Decided to stop off at Fat Boys for a cold beer and a spot of lunch having had this place recommended. Food was lovely and it came out hot which has not been the case in a lot of restaurants here in Puerto Vallarta, so a nice bonus.

Went to Fat Bob's on a recommendation and so glad we did. We could not fault the service and the food at all well done Sharkie and the rest of the staff. We had a fabulous time and a great setting on the beach. It made the last night of our holiday extra special. Won't ever forget it and will... More

Beers are cheap, margaritas and food a little pricey. Had four drinks an appetiser and food cost $100. Be wary of the vendors selling here, a couple had their wallet stolen while distracted. Probably would not return.

Best food we had in Bucerias. Wait...best food we had in the Puerto Vallarta area. The hamburgers and fries were fantastic! The drinks were great and the breeze blowing through the place off of the beach was refreshing. Our waiter George was funning and entertaining. If you go to the Bucerias square or market, you need to eat or drink... More

Ok... so we had high hopes. Then the ceviche came and we were worried for the rest of the meal. The margaritas were pretty awful and we got even more worried. The staff kept trying to upsell us to the "higher end" combination meals, but we stuck to the shrimp tacos and hoped... Because of the upsell, we were worried... More

Went here for lunch the food is amazing!! The prawns were jumbo!!! They show you the catch of the day before you stat off and then you choose whatever you like. We definitely picked to much but it was all so delicious! The only downfall would be the people selling stuff on the beach will hound you if you chose... More

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 kept... More

The waitress was very helpful and nice - she had been there for 8 years! Great menu, great live entertainment and... More
