Consistent and that's a good thing

I know that every time we come here we will get good food. The burgers are great and so is everything else.

It's a tradition to visit Fat Boys every summer. All of our friends from California wish they could visit. It's such a nostalgic, drive in diner that I have been patronizing sine I was a kid. Now it's my children's favorite, too!!

I had "Southern Fried Chicken" basket, potato skins and a small root beer. My wife had a lobster roll and onion rings. I needed to wait for the chicken and potatoes to cool off. The chicken basket included a small roll and French Fries. The chicken was very good. It remained me of the fried chicken I eat growing up.... More

Took the grandkids here to show them a taste of the "old days". They loved it , so did my wife and I. Food was good, prices good and service was wonderful. We highly recommend a visit.

I get that its somewhat of a Brunswick Institution, but beside the drive In novelty, the food is quite mediocre. Really nothing to talk about. The BLT was bland, the fries greasy and the chicken nuggets were nothing special. The frappes were the highlight, but I'm sure you could do just as well elsewhere. Overall, I'd say skip it.

Our trips to Maine always include at least one visit to Fat Boys. The food is tasty and the prices are reasonable. We always eat inside even though it's more of a drive-in, car hop type of place circa the 1950's. Nothing fancy - nothing special - just good food and a terrific old-time ambience.

Wonderful retro drive-in. Lobster roll was great and generous in its allotment of lobster. Burgers looked good to. You can eat in or have old-fashion car-hop service

Good place to get some good food old fashion drive in and park kinda way. By far a better tasting meal then those fast food places. Always a must visit when visiting from over seas.

I only really go once a year, as i try and stay away from greasy food, but you can't help but want to get in an annual trip to Fat Boys where you can have some tasty food at a decent price and get some throwback Americana. if you are coming into town you should make a point to stop... More

Grew up going here. Can't go wrong! Cheap and delicious, blast from the past. I suggest the lobster roll, or fried scallop meal, with cole slaw and a frappe!
