Sit at the picnic tables, drink a cold Pepsi from the can and chow down on an incredible burger and a bag of fries. When a place knows what they do GREAT, they don’t need a hundred options on the menu. And Fat Andy’s knows...how to do a burger and fries!More

We heard a lot about Fat Andy's and finally had a chance to eat there with my son, who said he was in the mood for a great burger. OH my gosh. Great little place, nothing fancy, just incredible food and all personality. We got...a double, loaded (chili, onions, cheese, other stuff). It was absolutely the best burger we've ever had, and great prices too. We also got a pork sandwich and fries - the fries, oh my. It was absolutely fantastic!More

The building looks a little sketchy -- but the burgers are unbelievably wonderful. Hand cut fried hot out of the fryer -- amazing. The service is friendly and your order comes out fast. Enjoy the Double D with fries and you don't have to eat...for the rest of the day! Excellent 'road food'!More

The burgers here were good and the service was fast and pleasant. Fresh food and I was pleasantly surprised by the food for such a simple little building.

My kind of place - great burgers - fantastic fries. Don't let the little shack fool you - great food waits for you inside and great people. Don't plan on eating in - outside picnic tables only.

Great guilty pleasure meal. They make them fresh to order, so they’re not your typical fast food burger and fries. I enjoyed every last bite!!

Looking for a great burger in the Southport/ Oak Island area? Look no further. Fat Andy’s is the best place for a burger and fries lunch. Outside seating on picnic benches keeps it casual. A must!

Great little place to visit for lunch. Their fries are great. Place is small, but lots of places outside to sit.

My Son-in-Law and daughter brought food from Fat Andy's for our lunch.Really good hamburger and home made fries. Absolutely yummy. Will definitely try this place again. I'm not really sure about the expense or the actual restaurant, just had the food.
