Come for Cold Beer, Stay for the Food!

I got tired of the shopping so I told my wife I wanted a beer while she shopped and then we had lunch at Fat Boy. Good value with good size portions. I wanted to take the guacamole home with me as it was outstanding. Could have done without the peddlers coming by every 30 seconds but our waiter... read more

we Stopped at the Fat Boy for lunch on Easter Sunday. It was very busy, in the restaurant and on the beach but Easter is a huge holiday in that part of Mexico so it was to be expected. The waitress was very helpful and nice - she had been there for 8 years! Great menu, great live entertainment and... More

At first it looks like a little hovel on the beach. It is actually quite quaint and a lot of fun!! Prices were average. They usually have some one playing a guitar and singing. We just had drinks, salsa, guacamole & chips. But, they were very tasty and generous. Service was very good but not that personable. On the back... More

Hello! This is our second time coming to this restaurant. Last year we loved it!! This year was just ok for me. We came here to celebrate my brother n laws birthday so we still had a good time. However I don't mind the horses running up and down the beach maybe twice but not 10 times and then one... More

If looks are everything, then you pass by an excellent eating establishment. Get what they specialize in....killer giant shrimp, nachos and whatever drink you want at this beach front bar. Giant shrimp, bacon, cheese, beer....just a minute I have to loosen my belt.

Great food, super service and friendly staff.. Not to mention the very tasty margarita. Also being on the beach watching the beautiful sunsets is always a plus .

Took a bus from Punta de Mita to Bucerias. It cost 30 pesos. Walked around the flee market and came upon Fat boys. Nice little place to eat and rest with a wonderful view but was bothered by the beach vendors every three minutes as we sat on the beach. Was asked for more money when we paid our bill.... More

The location on the beachfront is good, and service is attentive,but the constant harrassment by beach vendors was what really ruined our meal. We had already been to the market and were pretty well shopped out, but we couldn't enjoy conversation or our meal without someone trying to sell us something. Also, what they considered entertainment was an older gentleman... More

I have been to this restaurant several times. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's not so good. My last two visits have been terrible. Most recently, I had family visiting from the states so we met some friends here. Of 8 people, except for the three of us who ordered the red snapper, noone else enjoyed their meal. In fact,...
