Description: Fatty's is a fun beachy shop that has Ice Cream, Hotdogs, and Kayak Tours; yep, Ice cream and Kayaks. We know its a crazy combo but being that we are located where we are, we couldn't not give Kayak Tours! The Hotdogs are crazy on purpose. We do all beef dogs with Martins Potato bread buns and load everything from hot Cheetos and Sriracha sauce, to hash browns and fried eggs on them for maximum delicious madness. We are locally owned and operated and we appreciate everyone for supporting locals! A big thank you to everyone who comes out!

Fatty's? Really? Really! Don't be put off by the name, it's all in good fun and you'll love the variety of Hershey's ice cream they offer! Pick up their fun tee-shirt for the ice cream "nut" on your Christmas list, and stick your head through the wooden seagull cut-out for a memorable photo! Fatty's is just plain fun!

Great burgers, friendly service. Greeted by the owners & their sweet daughter. On our way up the cape enjoyed a good lunch.

The only decent experience of our trip (besides the beach). Not much going on in Buxton - but if you're in the southern part of the OBX, visit this place!

We decided to stop in while we were driving back from Hatteras Light House. The ice cream was excellent, the service size will surprise you. What you think is a small isn't close to how much is piled into a small cup.

After dinner most nights, would walk across the street for some wonderful, creamy, delicious ice cream. Lunch for hot dogs was a good idea for us too. Fast, friendly. clean.

Fatty's Treats and Tours is so much more than a place to eat something yummy. The owner, Jeff, took us on a guided kayak tour on the sound side of the island. When Jeff talks about local history, he sounds like he was there., and he also was very informative on local environmental issues. IYou might say he has the... More

We stopped at Fatty's in the middle of the afternoon. It was the owner behind the counter serving us. It was good conversation and wonderful ice cream. Thanks Fatty's!

We stopped here for dinner while on the island. We had a "fat dog" which was a hot dog with macaroni & cheese on it as well as bbq sauce. It was a good combo. We also had some of their Hershey's ice cream, I had the banana pudding which is a flavor you dont see everywhere. It was quite... More
