The spot has the usual ice cream treats and also provides unusual chocolate covered items. The milk shak are super thick! They use teal ice cream, not the soft serve stuff. Visit here any time I go to the Outer Banks of NC

This was a quick stop for us on our way to our rental home. They serve really good hot dogs and burgers, but the fries are fantastic. Didn't have any ice cream there but would like to try it.

We ate here because the restaurant we had walked to was closed and this was on the way back! It appears to be mostly an ice cream place, but we had hamburgers and fries and they were absolutely delicious. They were obviously fresh and piping hot. The sauce on the burger was really good and I only wish we had... More

This is a great place to get ice cream and sit outside and eat. We wanted to try the food, but they close down the grill at least an hour before closing and only serve ice cream. Not sure if this is normal or just the time of year, but a lot of angry people left. We just decided to... More

I came here today to find a geocache in the area and stayed for lunch. The young lady - daughter of the wife half of the owners it turns out - asked if I'd found the geocache and I said yes. I ordered their chili,cheese & mustard dog and a small diet cola. I have to admit it took a... More

We've been going to Fat Boyz for several years and always have enjoyed delicious hot food. We usually come thru in June & September, and although the eat-on-the-deck atmosphere is not fantastic...it is very suitable. Stacy is always very pleasant and accommodating. You will have to wait for your food, as it is, made fresh...and always "hot". If the deck... More

We made a point to stop at Fat Boyz after reading reviews, but we disappointed. Would have been better off going to Dairy Queen. Our party had a hot dog that was average, a crab sandwich that was good, but nothing special followed by ice cream. They were out of several selections that we asked for, so we finally ordered...

Having A Walk Up Ice Cream Stop Was Spot On. Love The Choc. Covered Bacon Option. The Other Items On Menu Gives You A Nice Selection Of Quick Eats & Covered Porch Seating For A Shared Banana Split With Your Sweetie

This place is a bit pricey but the ice cream is good and the service is excellent. I ordered onion rings at 4 different places on our trip and liked Fat Boyz onion rings the best.
