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!

We stopped at Fatty's in the middle of the afternoon. It was the owner behind the counter serving us. It was good conversation and wonderful ice cream. Thanks Fatty's!

“"Fat dogs"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for dinner while on the island. We had a "fat dog" which was a hot dog with macaroni & cheese on it as well as bbq sauce. It was a good combo. We also had some of their Hershey's ice cream, I had the banana pudding which is a flavor you dont see everywhere. It was quite good. My complaint for this place is that they offer a small seating area inside but it was entirely unclean. There was trash leftover & sticky tables. I understand this a quick bite kind of place but if you're going to offer seating it should at least be attended to by the staff. Otherwise it was an ok fast meal after a day in Buxton on hatteras island.

“Great Ice Cream Stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Our daughter has a severe nut allergy, so stopping anywhere for ice cream is always nerve wracking - but how can you not go for ice cream at the beach! The guy behind the counter heard us talking about what she could get and opened a new container of the flavor she wanted and used a new scooper out of the bag. Exceptionally accommodating, friendly and awesome ice cream to boot! Great stop for some post-beach treats.
