Family pizza night. I had the vegetarian secret and the rest had the oinker. Very good pizzas with huge toppings and value for money.

Finished meetings early and decided to pop in to Phat Boys for a late lunch. Such a vibey bunch of waiters and managers. Always great to stop by when looking for a casual hangout. Situated on the main road, it’s easy to find and park....More

Love it. Love the vibe. Love the look. Best buffalo wings EVER!!! Food takes a little long on a busy night, but everything is so nice that you wouldn't notice the waiting. Service good and staff friendly.
