A seafood platter (shrimp, prawns, and a couple of lobster etc. )was $5.00 The second time was in... More

We had a table for 8 (2 families of 4) on the beach during our recent visit to Bucerias when staying in Nuevo Vallarta. It was a $170peso taxi ride per car each way to the town from the Riu Jalisco Resort. We walked around the market and then rested our feet at our table on the beach table for... More

We had been staying at one of the nearby Riu's and had decided to go give it a try as it was recommended to us. We got the 1 free round of drinks chat like everyone else, we ordered nachos to share which were massive!!! Very tasty too! 4 of us had Fajitas and 2 had garlic shrimp, no complaints... More

Excellent, fresh food and amazing service! The entire staff was friendly, attentive, and very accomodating to our special requests. Our shrimp, scallops, mahi mahi, and chicken dinners were amazing. We especially enjoyed the guacamole, chips, and salsa. Thanks to Jorge for being the best waiter! We we be back before our vacation ends!

We went here on a recommendation of friends. Good location and good food...a bit pricy tho. Shrimp platter was $620 pesos, more than we expected to pay for the four of us as we just went in for some appys and a beer. The shrimp were good, no doubt about it. Go, and leave your name on the pole. Its... More

Everything was poor, the food was bad, but the worst of the experience is the attitude and poor manners of the Fat Boy. Greedy, dirty, sarcastic, expecting large tips for hardly any service. On the beach fat boy gets clientelle only because they are passers by with no knowledge of this less than bottom of the bottom places to eat.... More

We fell for the "free round of drinks" scam, our waiter jorge, was quite entertaining and seemed like a straight up guy.

After being told to go to Fatboy's by a local ("ask for Jorge") we had a good time, buckets of beer, double Mojitors (we were told one each would be "on the house") and were somewhat amused by the persistent vendors who offered item after item at our table, we thought it was interesting when our waiter asked if we...

We stopped here our first day in in Bucerias for lunch under a palapa with our toes in the sand. Cold beer, great shrimp tacos, excellent guacamole and quick service made it. A happy choice. We will return.
