“Total Enjoyment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

A one of a kind place. I took my mother and aunt recently to Munchies. I was a bit apprehensive due to some reviews I had read. However, our experience was one of pure happiness. The food was absolutely delicious in addition to enormous proportions. I ordered the Fat Daddy sandwich, could only eat half. Mom got the chicken tacos and aunt ordered the philly cheese steak. All was delicious. Staff was very nice. Seating is limited, only one big table (seats 6) and four small bar type tables (seats three each).

“Good for what it is”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

The food and atmosphere at Munchies are geared towards those who might have had a few too many. They offer a variety of fried foods like wings, and chicken fingers. Along with all manner of items all jammed into a roll known as a "fat sandwich". We went after seeing the place on M v F, and there was a bit of a wait to order, and quite a wait for our food. The fat sandwiches are big enough to be shared by two people, and are interesting to say the least. We had one with chicken, onion rings, mozzarella sticks and cheese sauce. The other was 2 hamburgers, chicken fingers, onion rings and covered in mac n cheese. Def not a place to go if you don't like fried foods, are on a diet, or have a heart related health condition.

Overall I would go here again, especially with the guys, after a night at the bar.

“Awesome food!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

Went to Munchies twice in the three days we were in Sarasota. They have so many great options it was hard to decide what to get. I couldn't finish the sandwich either day, because they are so big. The girl working the counter was really nice. She recognized us the second time and chatted us up about our trip. The wait time for food was acceptable, wouldn't call it quick. There isn't a lot of dinning space inside, but I assume with the great weather most people take it with them. We will definitely go back anytime we're even close to Sarasota. I love Munchies.

“Awesome hours, delicious bad-for-you-food. The wait staff can be rude :(”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Went there 3 times in the past 4 months (I work nights). Thank you for catering to people that don't work 9-5 jobs. The food satisfies all bad-for-you-cravings.

The ONLY bad thing is that 2 out of the 3 times, the wait staff was very very rude. They ignored the phone ringing, then rolled their eyes, then answered the phone, then put it on hold, then continued with me for my order, then laughed that the other poor unfortunate customer was still on hold, then when they were done with my order, instead of going back to the caller on hold, they sat down and watched the TV that is strategically placed up in the air. Then the caller actually CALLED back, then the person answered the phone and immediately placed them on hold AGAIN, then continued to watch TV and never returned to the caller.

So NEVER call in your order. If you do, they are probably going to answer the phone, then immediately place you on hold, then LAUGH at you while you are holding, then NEVER return to the call.

But as long as you physically go in to obtain your food, you will be fine. And we have to put up with poor service like that, because few restaurants cater to late working people, and they know it--so they can get away with it.

But again, delicious food.

PS. Do NOT ever try to alter or modify any ingredients to your order. They WILL give you attitude. So be sure to select something that absolutely is everything that you want it to be AS IS. They will tell you that they CANNOT modify any recipes. Again, they know that we will tolerate this poor service because they can get away with it. But as long as you go in knowing that ahead of time, you are that much more ahead of the curve!

“Best late night food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

Great food after a long night of drinking. Absolutely outrageous food. Very nice courteous staff. Pleasantly shocked by how nice and clean everything was. Totally recommend for an off the beat and different sarasota experience.
