If you're a health freak, I'd advise you to stay away from Fat Sandwich Company. Otherwise, if you're down to coat the linings of your stomach with fatty oils, do a little damage to your cholesterol, and have the capacity to fit clogged arteries once in a while, this place will do just that for you.

This menu items here are unconventional. Imagine a big hot dog bun, filled with things such as fries, mozzarella sticks, chicken nuggets, onion rings, beef patties, bacon, ham, egg, mayo, ranch, ketchup, etc. Gross, right? Well, once in a while you just got to put your guilty conscience aside and set the fireworks in your stomach. Fat Sandwich Company can provide the perfect venue for that. Just go for a long run the day after. I wouldn't advise doing it right after your meal as you'll get pretty darn full.

You live life only once. You might as well try their monster challenge... It's as big as a standard NFL football. Finish it by yourself and you get it free.

It was a very interesting food experience eating here. Definitely not your typical sandwich place. The food is very unhealthy but very good if you want to gain some extra weight. They put all things fried and meaty into your sandwich, so it is best to eat with a couple of friends and a drink. This place will guarantee give you a good story to brag about to your family.

If you like "extreme foods" this is a good place. We have been here a couple times in their slower summer season when the U of I is not in session. We go because our son attends camp there in the summers and he gers a kick out of it. It really is a college joint. The staff is really friendly and attentive. The food consists of REALLY BIG subs with unusual combinations. My wife and I split a chick finger/gyro sandwich. It was tasty but a bit dry. It needed more tzatziki sauce, and I have no doubt they would have given us if we had asked. Our son had something with meatballs, mozarella sticks and marinara sauce. He finished half before giving up. All the sandwiches come with fries piled on them. Fun, tasty and not too pricey.

A bunch of fried food with sauce and then topped with a giant pile of french fries- what's not to love??? The eat-in area is tiny, which is a bummer b/c this is food best eaten hot. The Krispy Kreme burger is unique and yummy, but so teeny compared with the other food. The fries are only ok, but the best reason to eat here is to cross "eating junk food, all on a bun" off your bucket list!
