“Just not as good as real Chicago pizza.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We ordered carry out, an antipasto salad and a large veggie pizza on thin crust, substituting tomato for green pepper on the pizza. The salad was huge, plenty for 2-4 people honestly, and had a great mix of lettuce and ham, black olives, salami and peppercini. Totally would go back for the salad.
The pizza, on the other hand, was really disappointing. A thin, flavorless crust, made damp from the added tomato really failed as a thin crust. It seems the large size was too big to support a crispy thin crust. The sauce was bland, but the toppings were okay. The cheese was tasty, but couldn't save the pie.

“friends!!!!!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

great food... everything on the menu is great. Good friends, and great staff. I read others who have not like this place all I can say about their review is they must be crazy... They must like card board pizza is all I can think. So if you like "card board pizza" than you won't like this place.
Best pizza in Arizona. Thanks Pete! Keep up the good work. Robert Timm

“Not Chicago Style Pizza”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Just got back from fatmans in AJ, Born and raised in Chicago and I can tell you this is not Chicago Style Pizza. We also got a beef sandwhich that was not chicago style at all, If we go back we will not get the pizza or the beef. Salernos in Mesa or Rosatis is the best place to go in the part of Arizona I live in. Disappointed.

“Best in Apache Junction”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Apache Junction is not known for their food so thank goodness for Fatman's. This is a great family owned hole-in-the-wall. I am from New York so I go for thin crust. Although it is definitely not NY style, it is good, fresh pizza. This is a excellent alternative to the delivery chains that are in the area.
