Really awesome drive-in atmosphere, though there is limited seating inside (with an old jukebox too). The onion rings are incredibly good, and the tuna/lobster rolls are to die for! Lots of amazing frappes as well. A Brunswick institution - if you are there in the summer Fat Boy's is a must-go!

I am a local and Fat Boy's Drive In is one of my favorite take-out places in the midcoast Maine area. Like all places, there are some items that are better than others. I do not care for their milkshakes - they are not homemade, they come out of a shake machine (or at least taste it). I think their... More

We've been going to Fat Boy since I was little. I don't know that I've EVER changed my order(a creature of habit, I know): Whopper Burger basket, and a black raspberry frappe. Why would you mess with something so perfect? My grandmother always gets the Canadian Bacon BLT and a soda. Great service, always - no matter how packed the... More

For all the years we have been coming to Maine, we never spent any time in Brunswick. A friend told us about Fat Boy Drive In and we tried it. So far we have been back 4 times in a month! They have the best fried haddock sandwiches and fried green beans. The servers are very efficient and friendly. Just... More

A nice fun drive-in atmosphere with affordable prices. Unfortunately, the food just isn't that good. My sandwich, fries and milkshake were bland - they just didn't have much flavor. In addition, the milkshake was watery. I will not eat there again.

Aside from the car hop nostalgia (this is the real deal) the food is quite good and reasonably priced. Kids loved the burgers frappes and fries. My clams were very good as was my wife's crabcake sandwich. Dollar for dollar this was the best value meal I have ever had in Maine. By the way, you don't have to eat... More

This is fantastic for what it is. An old time drive-in burger joint at minimal cost. The burgers are small so don't go expecting a two-hander that oozes hamburger goodness. My kids liked them and that was good enough. Milkshakes were delicious, onion rings and fried green beans rocked!

This is a real nostalgic treat. You drive up and the waitress comes to your car. The building is straight from the 50's (not a redo!). The service is fast and the food is really good. I had a haddock sandwich and fried green beans that were soooooo good! The frappe's are tasty as well. This is NOT health food... More

We found Fat Boy Drive-In in a Maine tourism book and decided to try it. It was really nice! We stayed in our car and the car hop came out right away and gave us menus (the locals don't need them!) We decided on a Whoperburger, a 2 oz. Cheeseburger, an order of the Battered Green Bean Fries and 2... More

We just happened to be driving by and noticed all the cars here and decided it must be good. And it was. Like an old-fashioned drive in where they come out and wait on you and then bring the meal out on a tray which hangs on your window. Loved it. Also, they had the cheapest lobster rolls we encountered... More
