A friend and I checked out the new Fatburger for supper on a weeknight and it was pretty busy. The line moves quickly as it seems a lot of people are ordering for take-out. The restaurant itself is pretty small inside so if you go during a really busy time you may not get a seat.
I had a burger, fries, and milkshake. The burger patty itself was juicy and flavourful. One interesting thing was their cheese melted on, but did not slide off (like so many other places), which was great. The toppings on the burger were OK, nothing that you wouldn't get anywhere else it seems. The regular fries are quite a large serving for one person, however the fries are very bland with no seasoning or anything. My friend had the onion rings and he said they rank amongst the worst he has had.
The milkshake consistency was very thin, so if you like a thick milkshake this might not be the place for you.
Overall I think the burger was good, the fries were horrible and the milkshake was just OK. With the proliferation of burger-only joints popping up all over the city (and Rodeo Burger a block away) it would seem that a place like Fatburger might have to make some changes to keep customers coming back after the initial "new restaurant fad" wears off. Fatburger doesn't compare to many local pubs (Druid, etc.) or even Delux Burger Bar, yet the prices are somewhat close.
