Description: Fatty's is a fun beachy shop that has Ice Cream, Hotdogs, and Kayak Tours; yep, Ice cream and Kayaks. We know its a crazy combo but being that we are located where we are, we couldn't not give Kayak Tours! The Hotdogs are crazy on purpose. We do all beef dogs with Martins Potato bread buns and load everything from hot Cheetos and Sriracha sauce, to hash browns and fried eggs on them for maximum delicious madness. We are locally owned and operated and we appreciate everyone for supporting locals! A big thank you to everyone who comes out!

My daughter and I fell upon this restaurant and enjoyed our all beef hot dog, ice cream and brand new invention....homemade potatoe chips!!! We were the first customer to try them and they rocked as did the service. What a great group of employees they have...friendly, kind and excited about making our experience an awesome one!! we'll be back.

My family and I stopped by for some ice cream after a great dinner. We pulled up to Fatty's and realized it's just Hershey's ice cream. I like Hershey's ice cream, but we're from Pennsylvania and were expecting something other than what we can get at home. Overall the choices were good 20+ different flavors. Service was good (only had one employee working). The gift area selection was a bit out dated, seemed like leftover items from other gift shops. If you're looking for "Hershey's ice cream" then I would suggest this place... They do give large portions!

Have gone here both nights we've been in Hatteras. Ice cream is great and guys behind the counter are very nice. Definite place to visit.

My wife and I have always been interested in taking a kayak excursion and we stumbled across Fatty's in Buxton, NC. This was a first time experience for us and we were not disappointed! Jeff, the owner/tour guide/instructor was extremely friendly and personable from the time we walked through the door. As you learn on the kayak excursion, Jeff's family heritage is based right there on Hatteras Island and dates back to it's colonial discovery. Jeff is not only experienced with a kayak but has a outstanding knowledge of the entire history of the island (which he shares with you on the trip) and is very passionate about the local environment and preserving the pristine and serene natural surroundings. Most importantly he makes an effort to make sure everyone (including children) are engaged throughout the 2+ hour trip into the sound. Basically, he is real and treats people like...well...people. The kayak tour is worth every dime you pay and more; in reality it is quite the bargain. My wife and I enjoyed Jeff and the tour so much we made a point of driving back with our kids (from Frisco) to get more ice cream (we had gotten some milkshakes after the tour concluded). The ice cream an the milkshakes were, as our other experience was with Fatty's, nothing short of outstanding! Fatty's is a great family vacation spot and experience and would highly recommend to anyone who loves great food, great milkshakes and ice cream, kayaking or all of the above! We cant wait to return next year!!
