“Your best happy hour option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Our favorite place for after skiing drinks & appetizers In Tahoe City. Last time we went we had a crisp Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc. We ordered happy hour Appetizers. Street Tacos & Buffalo Chicken Sliders. The buffalo chicken sliders were spicy, with cayenne flavor. The street tacos were honest, Carne Asada, Onion, Pico de Gallo and Cilantro. The portions are just right, not too big. We haven't been there for Dinner...Yet.

“Best Greasy After Mountain Food in Tahoe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

Here's what to do after riding a hard day in Tahoe:
Call Fat City. Order a Cardiac Arrest (add a Mel's combo if you've got 4+ people). Go to Whiskey Dick's across the parking lot from Fat City. Have a $2 beer, a $2 whiskey and coke, and a $4 martini. Reminisce about the gnarly trees you were shredding all day. Pretend you didn't wipe out in 4' of powder and spend most of the afternoon digging out of a tree well. Suggest to one of your lovely compatriots that you visit the hot tub at the cabin after dinner. Pound down that pizza like you know you should, secure in the fact that you burned 5000 calories boarding (digging in the powder). Get back to the cabin. Pass out while the girl hooks up with your friend.

Best apres in tahoe!

“Yummy Pizza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

All I have to say is WOW! Fat City is by far the best pizza in Tahoe!!! I don't know if it's the crust or sauce....maybe both. The bottom line is that if your tastebuds yearn for something better than chain pizza restaurant fare then this is the place to find it in South Lake Tahoe. Great mac and cheese too!

“Decent Bar Grub, Priced Kinda High for the Clientele”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2011

Was absorbing a few cold ones across the parking lot at Whiskey Disk's and decided we needed some bar food to balance things out. Bartender happily produced menus for the Fat City Food Company and called our order in, a few minutes later somebody came trundling across the parking lot with our food. Wings were tasty if highly oversauced making eating them a mess. Fried Calamari was, well, fried calamari, crispy and well-battered but served with out of the jar sauce. Menu prices were surprisingly high considering they seem to cater towards the Whiskey Dick's clientele; according to the bartender they're also a popular take out and delivery option in the area.

“Good Food kind of Pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2009

This place has good quality food for take out/ delivery, or dining at Whiskey Dicks, my only complaint would be the prices $10 for a burger $20 or more for a pizza a bit steep, but I continue eat it and pay it so..............
