The food is okay, I don’t recommend the hamburger steak 🤢 The nachos are very good and be sure to have the frys NOT seasoned for kids. Who does that!!!

Have always enjoyed eating here but never again. After having to listen to someone sitting at the bar 35' away use every curse word in the English I politely asked the waitress to mention his language was loud and very inappropriate. Only when she said...something to the gentleman at the bar, I heard his reply to tell me to 'F' off. Seriously, there were other couples and families having a late lunch as well. Sad, they have great food and a terrific menu - but I'll never subject my spouse to this type of atmosphere again.More

This is the original location, much better than the other locations! Although they are known for burgers and hots, Fats Pats has quite a few good menu items. This of the best burgers around. The patty itself is seasoned well but the slightly sweet bun...is what makes the burger. Our order Appetizer - chips and queso (add chili) 7.5/10 Entrees Little boy burger - 8/10 Pounded pork tenderloin sandwich 7.5/10 Fries 6/10 Other menu items I would recommend Ultimate nachos Pork and bean sandwichMore

I have tried many burgers from many different parts of the country and this is one burger that I would highly recommend for taste and cost. The servers were very nice and the atmosphere was a little "Grown" so I probably wouldn't bring small kids...but would definitely get them a to go burger.More

arrived and there was only one other couple in the place, definitely a bad sign for 6:30 pm. Only one waitress was working. Placed our orders and waited, a few more people came in, and we continued to wait. While waiting I saw the cook...step out from the back to look around. He reminded me of a homeless guy, dirty and unkempt. When our food finally arrived it was COLD ! Mine was supposed to be pork loin, but it tasted like cardboard and was probably freezer burnt before it was heated. Definitely not fresh. First bite I thought it cant be that bad, second bite I spit out. Only one good thing about Fat Pats... I NEVER have to return!More

Very friendly and courteous staff, prompt service and beyond delicious burgers! Atmosphere is dive like, TV in each booth and all along the walls, table and booth seating. Definitely recommend if you are looking for an excellent burger!

I took my 2 year old son and we had a great time. Barely ate half of the "Little" Pat. Best waitress ever...so friendly. She even sat down and colored with him. We'll be back!

Started going through drive thru when I absolutely had to because a few times when I went in to eat, I sat at the table 15-20 minutes before being acknowledged. Today, I ordered soup and salad and picked up at drive through. A lot of...the lettuce is brown and wilted. They also gave me ketchup. I have no idea why. No one I know puts ketchup on salad or soup. On a better note, the soup was really goodMore
