5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

been here a bunch - always a good time. thick burgers. bigg sammiches. american standards done properly. check FB for their events-- they have lots of awesome live music too. good atmosphere and the owners are super cool although they are super busy if you come during music events. i always try to arrive early so i can get my grub on before the crowd comes.

“Food at Fatty's a WINNER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

The food at Fatty's Bar and Diner is a USA style food is a winner.

Fatty's can be difficult to find but worth the effort. The place is a hole in a wall joint and don't by pass not going in when you arrive!

Matthew, the owner/chef knows how to operate an eating establishment---he serves excellent food and at prices I wonder how he does it!

The presentation of the food equals or above most all Bangkok restaurants in Bangkok and most 5 star places I've eaten in.

Give the place a visit!

“The Best Burger in Bangkok.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

I've eaten at many of Bangkok's fine establishments and I've had the so called "Best Burger" in town many times and I can truly say that Fatty's Bar and Diner serve the Best Burger in Bangkok.
For a modest 150- 160 baht you get one of the best Genuine American experiences, while being right in the middle of Bangkok.

Not only are the burgers out of this world, the cold and hot sandwhichs will knock your socks off. There is great variety of things on the menu to choose from, every so often there are also special off menu items inspired and created by head Chef Matthew Fischer
If you think all they did right was the food, you'd be mistaken because this neat little bar is also the home to open mic night, comedy nights, movie nights, concert series and a plethora of other types of events like beer pong tournaments, beer tastings and story tellings. They have recently installed two new air con units to make the experience even more cool and comfortable.

This is a must visit place that delivers a hellavu bang for your buck.

“Fat food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

My compliments to the chef.

The bar is basic but at these prices and the best US cuisine in Thailand who cares? I even tried the jalapeno poppers from a TA recommendation and was still delighted :) A reprieve from all the sub-par farang joints and theme pubs and a great 'small business' to boot. The sumptuous burgers and other specialities here, served with fries in a basket put places like Mos Burger and Bangkok Burger Company (which is terrible anyway) to shame.

Would love to see them upgrade to better seating and all-round leather upholstery in the future but I can understand their profit margins are doing just fine for now. Nice to hear some genuine indy music in the background, reminded me of being a student in the 90's. Well done Fatty's, Beer Lao and Beer Lao Dark also available? Please.

“Great value, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Really good American-style grub at bargain-basement prices. It hasn't been open for too long but it definitely has a growing following - especially among the musically inclined. It's the kind of hole-in-wall live music place that Bangkok desperately needs more of. A good vibe all around and I've never been disappointed with anything on the menu.
