“Quaint little diner in Pacific City”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

Fat Freddy's offers a modest atmosphere and standard diner fare. We had burgers and a BLT. The quality of the food was average. The prices were fairly inexpensive. The burgers were modestly warm and the fries were cold. The service was friendly but quite slow.

“UGH”
Reviewed 7 February 2013

This place served us the worst meal of our vacation. My "chef's salad" ($8.95) was bagged lettuce with 2 pcs of cut up ham lunch meat and some see-through chicken slices. The dressing was okay. Husband did not say one word about his gross-looking hamburger. Hard to pay $25 for a lunch like this.

“Disappointing burgers but killer fries”
Reviewed 12 October 2012

We were in a hurry on a weekday and needed quick food on our way home heading south. Burgers were the easiest as it's hard to mess one up...wrong! We both had the Bacon Cheeseburger combo. We were the only ones in the place at the time. I can't figure out why so many coastal burger joints just can't seem to keep the grill hot enough to sear the outsides of the patty? The meat was bland, unseasoned, and marginally cooked IMO. The other parts like the bun and fixings were just fine but the hamburger as a whole was pretty weak and tasteless. I have to say though, the fries were absolutely fantastic, much like the twice cooked variety at some places. The owner was friendly but I have a hunch he turns down the grille when business is slow so that might explain the blandness; a good burger needs a hot griddle to cook right plus a bit of seasoning. I'll try it again but will go for something other than a burger.

“Great fish and chips”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

We were sent to this place by a local lady and we were not disappointed. We both had the fish and chips and we sat outside in our car (we didn't want to leave our puppy alone) eating the hot food and even he seemed to love the aromas coming from our boxes. The service was a bit slow because there was only one cook on duty. But it was very busy from a walk up business due to the road crew working near by. The slaw was good and so were the fries and the fish tasted like ti was just off the boat!!!
