We ventured here to get away from our resort. The food was amazing. Our table was right on the beach looking out at the water. The jumbo shrimp were cooked perfectly. I tasted my boyfriend's ribeye - which might be one of the best steaks I've ever had ANYWHERE. Juicy, Tender, cooked perfectly. And delicious margaritas. Go here!!! It's worth... More

We were a little tired and thirsty after checking out the flea market in Bucerias and noticed a restaurant set up right on the beach. Decided to head there for a quick drink but ended up staying for lunch. We were so glad we did! The food was excellent and quite reasonable. We had a fajita plate that was supposedly... More

I have never found any Ceviche better than Fat Boys. It is #1 Always! I'd like to try the other items on the menu (it's extensive) but I always get the Bacon Wrapped Shrimp (they are HUGE!) as I can't find any like it here in the States. Maybe if we lived there I'd have more time to try other... More

We were wanting a restaurant that served Coconut shrimp. We read some other reviews and decided this would be our option. The guacamole was the best we had in Bucerias and the shrimp was delicious..we asked for a small portion and it was big! Right on the beach with entertainment..they served a complimentary Kahlua ....would definitely go back. The only... More

What a great place to stop and have a bite to eat. I love that we got to sit on the beach. The food was good...I had shrimp tacos. Good flavor but wish they would have taken the vein out of the shrimp. Good tunes were sang by all! I'm guessing this is totally a public beach as the sellers... More

I have been to Fat Boys several times over the last few months, and never have I had a bad experience, from Hamburgers to Shrimps it's all very good. Margaritas are excellent and made just the way you ask them to be made. One always feels so welcomed by all the waiters and owners, something that not always happens in... More

Our trip to Bucerias was so much fun. We stopped at Fat Boys for a few beers... and 12 buckets later we regretfully had to leave, LOL. We were a party of 8 and they were so great. Our server almost cried when we tipped him. He came to shake our hands and said "you really made my day" One... More

Right on the beach and very close to shopping, Lots of sea food and a cold beverage always hits the spot after a hard day of shopping! You can listen to live music as well.
