Excellent home made soups, creative and delicious sandwiches in this small, quaint sandwich shop. A bit hidden but worth finding.

We get sandwiches from Fatty Lumpkins at work all the time. I work for GE Avation and everyone loves these sandwiches. I like the ones with the slice of apples in them great twist on taste. Love them. Keep up the great work and taste. Bob

We have never been disappointed with Fatty Lumpkin's and find the sandwiches fresh and offering the best deli options in the area. Nice variety and eclectic, hipster vibe interior. Limited seating, yet great to grab a sandwich on the way to the beach, picnic or meeting.

Best sandwiches for takeout in the Muskegon area. Very small seating section. Always busy at lunchtime! Quality ingredients & unusual combinations make their Sammy's extra good! Their salads are incredible as well, love love love their sweet potato salad!

KICKN' CHICKEN. HOW NOW BROWN COW. DIRTY D's RUSSIAN. I promise you are going to be back, again, and again, and again. Absolutely amazing sandwiches, salads, chips and deserts. (The wheat bread is super soft and flavorful!)

If you haven't yet you must get a sandwich for this tiny location. It's, however, a little hard to find, especially for those who lack a sense of direction (like my spouse). The choices a a little different but they are so tasty. The shop is tiny, so I usually get mine to go unless it's summer and the outside... More
