My husband and I were seeking out fish we ended up here because it looked fun and many other restaurants were closed. I had ribs and steak combo which I've got to say was cooked to perfection, this is something I have regularly at other establishments and can honestly say it was one of the nicest I've ever had.

All I can say is that the only reason anyone would give the food here a good review is because unfortunately people have become very used to eating crappy fast food and don't actually know what good quality well-cooked food tastes like anymore. Its always busy with queues out the door. My husband had a burger which was a grey,... More

Visited here as family of 4. Food and service were good but to be honest prefer other eateries in the area which offer more for less. Nothing negative about Fat Sams but personally preferred other restaurants for value and atmosphere

This restaurant was almost always full around dinner time so we were very happy to find a table on one evening. The burgers we ate were very tasty (I had the basic one, I don't remember the name anymore) and so was the chips. They are reasonably priced (mine was around 10,00 EUR), especially because the portions are big.

We ordered hamburgers and weren't disappointed. There was so much food that I could only manage 1/2 the burger. The décor is very fun. French fries are of good homemade quality. Coleslaw was not the best I have had.

Visited here twice whilst on holiday what can I say fantastic food very polite staff gets very busy they have a bar just up road so you can have a drink whilst waiting for table they phone when tables ready. It's an American style so large portions will definitely visit again next year

We ate here 3 times during our stay at Santa Ponsa for several reasons- great food, i'm always looking out for vegetarian meals and the fajitas with stir fried vegetables were amazing! My husband loves meat and had 3 different choices, steak, huge plate of ribs and a chicken meal, all of which were excellent. The staff are so pleasant,... More

Although from the outside it looks like a cheap American burger joint, it is infact gorgeous food. Always busy so difficult to get a seat. If you get a chance it will not disappoint.
