burgers were great! But if you're from the U.S. hoping to get Ranch dressing with your fries, they will give you something that tastes like Roquefort dressing and insist that it's Ranch. But that's a nit. The burgers, fries, and shakes are a '10' here- as good as the Fatburger food in Los Angeles.
