The food is awesome and the prices can't be beat. There are 2 sections to the restaurant. The inside has a huge bar and table seating. The outside is open air setup. Smoking is allowed. Nice bar and plenty of table seating. They also have live music Thursday , Friday and Saturday. Usually pretty good local bands playing verity of... More

It has a great atmosphere, a live band, and really inexpensive prices on food from $1 burgers to .29 cent shrimp and the food is great.

I go to Fast Eddies all the time and have never had a complaint. But today has made me second guess ever going there again. The rudeness of the employees was ridiculous. I was in line for food for 10 seconds when they were very rude and forced me to order before the cashier was done taking the persons order... More

Went to Fast Eddie's last night and while it was a zoo, it was fantastic. The food is great, inexpensive, and the beer/drinks are great. This place is MASSIVE and has a very wide mix of people. I will definitely be back...well worth a visit for a casual great time.

1000 people, cheap great finger foods, and coldest beer! Crowded. Mayhem. Overwhelming. Food line is long. 20 minutes. Then it all makes sense. $6 for great food. No silverware. All hand food. Waitresses serve the beer. $4 for pint of blue moon. $3.50 for mic ultra. 1000 people having a good time. We had fun.

Delicious 1/2 pound hamburgers made from scratch and charbroiled for $2.99. And that was the most expensive food on the 6 item menu. A true roadhouse. Plenty of room and plenty of vintage motor-things and advertisements hung up to see. Seemed like a throwback to an earlier time. Very pleasant people working and eating there. Give it a try. If...

I absolutely love their chick on a stick and big elwood. Their french fries are always crispy and hot. This place is always busy so you could have a bit of a wait. The waitresses are very good and quick to get your drinks and keep them filled. This is a great place to people watch too.

We went to Alton area for an overnight stay and our first stop was fast eddies. It was recommended by a friend. Excellent food, great drink service, and food was super cheap, the drinks are little pricey, but still a great deal! Had the 99 cent burger (best I have ever had....nothing like a McDonalds dollar menu burger), fries were... More

If you like burgers or grilled chicken, and you like inexpensive, plus you don't mind a wait and are an inveterate people watcher.....you have to find Fast Eddies. On Broadway, a couple of miles south of the Clark bridge, my wife and I spent the day looking at the Trumpeter Swans, and trying to find the famed Bald Eagles of... More

We went there with a group and had a great time. We ordered a bunch of different things and shared so everyone got to try everything. My favorites were the hamburger and the steak k-bobs.
