“Usually good. Not last Saturday”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Went for lunch and beers last Saturday. Only 1 server working. Crazy!! She was really hustling but could not do it all. As we had limited time - we walked out. We will be back but they lost a big tab as our party of 4 was hungry and thirsty. No one ever stopped by to offer us a drink or menus. Other patrons passed us their menus. Weird experience.

This is one of those weird reviews, they say they have been here before must of had a good experiences but didn't write a review for that, saw we were busy, came in, but they had limited time so they walked out. Gave me a bad review and didn't even eat ? Hope you'll come back when you have time.

“Great food near the slopes!!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

The beef brisket was good!!! Great stop at the bottom of the slopes. They have the full NFL package,but not the best viewing space.

Thanks for stopping by and the review. Wish I had more room for viewing the games were maxed out for space. I'm happy you liked the brisket.

“Yes it is fast!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

The waitress literally ran from table to table...the ribs were ok nothing special. The cole slaw was quite good..haven't tried the hot dogs but one in our party loved them. Nice friendly staff willing to accommodate substitutions ...nice touch!

“Famous Fast Eddies has expanded - still the best dogs + more great choices”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Back on Beech the week of 8/12/13 and of course had to hit up Famous Fast Eddies while there. Plus, my local friends said there had been changes to an already great hot dog place. The food was so good, we ended up eating there twice in 5 days.

The service is very friendly. Eddie, his wife and daughters seem happy to be working at this family-owned labor of love that is Fast Eddies. They have added a bar (big drinks) with TV's for sports and tripled their space since last year, along with adding some excellent new menu items.

For lunch, we ordered sandwiches: BBQ brisket, tuna, a slaw dog and smoked pork - all on Eddies home made bread. Every one is a must-try. Add the fresh home-made potato chips and slaw to your meal. The brisket and pork are slow barbeque'd with Eddie's signature sauce and could win contests.

For dinner, we tried the chili (an easy 9); Chili Rules dog; a big Cobb salad, a Classic dog and a smoked sausage sandwich. All home-cooked, each one excellent - we were happy to try them all.

When you are on Beech Mountain, Famous Fast Eddies is always worth the drive. And with the bar, TV's, expanded menu and friendly/fun service, there are even more reasons to visit.

“Felt right at home”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Went to Fast Eddie's on a Wednesday afternoon before the crowds. This was our first visit, but the people we met go there often. We were welcomed by Fast Eddie and the server. Had a great nutty-dark draft and the food arrived quickly. I had the pork, my wife had ribs. Both came with our choice homemade potato chips and slaw. Our friends had the chicken. All of us were satisfied with our meals. It's a welcoming, friendly place with a bar and fairly large eating area. The homemade potato chips were great. It seemed strange to have warm, freshly cooked, chips....delicious. My pork was so tender that no knife was needed. My wife's ribs were smoky and flavorful. Our friend's chicken was great according to them, and they have never had a disappointing meal or situation at Fast Eddie's. We look forward to trying different meals and beers in the future. I recommend this place whole-heartedly. I've a feeling this is going to be THE place to be on Beech Mountain soon, if it isn't already. Definitely worth a try!
