Fat Boy is always a go-to place in the summer. The food is delicious, service is great, and the prices are just right! A must-have while you're there: a frappe! The best Frappes around without a doubt! Just the right thickness, and always consistent- have never had a bad one there!

Old fashioned car hop with outstanding food. From burgers to fried chicken to fried clams, eat in your car, eat in, or take it home, absolutely a must do.

This is the place for a really special BLT. We've been eating them there since the 1960's. A true old fashioned drive-in with car service. Can't leave without their outstanding onion rings and chocolate milk shake. YUM!

To paraphrase Lawrence and Lee in Inherit the Wind, here's the 50's, minus the roller skates. What a hoot. Once you go to Fat Boy you know why people love it. Pull up, turn on your lights, and here comes a bouncy waitress with the menu. We went for the famous BLT, clams, onion rings, frappes, and a lboster roll.... More

Old school drive in very cool to eat at and food is decent, better than fast food but not quite restaurant quality.

And I speak from experience, as I started going to Fat Boy Drive-In back when I was 15, some 60 odd years ago. It's the first place I drove to the day after I got my driver's license. Their BLT with Canadian bacon is to die for! So is their steak and cheese sandwich. It's the only steak sandwich I've... More

It's just not possible. The atmosphere, the friendly servers, and the ridiculously priced - as in inexpensive - food (always delicious, including my favorite; Fried Clam Basket with added and fantastic Onion Rings) make Fat Boy as necessary as breathing air (OK, almost). And while I won't go so far as to say Fat Bot is life saving, it most... More

I am a local and I dine at Fat Boy's several times a season. Even during the summer when the tourists are in the area! The food is good, the waitstaff are excellent (please do not forget to tip them - just because you eat in your car, they still are waiting on you!). Some of my favorite items on... More

Car hop! Fantastic quarter pound hot dogs, delicious frappes, great service! Just turn on your headlights! Food comes out on the old fashioned car window trays!

This place has a lot of nostalgia. The food wasn't bad, it just wasn't for me. Also their "Bacon" is ham. We were not told this when we ordered our "bacon" burgers. Cute place. nice to try. Not sure I would go back. Just ok.

Thank Diane P
