Save room for the pie, you won't regret it

This is a nice, locally owned place. They have burgers, sandwiches, and some other dinner items (which I haven't tried). The owner/manager is friendly and always checks on you. My teenage son loves to try the Belly Buster, a 1 pound hamburger and full plate of fries. I like the New York... read more

Fat's has been our family place since it opened in 1982! Sue and her staff have become friends. The food is consistent and portions perfect, we never go away hungry! The menu offers a variety of interesting sandwiches and the dinners are good home style meals. Our favorites are the French Hen, New York Steak sandwich, Coconut Shrimp, Chicken Continental... More

While I actually haven't eaten here, I'm reviewing the catering portion of this restaurant. We have ordered desserts and cakes for private parties and all of them have been moist, tasty and FABULOUS! The carrot cake, cream cheese frosting cupcakes are to die for (not real sweet, decadent, and the carrots seem freshly grated). The pies are wonderful. I have... More

First time here was good experience. Service was very good. Had Monte Cristo with raspberry sauce, very tasty. Hubby had Cobb salad, it was very big. Menu reminded me of a good Ole diner menu...lots of fairly normal dishes. Plates are pretty big for the cheaper than normal prices. Sister in law had brownie sundae, holy mother that thing was...

If you like pie, then you will like Fat Albert's. When I first started going here their servings were huge, and there was no room left for their main attraction. They have scaled back their portions, not small by any means, and now you may be able to eat pie afterwards. If not, be sure to take a piece with... More

Fun restaurant with terrific meals. Best pies in town. I especially like sitting on the terrace in warm weather and stopping in for a quick drink to de-stress after work.

Fat Albert's has been a favorite for my family for years. We have had parties and celebrations at Fat Albert's because we knew the food would be wonderful and the atmosphere would help us have a nice party!

A newer waitress that didn't know the menu, or her job very well. The food was not good. The Monte Christo sandwich was soggy and yuck. A hard to find place that I wouldn't waste my time going to again.

We have been customers here for the past couple of years. Their pies are absolutely amazing ... don't miss their dutch apple. Great happy hour, friendly and attentive staff. One of Greeley's hidden restaurant gems! Only downside is that it's a bit small inside, and parking is sometimes a pain. Keep up the great work, Fat Albert's!!

My husband and I took my parents for a visit and they have now decided any time they come to visit we have to stop by Fat Alberts. The food is amazing, the service is good and the pie is to die for. Even though it seems like just a little hole in the wall kind of place, its one... More
