Ridiculously good!

Stopped in for a sandwich before heading out of town. Holy smoke! Chef Wally knows what is up. Started off with the best jalapeno bacon potato soup I have ever had. Followed it up with "the big chief" sandwich. Again, fresh and fantastic. You can't fake this kind of fresh. I will definitely be... read more

To say this sandwich shop is the best would be an understatement. No other can compare to the taste, quality, amount and service. I can never go to any other sandwich shop again. I will always be a loyal customer to a staff that is very friendly, fast and tanlented led by the owner. Besides the sandwiches you must try... More

I have been to Fat Guy Fresh Deli a few times and have always been impressed with anything I have ordered from their menu. Whether it was the thick "Trevor Melt" with its delicious Au Jus and Pesto Mayo or the absolute behemoth of a meat-lover's sandwich in "The Viking." Not only do you receive one of the best sandwiches... More

I heard about Fat Guy's 8 days ago. Monday I was here, and Wednesday, and Friday, and now Saturday. I'm hooked. I've been whining about the sandwich pretenders here in the valley for 30 years. Not anymore. Wally is a CIA trained chef and he puts all that knowledge to good use. I just had a bowl of something 'mater-red... More

Good sandwiches both time I went, so that's not an issue. They seem to have a good rapport with regular customers, but it appears that if you're not a regular you just don't matter. No problem, I just won't try to buy my way into that inner circle. First time I went it was a little busy, but they forgot... More

All I can say is that I wish there was a Fat Guys in Las Vegas! My family and I stopped at Fat Guys while we were on vacation and I can't stop thinking about the food! By far the best sandwiches we have ever had! But what got me where the soups! You can tell that they are homemade... More

Me and my girlfriend shared an italian sub with potato salad. The very nice employees split the sandwich and salad to two plates. It was warmed but not crusty. Just moist and sloppy enough. Great customer service.

Very good food and hospitality. The owner was very nice and gave me a bowl of fresh calm chowder to try! He was very personable and very friendly towards my kids. I would definitely recommend this deli.
