My wife and I split an order of onion rings, wings and the Heart Attack burger which came with home made fries. Entirely too much food but we did our best. All the items were delicious and the service was first rate. If ever in Pittsburgh we will be back.

Had a craving for wings when staying at a nearby hotel. Walked along Carson Street till I found this place, recommended by hotel. Lots of choices for wings. A bit of a dump and the service was sloppy, but it was late at night. Wings were okay, but nothing special.

Did I say beer? Definitely worth a stop. So many beers on tap. Burgers are the size of your head, hence the name. Place was packed but we only waited 15 minutes for a long table. Had a few beers, giant burger and now I'm ready for a nap!

Relaxed and easygoing atmosphere. Fantastic place to enjoy hefty amounts of great beer and spicy charcoal grilled chicken wings. It's surprisingly difficult to find decent wings. They're almost always fried in oil and then dipped in that disgusting orange urine like vinegar sauce. Fat Head's fortunately gives us the option to go for the charcoal grilled ones.

My son and I decided to try Fatheads this past weekend and it was a great experience. The place was packed but the way was short and well worth it! We had the burgers and they were delicious! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for some good food and drinks.

The food was very good. Big portions. Beer was great. Crowded and a little small. It was extremely loud so it was hard to have a good conversation . Would definitely go back. Food was much much better than normal bar food.

Great location and good a buzz, the staff was accommodating and friendly, parking seems like it could be tough on the weekend. The starters are huge! Get one for the table if you get mains. The sandwiches were were well flavored. The buns are far too big, could def make it look better and be more balanced if rethought.

The bar here was hopping and the bartenders were very engaged with their patrons. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. We waited 50 minutes for a table on a Saturday night. Table service was fine, but the food was mediocre. Two of our party became ill after eating here.

I am a wine drinker so can't comment personally on the beer, but there was tons of choices, some with very high alcohol count! The food looked amazing but we didn't eat. Really great atmosphere but super busy on Saturday night.
