A long time ago, I saw a friend post about going here. The food looked epic--huge portions of greasy goodness.

We were in the area so we plugged it into our GPS and headed there for lunch. We walked in and it was gross. Sticky floors, dirty walls, non-functioning bathrooms. Reluctantly, we placed our order with the one guy who was working. For 2 adults and 2 kids it came to over $30.

Our food took 15 minutes to come up--most items made one at a time. My burger was something that was frozen precooked and then thawed to be added to my sandwich. The fries were lifeless and over cooked. Everything was just bad.

I won't be coming back.

Fat Sandwich is good in the same way that mixing every soda option from a soda fountain is good to little kids. They put things on sandwiches that don't belong on sandwiches and make it work. You probably shouldn't eat at this place after you leave college unless you want to weigh over 300 pounds though.

We stumbled upon this place by accident, but it looked interesting so we tried it. The very polite, overworked, stressed out college boy who was working warned us upon entering that he was alone and backed up with orders. It could take a little while, he said. Well, we had 40 minutes so we took a chance. Bad idea. More than 40 minutes later, we received our sandwich and a wrap, both fairly tasty, but not worth the wait. Some poor people who arrived before us still had not received their complete order. Others who arrived to order were told to come back later because he was too backed up.

Bottom line: it's summer and there's little college help available, but the manager of this establishment clearly doesn't care about keeping up the place... (no straws, soda machine out of order, dirty, ridiculous wait times for food, and lack of employees who can multi-task).
I felt sorry for the guy.
Fat Sandwich Company, please clean up your act!

It's summertime and most of the students are away. The the campus is quiet. Restaurants keep minimal staff and some sort of let their guards down. Fat Sandwich company falls into this category. The self-serve ice machine was down, they were out of napkins, and had a roll of paper towels for people to use. It was not very clean inside. I should have carried out. That said, the fat sandwiches are big and tasty. We also had them make a customized cheeseburger with peanut butter and jalapeño. It was delicious! Pay attention to the menu specials. Example: 3 sandwiches for $20. Danno says "Go ahead and 'book it' to the Fat Sandwich Company, but either carry out or use a delivery service." You're welcome.

WOW at a sandwich. The Fat Luigi! A meatball sandwich with fries and mozzarella cheese sticks on it as well.
