Fathead's original wing sauce is by far the best wing sauce on any Buffalo wing I have ever had, anywhere. I am a big, tubby, well-travelled guy, and I can speak with authority on this matter. The original sauce is extremely complex and satisfying, hot, but not too hot, a hint of sweetness, a hint of vinegar, truly world-class where sauce is concerned. You can have the sauce served on the side with chicken fingers if you prefer to dip it. You can also purchase a jar of it to go to make the best crock pot chicken ever. I usually have to resist the urge to put my whole face down in the empty basket to slurp up the residue. And by the way, everything else is really good, too. But the original wing sauce is THE thing to try, no [--].

Definitely worth checking out if you're going anywhere in the South Side. Huge burgers, salads, and entrees. Good beer selection. Love the potatoes. Wish wings came in 30-35 count though!

Fatheads is the ultimate in bar/barfood experiences in the Pittsburgh area. The food/menu was created by a 'chef' and it is carried out the way it is supposed to be....good food in a large quantity, cooked and served by a fun group and accompanied by some of the best craft beer you can find. And, Fatheads makes a good portion of the beer they sell. Casual, fun, and pretty much always in demand. When you go to the 'burgh, go to the rest then come back to the best-Fatheads. We live here and this is our 'go to' bar...with all the choices we always come back.

First time at Fat heads and would go again! Fun, casual atmosphere. The selection of beer was as large as their portions. Highly recommend their chargrilled wings and Cuban sandwich.

Food choices excellent and not your ordinary offerings. My son ordered sandwich with sausage and pierogi eps in the bun. Pulled pork was fantastic. Homemade chips tasty. Atmosphere was lively and energetic with good mix of college students, couples, and families. Great beer selection too!
