Great Pittsburgh institution. Have an appetite and a half to eat their. Everything is beyond large. Beer selection is fantastic. Wait is long but worth it. Just know you'll be taking home leftovers.

If you are looking for a good burger or great wings, this is the place to come in the Southside. Their beer list is huge too. Every time someone I know visits, Fat Heads is always a top 3 choice.
