Fat Patties is a Hand Crafted American Burger Joint. We offer our creative burger concoctions with the option of 5 different patties: Grass Feed Beef, ½ n 1/2(Ground Beef and Ground Bacon), Wild American Shrimp, Turkey, or a Vegetarian Black Bean Pattie served on our homemade buttery buns. Our Brats are simmered in American Ale and topped with the same extravagant toppings as our Burgers. We also make our own Ice Cream with unique flavors like Bacon Maple, White Chocolate Cayenne as well as traditional flavors. We can’t wait for you to try it!

We have visited Fat Patties many times, and never had a problem during the lunch hour. Today, however, we waited one whole hour for our food (12-1PM) before we asked about it. Our server, Lindsay, said it had come up, and was in the window... yes it was, because it was not very warm when we finally got our order...4... More

Choices for burgers abound. Tried the black bean burger was slightly disappointed. Was dry. Good fries. Pleasant wait staff.

Everyone raves about this place but my family does not eat there when three of us tried it twice and was not happy with the food. It's LOUD and crowded. The veggie burger was too dry. The beef burger tasted of low quality meat. It was tough and chewy. The metal plates absorb all the heat leaving the food luke... More

This was a fun family place, nothing fancy, with an amazing burger menu - choice of maybe 6 or 7 types of meat and every conceivable topping combination. Unfortunately, my burger, which I ordered medium, was terribly overcooked so I didn't enjoy it as much as I had hoped. The fries were inconsistent - first one was cold, the next... More

The endless choice of ingredients to custom make your burger is sure to satisfy any burger lover. Of course they have salads and other entrees but known for burgers. The restaurant is somewhat small so you might have to wait for a table.

Went there with a group of friends on a Sunday afternoon. The appetizers were bogo so good for the $ and they were amazing. Fry stack and deviled shrimp were both amazing! The burgers were cooked perfect and incredibly diverse! Definitely a great place to visit to get your burger fix!

Mind you, after the antics of some of his troops, Spouse is more apt to have indigestion than pleasant dreams, but still, Fat Patties does its best to slake the more mundane pangs of daily desires. Translation: good eats and put in your order for raspberry sorbet before the table next to you grabs the last of it. The burgers... More

We love Fat Patties!!! Juicy, perfectly cooked burgers. You must try the Pimento Cheese burger or the BBQ burger. Fries were delish especially the ones with cheese and gravy. On your way out try the ice cream. The Toasted Marshmallow is the best!!!!

Pick your favorite meat or vegetarian option and have a burger just how you want it. Reasonable prices, too.
