I went to lunch about a year ago with a friend who told me about the Buffalo Chicken salad that she was obsessed with. I was going to go for that one too but after seeing the menu, I had to try the Pittsburgh salad. Honestly, BEST SALAD I EVER HAD!!!! The homemade ranch is sooooo good you'll want to... More

We went to meet up with friends for a late night burger and some beer. It was a busy Friday night with many diners. Food came fast and was delicious. We ordered an extra meal for friends arriving later, it came quick and was fantastic! Fun place to visit.

Stopped by there during lunch and it was packed with locals. I asked the waitress for a recommendation on sandwiches and she gave me a few of her favorites. The sandwich was awesome and the chips were great...very large portions enough to share or to take home for a late snack

Stop in here for Burgers and fries that will change your life. The beer selection is top notch as well. At night can get a little too crowded.

We visited Fat Head's on a recent trip to Pittsburgh, and really enjoyed it. The atmosphere is really laid back, and the food was great! We would definitely go back!

This place has such delicious food! The atmosphere was fantastic and, even though it's a saloon, the restaurant is very kid-friendly. The nachos are a must-have. We ate so much, but couldn't finish even half of our food! I cannot recommend Fat Head's highly enough! Go on a Sunday and park on the street for free.

We ate here prior to attending a college football game on a Saturday afternoon. The food was great and the service was excellent!! They told us our wait would be about 45 minutes, but we were seated within 30 minutes. Highly recommend!

This place has every sandwich that would qualify for an epic cheat day. They do it right in every aspect, from the craft beer to the unique flavor combinations. The service was just ok but this isn't a place you come to have the breadcrumbs wiped from your tablecloth. WIN!
