“Good!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

I ate here for the first time between Christmas and New Year's. We had friends visiting from out of town. Not being college age, we specifically picked this time because students would be gone on semester break. The restaurant was not full, but there were plenty of people there. Yes, we had the much talked about Cajun potato salad and it was good! Probably had a thousand calories, but it was definitely worth trying. The four of us had sandwiches and all liked what we ordered. There was an extensive beer list. Service was fine. I recommend this restaurant and certainly plan to go back - when the students are gone (lol).

“Good food and drinks”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

Stopped in here on a Wednesday night, WOW this place was hopping. Wednesday Night is trivia night, starts around 9. Even with it being crowded, we where waited on quickly, and the food came out quickly also. The staff was great, great atmosphere, and the food was good too. Will come back the next time in Dekalb.

“Great food.....”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Try the cajun potato salad....it is the best. It is just a neighborhood bar - lots of college kids at night, but it has great food. Burgers, sandwiches and salads. YUM!

“Fun Bar”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

We found Fatty's doing a google search as we were stopping in DeKalb enroute to Chicago. The bar had a very good atmosphere. Waitress was pleasant and attentive. The menu had lots of choices! The potato salad was delicious. I had naked chicken strips which were very tasty. You could tell this seemed like a favorite place for locals. It was easy on and off I-88.
