This was recommended by a friend. We drove through Brunswick and stopped at the Fat Boy Drive In for lunch. We left our headlights on to request service and the waitress promptly came over to take our order. It was the last day of their season and they were out of the hot dog that we wanted so we ordered... More

Yummy burgers, fries, etc in a casual setting. Prices were reasonable and the staff was friendly. Good stop for a quick lunch.

I love finding these types of places, but there is always a risk the food does not hold-up. Seems popular, but the signature hamburger was just okay, and crinkle fries were not good at all. Frappe was nothing special. My rental car kept on turning off my lights, so getting attention from the staff was tiresome. Visit to help keep... More

Decided to stop in for a quick bite on the way home before they close for the season. Initial visit from wait staff a little long but not ridiculous. Ordered a mere crabmeat roll and small rings. Wait was really long. Good thing I was in no hurry or I'd have been steamed. Food was great, generous helping of shell... More

Great burgers. Chicken nuggets are actually chunks of chicken and not processed meat. Mealtimes are very busy, naturally. It's that good.

The service was incredible the food well not so much. The fish was good the breading not so good. So every year I try it again but this time I think I got the message.

Visited Fat Boy for the first time this week. They serve great fast food (burgers and fries) along with local favourites (lobster rolls, clam strips and crab cakes) for very good prices. This is like a 50's drive in where you get served at your car and eat there as well. Family really enjoyed the food but remember to bring... More

My son loves hamburgers and fries but doesn't like the chain restaurants. We went to Fat Boys and the burgers and fries were yummy and the milk shake was very good too. Its a great place to eat in the car and people watch.

We are new residents to Brunswick.The wife sad "Let us give FB a go". So we did. Reminded me of 50's Pennsylvania Diners inside. Nice menu, we went standard burgers, fries, onion rings, and Cole slaw. The simple burger was well prepared, the fries so so, great onion rings; creamy Cole slaw. Iced tea was quite refreshing. The servers work... More
