We stopped in here after walking around Bucerias and wanting a cold beverage or two. The servers were fantastic and friendly plus the beer cheep. We also decided to have some food and we can't stop thinking about the delicious Guacamole. Watching the other food come out of the kitchen everything looked great. Also, you can use Canadian dollars to... More

We've eaten at this restaurant every time we visited Bucerias for the last 5 years. The food is good, but it is my son's love of their guacamole that ensures our return. We've always found the staff to be very friendly and they take good care of us when we stop in. We'll be back.

The service was great, food was delicious and the view was nice. We decided to order a few bottles of water, 3 non alcoholic... More

went to fat boys for the all you can eat steak, it was great. All the steak you can eat , baked potato and salad bar. Very reasonable cost. The drinks were reasonable too. Plan to go back for the all you can eat seafood as we heard it was good too.

The portions are HUGE!.. the food is to die for.. wonderful. Our second trip we took a wonderful couple from USA who we had net,... More

My wife and I stayed in Puerto Vallarta for 6 nights in June of 2014. We happened upon Fat Boy Seafood after we met a very nice couple from Scotland. They had gone there for lunch a day prior. We went here on a Tuesday night around 8:00pm. We had the restaurant to ourselves as the sun was setting. The... More

I have had the shrimp salad at Fat Boys twice in the last few weeks. Nothing better than this meal and an ice cold beer. Beach seating under a palapa is the best.

The shrimp were plentiful in our quesadillas. Time share guy always hanging out but we've learned just say"no thanks" Same goes as the vendors constantly on the beach.

My husband and I stopped at Fatboys for a Pacifico after a really long walk down the beach. We didn't bring enough money to have anything to eat but asked to look at the menu anyway. We decided to come back the day before we flew home to have a nice lobster lunch. Gabrielle the manager was there and sat... More
