Hype. Well deserved.

I had heard many good things about this place. I have had their brews at other places and like them very much. First time I had eaten here. Large menu featuring a lot of items. Usually, I don't like a large menu, but in this case it's fine. Everything looked and sounded good. I wanted 2 or 3... read more

I discovered Fatheads when I was dating my husband. He and his friends always went for wing night on Monday nights. That became our Monday night date spot. The wings are large and the sauces are delicious. I love the Garlic Parmesan and the Honey BBQ. My husband loves ALL the hot wings but his favorite is the Carribean Killers!... More

A bar / restaurant with decent pub food and a great selection of beer. They have highly rated IPA's and a great selection of seasonal beers they brew. I'm kind of a beer snob and they have never let me down.

Food awesome, craft beer out of this world, pricing was great, and parking right across the street was only $1 or so!!!! Fat Heads Beer is amazing in addition to the vast selection of other craft beers!

Food & Beer always outstanding. Some of the best wings and burgers in Pittsburgh. Fries ok but many times not particularly fresh or hot. Bar service hit or miss depending on who is working. Was there on Sunday - can't understand why bartenders in craft beer bars have attitudes about customers trying samples. Spent over $80 - you would think... More

If you like large salads and sandwiches, this is the place for you!! The steak salad is one of the best in the city; there are so many choices for sandwiches you will need 10 minutes just to read the menu!! Most are unique to Pittsburgh so you have to read before you eat!

I didn't rate this as a best meal because it is a sandwich shop. But it is not any sandwich shop it is one of the best you will ever go to. My wife and I have gone thru the "headwich" menu twice and are working on the third go around. These sandwiches are great and we have never had... More

the atmosphere is casual and fun- partially open air in summer. The sandwiches are filling and delicious. The beer might be the best in the burgh.

When you eat at Fat Head's expect a serving large enough for a family of four. It's way too much and just okay.
