Even if you don't care about live music and a festive bar atmosphere, it's still worth the trip just for the fabulous burgers and other food offerings. I'm so expecting a burger-lookalike when I order one at a drinking establishment that it's memorable to receive a big, juicy, tasty quarter-pound of real beef burger! Plus, the shrimp and the other... More

We ate here on a Thursday night and it wS still busy so that has to tell you something. Both of us ordered the burger and basket of fries with beer. Burgers are very very good, fries skinny kind, nothing special but the beer is cold and atmosphere great. No food to go here as the money is made off... More

They put a permanent tent in back for smoking but let everyone wander around. The whole place is horribly smoky and stinks. This place is really overrated, now I know not to bother.

The food was cheap and good but I did not like the atmosphere. You have to wait on a long line to order and wait for your number to be displayed but you can't see the screens from every table so it is difficult to know when your order is ready.

Fast Eddies had great no frills food. Hamburgers, kabobs, boiled shrimp, etc. Simple food for cheap prices. No you can't carry out any food and yes, you have to be over 21 to get in but if you go on the weekend you might just hear a great band playing! When the weather is nice, you will see motorcycles parked... More

3 negatives- 1. over 21 only 2. you cannot take it with you 3. CASH ONLY. We loved it though! It is a building with a lot of additions and a big open area in the middle. Lots of old signs and fun items on the walls. Speakers in every room. Free pop corn. The beer was cheap and served... More

What a fun place to go! Good food, drinks, and people watching!! The menu is limited, but what they serve, they do it well! Great burgers and fries and the peel and eat shrimp is fresh. Prices cannot be beat. The service is excellent as well. If you have never been to Fast Eddie's, it is a must!!

Drinks are cold and food is very good and inexpensive. I wish their menu was a little more varied, but what they do, they do well. No kids, no carry outs... very casual atmosphere. Everyone will feel welcome from 21 year olds celebrating their birthday to 80+ year olds doing the same.
