Have to try it!

The best hamburgers and French fries! And the chili dogs were great! Cheese steaks are greasy though.

First visited for the soft serve ice cream (sort of a tradition at the beach for us) which is still a favorite, but the crab cake sandwich is my favorite lunch on the island! A family recipe with little discernible filler, served simply on a hamburger bun with lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise, it's delicious and such a treat! Friendly service,... More

We first went there for ice cream (which was delicious), but then decided to try the food for dinner the next day. Cheeseburgers were great and others said the chili dogs were good as well.

We had a pineapple shake and a peanut butter shake. Both were wonderful. Everyone must have liked it as there is always a bit of a line.

We never miss a trip to Fat Boyz. The ice cream is wonderful (especially the soft serve) and they have really great food too. The hamburgers are huge, juicy and well worth the trip (and calories :-)).

We love going here for ice cream. They always have a wide variety of choices. The crowds are worth the wait.

The burgers are hand patted & good. They use a lot of chocolate in the milk shake, yum. However, $24 for 2 burgers & 2 shakes is rather high.

Walked over from our motel to get some ice cream. Had to wait in a short line. Service was quick. I ordered a hot fudge sunday and my husband got a large ice cream cone. We got more than we expected. Prices in line with others.

We went at a little after 9pm and it was still crowded, but the line went quickly. Both of us got salted chocolate caramel ice cream--yum! The only thing I found a little strange was the cut glass that is in the flower beds. It's gorgeous, but there is a sign asking not to touch it (it is sharp glass,... More

At peak season in the summer you should post that the grill closes at 900. That was just poor service
