Stopped in on a Wed. night and had to wait about 30 min. for a table for 2... we figured that was a good sign. Once seated the waitress was friendly and the food was good. Typical pub fare on a large menu and beer list. We would eat here again.

Decent bar food menu with huge portions. Feel your arteries clogging but it tastes pretty good. Always seems understaffed; service could be quicker.

My wife and I went to Fat Head's for lunch recently. I ordered a couple of beers from their micro breweries...good stuff. We should have split one sandwich between the two of us. They were huge! Overall, a tasty meal, good service...(it was crowded), and prices were fairly resonable. Great local bar and restaurant.

First time in Pittsburgh to watch the reds play the pirates we happened to walk past this place on our way to try out primantis. The burgers we saw on our way by looked huge but we had to try out the local primantis sandwiches we had seen on tv. I wish we had just come to fatheads twice. Primantis seemed horribly overrated, especially in contrast to the flavorful food and generous portion sizes here. I ordered the quadruple bypass burger and it comes with bacon, sharp cheddar, beef brisket, spicy barbecue sauce( it had an awesome kick to it) , and a fried egg. This burger did not disappoint. It was messy and impossible to finish in one sitting. Looking at the great variety on the menu I wish we had one near us to try out some more items on it. Would highly recommend to adults. Carson street at night on the weekends was crazy and entertaining, but definitely not kid friendly.
