Description: As a family-owned restaurant, Fatso's Pizza is all about fresh ingredients, homemade sausage, and real imported Wisconsin cheese. We offer a thin and crispy crust (not cracker thin though) in white or whole wheat or a deep dish pan crust. Our sauce is made with a special blend of spices. Lots of great combinations or build your own pizza. Our wings are big and meaty with a spicy buffalo sauce or honey hot sauce to choose from. Our homemade ranch dressing is the best there is. Our oven baked sandwiches are delicious, too. We also offer huge calzones, fresh salads and munchies. We have 19 beers on tap, bomber bottles, house wine and a limited selection of liquor. We offer carry-out as well as delivery in a limited area. Live music Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 6:30-9:30pm. We carry the NFL package and have 17 TV's. Fatso's Pizza is your neighborhood bar and pizza joint.

“Great Food. Great Atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My husband and I have been frequenting Fatso's for 14 years now, and it's become my daughter's favorite place! This is a local, family owned and operated establishment with great pizza, wings and an AMAZING beer selection. The wings here are by far the best that I've eaten anywhere...they're baked so they stay crispy without getting soggy like many those at other restaurants. They have great lunch specials and music on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays. It's the type of place where everyone knows your name.

“Been Going There for Years for the People”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This is a local, family, pub. Think of "Cheers" but in a pizza joint. Not fancy but everyone knows everybody. Especially the Thursday night open mic crowd. They are always busy accept for lunch time. The food is ...well let's just say it's tasty. Not gourmet, not done by a chef, but just slinging sandwiches and pizzas from the back. Usually the bar is packed while the kids run around playing pool, video games, and the internet store next door. Nice choice of beers on tap. There is one thing I love on this menu and always order it and that's the chef salad. It's full of ham, turkey, and pepperoni and 2-3 people could eat it and still get full. My husband loves the tuna melt sub. Come in your shorts and t-shirts, watch some sports on the TV and enjoy some crazy and actually really great local talent! The foods a 3 the folks a 5 so we'll split the difference!

“Great food great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

We like thin crust pizza and this place has great crust and great sauce. The Italian sausage was excellent as well. The draft beer is cold. Excellent choice for lunch or dinner. Atmosphere is the only weak spot. All in all great place.

“Our favorite neighborhood hang - out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Fatso's is a great little family owned pizza and sub restaurant in a small shopping center. At first glance, one wouldn't see anything stand out. Come on in, and it's a neighborhood "Cheers." Joe and Bob along with wives Katie and Betsy knock out some seriously good food and are always so welcoming and friendly. Besides great pizza (Big Johnson and BBQ Fat chick among our favorites) and a super baked cookie with ice cream dessert, they have lots of local beers available along with wine and a full service bar. Music on the weekends packs the house as does any big game on the tube (there are multiple TV's for patrons viewing pleasure.)

If you find yourself in the neighborhood of 32nd street & Thunderbird, stop on in ... you'll be glad you did. (Btw, they also deliver in the area.)

“Good pizza, good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Followed tripadvisor recommendation to Fatso's. I love pizza and Fatso's pizza was excellent- whole wheat thin crust was a nice option. Large Ceasar salad was perfect for four. Located in a strip mall, Fatso's had a warm, neighborhood atmosphere. Service was friendly. Will be back the next time I'm in Phoenix, Just wish there was Fatso's in my home town!
