“Awesome burgers”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

We met our son and his wife here for Mother's day. My husband and I split a Fat Smitthy burger since they were so big. Great burger. My husband had a blackberry milkshake and said it was great.

“Wonderfully memorable experience”
Reviewed June 13, 2012 via mobile

For what it is, it is AWESOME! The waitress is a complete character who makes sure that you don't waste time with the menu because the ginormous hamburger is the only way to go at Fat Smitty's. I wonder if they even prepare any of the other items on the menu. Service was entertaining and the burger was a monster that we thoroughly enjoyed.

One warning: Fat Smitty's only accepts cash (although they do have an ATM in the restaurant).

I would not want to eat here on a regular basis (not sure my heart could take it) but I sure am glad that we stopped in and tackled the wonderful Fat Smitty's burger. An experience we will remember!

Thank Williams R

“Great Spot for a Massive, Tasty Burger”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

The burgers are huge, rarely finish one, especially with the fries. Way better than any fast food joint. They are stacked high, but with a good squish or two to the top, you can plow right through the thing. Love the decorated dollar bills and that they go to charity. Quite a value-$10 for a monster burger and fries. They don't take cards, so don't forget your cash! Although there is an ATM inside if you do. The staff has always been friendly with us and service was fast.

“Why bother?”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

We were in this place once, but never again! Interior admittedly unique (walls papered with dollar bills!), but the rest is junk. Food barely passable.

“Its simple folks….It are a great burger joint in the middle of no where”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

As another reviewer noted Fat Smitty’s is really not in Port Townsend, it’s at the junction of US-101 and US-20, half way between Olympia and Port Angeles on the east side of the Olympic peninsula.
Over the last 25 years, on my recreational travels I’ve eaten here at least 10 times, if not more.

The portions are generous and tasty, the folks who work here are always top notch as far as service goes.
Yes there are at least 100,000 dollar bills tacked everywhere but it’s still clean.

As far as the price point, it’s average for the area; if you want Mac Food hang in for an hour in either direction.

The bottom line is, it’s a unique local burger joint that will give you way more tasty food then you’ll be able to eat.
