We came to Happy Fatz for dessert and coffee and were blown away by the selection of cheesecakes--and how delicious they were! The coffee was also great! Quaint and intimate atmosphere and friendly staff.

We have been here several times now - never disappointed. This is essentially a gourmet hot dog place with several other great sides/desserts. It will not be a dollar hot dog. Just know that going in. They run like $7-$9 each Before you balk - think about this... Is it just a hot dog if it comes with basically a... More

Quaint and friendly small eatery/bakery in a charming bungalow. They serve breakfast, gourmet hotdogs, fresh salads and beautiful, delicious desserts made with extra love. Everything was fresh and delicious. Susan and her team have taken the humble hotdog to astounding heights with Hebrew National wieners, handmade rolls and a nearly endless selection of topping combinations. Featuring a dessert case filled... More

Happy Fatz is located in a house that has been configured into a restaurant. The decor is quirky and fun which complements the menu. I don't typically eat hot dogs, but HF made me a believer! I would recommend ordering the Texas Chilli Dog because it is filling and deliciously savory. However,I'm sure that the other hot dogs at Happy... More

We went in and ordered the Bayou Boss(recommended by the staff) and the Al Capone with their homemade coleslaw and potato salad. The hot dogs were fantastic! Bayou Boss has brisket on it with some barbecue sauce. This one turned out to be my favorite of the two. But the Al Capone which is a Chicago dog was excellent. Good... More

I enjoyed the Barron Von Ratchit -- hot dog with sauerkraut & spicy mustard on a pretzel bun. I liked ALL of it - kraut, mustard and the bun. My friend had the off-the menu BBQ hot dog which was also good. Portions are large so only one hot dog was needed with the included side (chips were my choice).... More

They have great food and are always willing to make me something vegetarian. Not all places are willing to work with veggies and they are always helpful and willing to cook the item to order. Nice atmosphere on top of good food.
