“Interesting burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Snuggled in a tiny corner of Joo Chiat Road opposite the Katong 112 shopping mall is Fatboys the Burger Bar, which serves up burgers with a twist: its a burger joint, its a bar, its... a burger place where you can customize your own burger from a list of buns, patties, cheeses, add-ons and sauces all in the comfort of a 'happening' environment. Besides burgers, Fatboys the Burger Bar also has other comfort foods such as onion rings, milk shakes etc... All in the comfort of a cosy pub/diner environment.

Service was acceptable, Singapore-style that is. It did take some effort to get them to notice us for an additional order, but other than that orders were taken down promptly. Food was served in a relative fast time and payment was a breeze. Price and taste wise, Fatboys the Burger Bar nicely covers the segment that upmarket artisan burgers and fast food miss. The prices aren't (as) cheap as fast food but definitely more affordable than the arty burgers, and mostly certainly very filling (and tasty too)! We almost could hardly finish the Beer Battered Onions Rings and burgers, along with the milksakes and my root beer float!

“heaven in a burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Had a great meal here while staying with a friend in Singapore.
The Burgers were absolutely delicious and it was hard to choose, when looking at the menu!

Lovely service and a must-eat when you love burgers.
Nothing like the sloppy fastfood franchise burgers.

“Burgers with a twist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

I had a gathering here with my old camp mates. This place is chic and cosy for a start. We were seated on a long table for more than ten. They offer burgers with a twist here and seriously, they are much better than those burgers that come out of conveyor belts. Interesting menu with many different options and not forgetting meat balls and chicken wings too.

This place serves their food just like American restaurants do, BIG... So one burger alone will fill up a grown man'a stomach easily.

Overall, a nice place to hangout and dine the classic American way:)

“Unfortunately average..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

For 2 years now I've lived in Paya Lebar, pretty close to City Plaza and many times I've made the walk down to the 112 Katong Mall via Joo Chiat Road. Tonight me and my girlfriend decided we wanted to go for dinner, nothing too fancy, nothing too big and nothing too far. Craving Americana we (I) decided on Fatboys.

Place was pretty busy around 7pm but not uncomfortable, we got a table straight away. The place is pretty basic and doesn't really have any sort of environment, it has a Chuck Norris poster and a television playing sport. Guess that's pretty optimal for the crowd it wants to attract.

For appetizer we ordered a portion of the beer battered calamari with Wasabi mayo dip. Specifically asking the waitress to serve it at the same time as the burgers It inevitably came out first.

The burger menu is decent; with lamb, beef and chicken being available in multiple fixed combinations and code names with the mandatory make your own burger option also being available. We ordered two 'Wimpy' burgers - beef patties with cheddar cheese, a fried egg and bacon. Served with fries and their special 'burger sauce'. For me, despite the burger being juicy and very tasty the special burger sauce ruined the ensemble. It's a sweet onion like BBQ sauce and it overpowers everything else inside the bun. The portion of fries that comes with the set is small and the salad must be a novelty, consisting of a literally a slice of lettuce and a slice of tomato.

They serve draught Hoegaarden and Stella Artois, reasonably priced for Singapore standards. They also serve a selection of milkshakes, soft drinks, bottled 'beers' and home made ice lemon tea which tasted like liquified cardboard.

Service was generally good and quick and the price was reasonable. They also serve a selection of American themed deserts such as waffles, pancakes and ice cream.

Would I come back? The answer is yes, but I'd specifically ask for my burger without the horrid special sauce.
