“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

The place to be if you like to watch any kind of sport (over 10 tv and a big screen). they broadcast NFL, NBA, MBL, all european league football and if you ask very kindly even the women handball worldcup. ;-) they have it all. Plus a very international (american mostly) crowd, great staff, great spirit, nice people, very easy to start meeting people. And.... last but not least... the food. The best burgers of Brussels, no Europe. Great chilli sauce, great hotdogs,... Only one way to find out for yourself, go there.

“Good food, but the service...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Sometimes, I like american food (burgers, etc..), so no problem with quality of food. But the problem, which I had there, was about the money. When we wanted to pay with my friends, the bill was not ours, so finaly, they changed, and when they gave us money back... they gave us less... so, again, discussion about the money.... it's a pity!

“Where'd the all beef burgers go??”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

Been going here for years and honestly it was mostly for the burgers. But since december something is definitely wrong. Those burgers are no longer all beef!! I believe Fat Boys prided themselves on that (or used to)...right? Just a shame. If your gonna pull a fast one on clients, at least lower the prices to the standards of the meat you use. Your representing America (sorta), so give a better image and try not to swindle people.
Beer is always cold. Food is 7/10 (except the burgers - used to be a 9, but now no higher than a 2). Staff is generally nice and in good spirits. Owner can be gracious (if he likes you) or sometimes a jag. Never had an issue, but seen clients who did nothing at all and were berated in front of other people. Tip to the owner : They take the time to come to your establishment, spend cash that pays your bills, so maybe they should be treated better. Owners wife very nice and always friendly. Pretty ladies are always working there. But maybe they should pretend better that they enjoy working there. Smile. it dont hurt. Customers remember these little things. I will probably go less now, but I'm sure the owner could care less. There are always other people to fool about their 'famous burgers'

“Sportbar as they normally are”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

It's a very typical sportsbar, lively and crouded when sport is on, like champions league games or so. It's packed with people and you have to wait for a drink, which is served in a plastic cup...
Prices are average and servise too. Don't go here if you look for a quiet night out. Food is average, large portions though. Hard to get a table on sport nights.

“Only sportsbar in the city?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

There aren't many traditional sportsbars in Brussels, at least by American standards. But this is an exception. It has tons of TVs, a typical barfood menu, and a lot of noise. If you want to catch a game not on local TV, you'll almost assuredly find it here. The burger is also one of the better ones you'll find as well. It's not excellent food by any means, but that's not why one visits a sportsbar in the first place. I went to Fat Boys numerous times while I lived in Brussels for a couple of years.
