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.

Bloody brilliant fries. Skip the ketcup and dip them in the freakin' fantastic chipotle mayo. Accompany it with a insanely delicious Lick Creek beef burger and post a picture to Facebook to make all your friends jealous.

Fat patties is the place to go for a burger. The staff and atmosphere are great here and better than going to some of the cheap college joints on the strip in Carbondale. The buckydome sandwhich is a beast if you want something big.
