Fatheads is a South Side institution. There are multiple beers to pick from, great sandwiches. It does to be crowded with a wait but it is worth it.

Primanti's is "almost famous" but Fat Head's is amazing! Some of the craziest sandwiches you could ever think of that hold true to Pittsburgh cuisine, too. The beer selection is excellent as well whether you sample the house brewed Head Hunter IPA or one of the excellent selections from other breweries (local and far away) they have on draft. It...

Large selection of different styles and really great atmosphere. Not the cheapest place in town but definitely one of the greatest.

If you enjoy wings, you'll love FatHeads! The grilled wings with original sauce are the best!! They have over 30 different rotatings beers on tap. There are always a couple seasonal beers and a few ciders as well. The sandwiches are good and huge. They come with homemade chips. This is our go to spot after A home Steelers game.

Everytime I have eaten here the food is amazing. The wait staff are knowlegable and are always accomadating. My husband & I usually share as the sandwiches are massive. Prices are great value and if you are visiting this place is a must visit.

This place is fantastic for a casual meal. Their wing sauces they have are great especially the Spicy Parmesan sauce! They are pretty particular about subbing out their fries for chips and they are not the best with customer service either. Still it is a great place to go.

Great craft beer selection and great artery clogging slap your fat belly food. I am a fan of the spicy onion rings...ridiculous hot. The bar tender warned me...they made me sweat. We have been there multiple times. It is hard to get a table from time to time and the service is that of a typical dive bar, don't go... More

In Pittsburg for the day and wanted to try some local flavor. This saloon from the south side on East Carson fit the bill. We are from Ohio and Fat Head's now has branches in the Cleveland area so it seemed right. The area was nice and the restaurant was nicely done inside. But of course it is about the... More

If you are looking for pub style eats this place is the best. Italian potato skins or spicy parmesan wings are a must as an app. I love the "Kelsey burger" with the pierogi on top. Price is very reasonable for the quality of food. Discovered some great beers at this place too! Although stay away from their star beer... More

If you ever go by a restaurant on a Saturday Night and they are not busy or don't have a line waiting to get in then you should question why. We walked by several restaurants on the Southside of Pittsburgh that we could have ate at that didn't have lines or crowds but when we got to Fatheads Saloon there... More
