An eclectic atmosphere and some interesting burgers makes this a place that an old person like me will put up with the "student" clientele to enjoy. Love the sauce they serve with the fried green beans! I appreciate the wee burgers, a small burger with all the trimmings found on their big burgers. They deliver too!

Was passing through town and found some good online reviews for Fat Patties. The place lived up to the reviews, burger was great and had kind of a great flame-broiled taste that would trump Burger King any day of the week. Would certainly go back if I was in town again.

Fantastic food. The french fries was beyond compare as well as the bacon cheeseburger. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

We had been on a road trip for weeks and didn't feel like going out. The hotel clerk at the Hampton Inn recommended Fat Patties for delivery and we were very pleased. We ordered great big salads (one with a burger patty) and there was no service charge, and, it was delivered within 20 minutes! :)

Greasy burgers, but they are fresh, good meat & bread. Fries are O.K. Good beef brisket. Reasonably clean. Good prices on alcoholic beverages.

I do not understand the fascination with this place other than people who are writing the reviews are attempting to curry favor with the owner who is a member of the Carbondale City Council. I ate there twice and will not eat there again. The burgers are dry and at best mediocre. The fries are typically cold. The staff is... More

Took my son and his girl friend to Fat Patties when I went to visit them in C-dale. I was going to get them a steak, but most of the reviews about the steakhouses in town were blah! I had the Bucky Dome burger with an extra pattie because I was starving. The regular Bucky has a burger, topped with... More

This place is fantastic! It's a great place to get good fat burgers with some beer, and some fries! This is definitely my favorite burger place in town! You should certainly give it a try!

Although I eat meat, I especially love their veggie burger which is homemade and not something from a box. Try the Veggie burger salad too, you won't be disappointed.

I like their patties. Although it is very very very smokey in the place. I went while pregnant and I couldn't breath in the place. Just felt like it was too much and burned my eyes. Its patties you can make at home with the same ingredients. Nothing really special. In the Northeast we make our patties sooo good. The... More
