you can't beat the food!

If you are looking for some fantastic peel and eat shrimp, juicy home cooked style burgers and great kabobs, head for a lunch at Fast Eddies. Very cheap and super delicious food, although it's a limited menu. Go early to get a table, there isn't carry out. You must be 21 to eat here, as it's a bar... read more

I grew up in Alton so I've been to Fast Eddies more than I can count. If you are looking for cheap food and a cold beer this is the place to go. They have plenty of room for everyone and there are multiple bands playing all weekend.

This is a bar - you have to be over 21. The place is packed all summer long. Arrive early or plan to wait in line awhile! This is a cafeteria style set up. You wait in line, arrive at the cooked shrimp case, order your share of yummy peel and eat shrimp, walk to the next station and order... More

I've ate here on multiple occasions. Bring cash they don't accept cards. 21 & over only. Service is always GREAT. I suggest the $1.99 Fat Eddie Burger or the $0.39 peel & eat shrimp.

We decided to pay a visit based on a local friend's recommendation. This place has a cool, dive bar feel and simplistic way of doing things. You cannot beat the simple menu and superb pricing. You are required to buy a drink, even if it's only water, which I found a little odd, but if that's what it takes to... More

Ok, so I'm one of the few people that just don't get the popularity of this place. I end up having to go about once a year b/c all of our friends just love it and every time I think to myself, "why?" Pros: 1. cheap, tasty food (albeit a VERY limited menu) Note: vegans, etc need to run away.... More

This is not a restaurant! It is a Bar&Grill. It does however have excellent food at a very low price. Peel-n-eat shrimp 29cents beef, pork and chicken kabobs. Excellent entertainment.
