First of all the portions are huge. The food is an American Tex/Mex mix with a twist. All our meals were excellent. The staff were really helpful without being pushy. We had to queue but it wasn't for too long and we were glad we did. By no means "up market" but the name sort of gives that away. Would... More

Fat Sam's burgers are amazing. The prices aren't cheap but they are worth every penny as they are succulent cooked to perfection, crammed with delicious extras ( I had bacon and cheese) and absolutely huge. We wanted to order sides and desserts but were simply too full! The staff were very friendly and attentive and the 20 minute wait only... More

Definitely not cheap compared to other Santa Ponsa meals and there's always a queue for a table but having been a few years back then returning this year it definitely is a lot nicer than it used to be. As our group of 6 was a little worse for wear and struggling to eat our food the helpful staff even... More

If you like burgers, this is the place for you! Portions are massive (too big really) and there's lots of choice. The veggie burger with goats cheese was amazing and the rest of the family enjoyed their burgers and chicken. Excellent service. Get there early though as there's often a wait peak time.

Lovely meal here, huge portions, wonderful burgers, really juicy and tasty. Was busy when we arrived but a 5 min wait for a table was worth it. Nice location, good service and big, juicy, beefy burgers, would recommend.

Not my first visit to "Fat Sam's" definitely won't be my last. The restaurant opens at 6pm, has a fantastic view of the beach in Santa Ponca, fast efficient service, the food is cooked to order so don't expect to eat quickly but go into training for it as it's quite a plateful, well cooked and very tasty, friendly staff...

Having read the reviews wanted to try something outside the hotel for one night and the while I can not complain about the value, the waiting time was very unreasonable especially when we were told that we could have a table in 10 minutes and had to wait for over 25 minutes. I am not sure if they take reservations... More
