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

Great scallops at a great price. Sadly Fat Boys only open seasonal. Good menu and fantastic onion rings. Eat in the restaurant or in your car. The employee's come to your car and take your order. If you decide to eat in your car they have a gadget that attaches to your car and holds your food. Just remember, to... More

On our way to 7 Tree Blueberry Farm in Warren, Maine, we made our way to Brunswick (just off route 1) to check out the Fat Boy Drive In that I had been reading about on TripAdvisor. Glad we made the effort, because we really enjoyed our meals. The Royal Burger was a classically dressed burger on a very fresh... More

Turn on 50s radio on XM or Pandora and enjoy inexpensive and tasty food from a simple but great menu! Busy but quick and friendly service great fun with a car full or side by side cars of family and friends.

I go here every time I visit Maine. The sandwiches are great and at a reasonable price. We usually get one lobster and one crab sandwich. Definitely worth stopping at if you are in the area.

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
