A long time ago, I saw a friend post about going here. The food looked epic--huge portions of greasy goodness. We were in the area so we plugged it into our GPS and headed there for lunch. We walked in and it was gross. Sticky...More

Fat Sandwich is good in the same way that mixing every soda option from a soda fountain is good to little kids. They put things on sandwiches that don't belong on sandwiches and make it work. You probably shouldn't eat at this place after you...More

Food was fresh and made to order. We ordered 13 sandwiches in all and every one was made fresh and as ordered. Staff very nice and helpful. Dining in or outdoors. Small but good atmosphere.

Very bummed because we checked this place out online, wanted the great Fat sandwich experience, were traveling through Illinois, and when we got there they weren't open. I looked up their hours online and nowhere did I see "summer hours" posted. So, I recommend calling...More

If you're a health freak, I'd advise you to stay away from Fat Sandwich Company. Otherwise, if you're down to coat the linings of your stomach with fatty oils, do a little damage to your cholesterol, and have the capacity to fit clogged arteries once...More
