“Huge servings”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Have not seen this much food in a long time. The beer selections were good with their own brew. Food good. French fries fed our whole table. Only bad thing was service was slow. There was an hour wait but that was ok because they took our phone number and we bar hopped until they called.

“Had a great meal, a great beer, and great time”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

The Fat Head IPA was great. Any beer that's described as uncivilized and aggressive, has got to be good.

Kids had burgers and we had pastrami, really good. We liked it so much that we got a tee shirt.

Top rating for us.

“Great meal!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Great happening place to have dinner or just a drink. Lots of beer selections. The menu is also really big. Took us a little time trying to decide what to have. Hamburgers and fries are very good and filling. Patio is covered so it's great on a rainy or sunny day.

“Fantastic Wings and Beer”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

My second visit to Fat Head's was as memorable as the first. This is a must visit when in Pittsburgh. The selection of beer and cider is quite overwhelming but there's something for everyone. The Barbecued Chicken Wings were unbelievable!

There's a bit of a wait for a table, but its worth it, the food is fantastic. There's something to be said for a place that takes a chance on a sandwich with perogies and koubassa in it.

“Huge Selection of Beers on Draft and Large Portions”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Went to Fat Heads for lunch and enjoyed some different sandwiches that you don't find anywhere else. We started with the grilled wings and beers (good tasting and priced right beers). The noise is loud and they could really use some sound killing tiles on the ceiling so you can hear your companies conversation.

I had the beauty and the beast (with smokey BBQ) and my wife had a burger with different toppings on it. Fries which come with burgers (chips come with everything else).

I'd go hear again since there are plenty of menu options to pick through but be prepared to leave full!
