Would you like to pay a lot of money for being treated like crap? Well, then Fatboys is your place! Even though the owner is American, he brought nothing over from his customer-focused culture. He does Belgium and three times over. In how many places will you be shouted at by a waitress and when you complain about this, both... More

I went there to watch a game of my favorite football team while in Brussels for business. I had few beers and some food that was honestly nice, even though the selection is kind of poor, tex-mex style with little variety. Anyway the outdoor seating area is wide but not well served.

I went there couple of times but only yesterday I tried their Burgers. They are definitely delicious, fair portion of food, great fries, and simply a nice place to have a meal if not super crowded! I strongly recommend it, i went for BBQ cheddar Burger, it was great choice. The service was very friendly, prices are a bit high... More

...with the non-sports greasy food like French fries and huge burgers... Not my kind of place, but a decent outdoor seating area.

Reviewed this restaurant previously. Commented that the food is excellent but the service minimal at best. We tried to eat here again but were totally ignored by the wait staff. We sat at our table for 10 minutes with nary an acknowledgment from the waitress, even when she was at the next table. Left and went to another establishment. Won't... More

The best sports bar that I have come across in the EU district. Plenty of different beers (local and international), and plenty of LCD screens to watch sports from around the world. They have subscriptions to the major worldwide sports & satellite channels, so they can get just about any event from around the world (and will generally put it... More

We just hopped in for a beer and to watch football on Sat afternoon. We were very pleases because we were put in a separate room so they could put the sound on without disturbing others. Excellent service! Beers are reasonable priced.

Stopped in as I was staying at a hotel nearby. Staff was friendly and spoke English. Food was average, I think most of their patrons are probably not lured in for the food, it's just in a great location and easy to walk to. Was very crowded for happy hour but later at night I was only one of the... More

My friend's purse was stolen from right under her legs when we were sitting outside. I went in to inquire if this thing happens a lot (it happened the previous two days in a row in their words). Staff didn't care on any level: they didn't even come out, check if everyone is ok, offer help in finding a police... More

But why?? Nobody in Brussels wishes they were American! Why try? Belgium has better beer and better food... but if you want to imitate American bar food, you can do better. Bad balance to the burger meat. Buns not substantial enough. Cheese not melted properly. Good fries, though.. of course! It's Belgium, after all! Pretentious EU Parliament crowd... puhleez! Get...
