We were on a family road trip from Omaha visiting the Hall of Fame in Canton and had a half a day so we took the boys to see Heinz Field and PNC Park. I found Fat Head's to be highly rated on Trip Advisor so we went.
The service was great, the atmoshere was pretty cool and the food was really good. If we ever make it back to Pittsburg we will probably end up there again (even though we usually like to try a variety of places). We really enjoyed the pictures outside the rest rooms of patrons wearing their Fat Head's shirts and hats around the world. Pretty cool.

Cheers

The menu is quite extensive with a plethora of choices; almost too many to choose from. It is actually difficult to pick an item, as so many sound good. After deciding on an item and then having it arrive, well, you won't be disappointed with portion sizes. The food is very appetizing and prepared nicely. Service was quick and friendly. The best part perhaps is that the prices are beyond fair and affordable. Definitely worth a repeat visit.

Loved the creative and varied sandwich choices, big beer selection. Giant sized platters of food that were very tasty. Had the Chicken little sand. and the chicken fingers tasted fresh and were moist and juicy and didn't taste like fried processed chicken meat. Great service, waitress even brought a sample of beer because companion couldn't decide what she wanted. Loud and friendly atmosphere and quick service.

We visited Fat Head's as out-of-town tourists. It was just as we expected. Burgers and beer and lots of testosterone. A quintesential neighborhood sports bar -- although I expect that most guests were not actually from the neighborhood. We had burgers -- very, very good and reasonably priced. It was crowded on a Monday night at 7:30 - we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. I would definitely recommend for visitors. I'm sure locals already have their opinions.

My boyfriend and I strolled in for dinner late last week. Our third time there, the place was packed as usual but we found space at the bar. They have a great beer selection, beers are listed on the wall. We both ordered the wings, there were incredible!

Despite our stress finding a parking spot on Carson Street. The staff was very friendly, which isn't always the case at other restaurants in Pittsburgh. Highly recommend you eat at Fat Heads if you're in Pittsburgh.
