Old fashioned Drive In. Waitresses come out to your car. Food tray on your car window. Good fast food. Old fashioned frappes, shakes and hamburgers. Prices good

We stopped here on a brief visit to Brunswick, and read about the Drive In that has remained the same for many years....very interesting!! It is across from the old airfield at the Naval Air Station Brunswick, and you can miss it if you are not looking. The establishment has a few seats inside, but most are served from their... More

While on a family vacation from Wisconsin, we went past this drive in and it brought back memories from my childhood. We noticed the place was packed like a car lot. We enjoyed the food, especially the homemade onion rings. Staff was pleasant and we enjoyed our food within no time. Great little drive-in

Fat Boy's consistently has good food for a fair price. Where else can you get two lobster rolls, fries and onion rings for a little more than $20? Be sure you bring cash because they don't accept credit cards, and watch out for the seagulls!

Ate inside on this windy day, facing a Blue Angels sticker, ATM, Tee Shirt display, and lots of fun graphics done over the last 40 years. By the way, the prices may not be from the 60's, but the values are unbelieveable. Questing the best lobster role on the Mid Coast, Fat Boy's is modest in size: regular hot dog... More

Old fashioned drive in. Turn your lights on for service and they bring your food on the little tray that sits on the window. They have a few booths for two inside, so you basically have to eat in your car which is fun I guess once in a while. Lobster rolls are small (that's why they are only $6)... More

It's ok. But $45 for burgers, fries and two shakes for three people is ridiculous. Five Guys would have been less than half as much though without the shakes.

If you're in the Maine mid-coast, nothing beats a trip to Fat Boy's drive in in Brunswick. Great Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, fries, onion-rings, their fabulous BLTs and absolutely to die for frappes bring you back to a time when food was king and nutrition was an after-thought! Wonderful service and great prices make this a "must do" summer rendevouz.

And not by Stravinsky but Fat Boy! My wife suggested we drop in for some fried clams - some great wrife, huh?! - and indeed we did. On Mother's Day no less and no kidding: these are some of the best fried clams this fried-clam-loving boy has ever had (although I've been coming here for close to 16 years!!!) as... More

Like drive in movies I love restaurants, and I always think of the 1950s when I go to a drive-in restaurant. I go to this classic drive in for a good lobster roll with a side of fries.
