I can remember enjoying Fat Boy since the 1950's. The favorite items were the BLT (made with Canadian bacon) and the chocolate frappe. Also, Fat Boy is closed in the winter season, so when the time comes, the locals are more than ready for them to open up again. They put up on their sign that they will be opening... More

This little place is a must stop if you are traveling through or live nearby.The food is very good and the "car hop" service is friendly.You can eat inside ,there are just a few booths available.The fried shrimp and crabmeat roll are great and the onion rings are home made.

Excellent basic menu with pleasant and quick service. Prices very good. Five booths inside if one doesn't want curb service.

Every summer, while growing up, my parents would pull the car in and turn on the headlights and someone would come and take our order. That was more than 40 years ago and you can still do that today. And now, whenever I can, my family and I will do our best to carry on this tradition. We will pull... More

This was recommended by a friend. We drove through Brunswick and stopped at the Fat Boy Drive In for lunch. We left our headlights on to request service and the waitress promptly came over to take our order. It was the last day of their season and they were out of the hot dog that we wanted so we ordered... More

I love finding these types of places, but there is always a risk the food does not hold-up. Seems popular, but the signature hamburger was just okay, and crinkle fries were not good at all. Frappe was nothing special. My rental car kept on turning off my lights, so getting attention from the staff was tiresome. Visit to help keep... More

Decided to stop in for a quick bite on the way home before they close for the season. Initial visit from wait staff a little long but not ridiculous. Ordered a mere crabmeat roll and small rings. Wait was really long. Good thing I was in no hurry or I'd have been steamed. Food was great, generous helping of shell... More
