Yummm!!

My husband and kids have been here several times during yearly trips for a golf outing, but it was my first time. The wings were delicious as was the pulled pork. Fun, lively atmosphere on a Thursday night!!!

Took my family, 14 of us, to both Primanti's and Fathead's. Primanti's off Smallman is iconic must do but when I want a great sandwich or burgher (sp) I go to Fathead's. The Fathead sandwich is called that because its the size of you head. Menu is diverse and exceptional. East Carson Street is a great location, the service is... More

My favorite is the pierogi burger (just what it sounds like, dough pocket filled will potato on top of your burger). Plus, there is a wide selection of beers and if... More

If you're looking for good, greasy food that could potentially give you a heart attack the second it enters your mouth, this place is for you! Great brews and great burgers. Every time my boyfriend gets off a diet, or is having one last hoorah before going back on one, Fat Head's is our place of choice.
