tastiest burgers ever! – any toppings you get with their juicy beef patties will satisfy your burger craving. in addition there is a very good beer selection to go with your tasty burger. most of the beers are brewed in-house.

best sandwiches on the planet, and a must-eat wing night – The "Headwiches" are ridonkulous. I had "The Bender": keilbasa, fried egg, provalone, crumbled hot sausage, fried onionstrings, roasted red peppers, wing sauce, and pepper mayo .. ARE YOU KIDDING!! This sandwich changed my life and ruined all other future sandwiches for me ... My eyes rolled in the back of my head, the great potato strings/fries wre a superb compliment, and there are about a billion great ales and brews to choose from. In a town with some great sandwich joints, this is by far the best!

Also, go on Wing Night (Mondays) for 25-cent wings ... they have over a dozen sauces, but the Original and the Carribean Killer are the best.

Fatheads, you are my new religion!!

Best hugh sandwiches – Really great that the place has gone non-smoking. We all can breathe a sigh of relief. Good place to meet and great food. I highly recommend any of the fathead sandwiches, if you have a big appetite. My favoite is the Old Timer, love the anchovies. Very casual but only has one draw back, pretty noisy, but that is my opinion. Once you go there, you will definitely go back

Definitely my favorite sandwich place! – I highly recommend the fish sandwich and the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich. The beer selection is great, and for the most part the service is good, although there were a couple of mediocre servers that made a couple of visits less than enjoyable. The management, however, seems to be very customer oriented, and most of the waitstaff is quite good, especially the lunch servers. This is a great place to go with a group, and is one of my favorite restaurants in town.

Good Food .. Yea .. But the people .. – I eat at Fat Head's two or three times a week .. because of the food .. or is it the people? .. Which people? .. The people on the stools? .. or the people behind the bar? .. or with the aprons? .. Amy .. Sara .. Stephanie .. Gary .. Buffalo Burger .. oops that's food .. anyhow, .. Go there .. but wait 'til I get a seat .. (go after 12:20 for lunch) That way, I'll get a seat .. Try the new sandwiches (and the old ones too ..)

.. Oh yea .. Try a "Chuck Shummer Draft" (known as Arrogant Bastard)

Burg Classic – I just returned to the burg after moving to Colorado 25 years ago. I discovered Fat Head's on vacations back to the burg and found it to be the best place for wings, fries and sandwiches in town, or any town for that matter! I just love it there! I have traveled the world, and there always is that special place in most eveyplace, and Fat Head's is Pittsburgh's special place...

Wings/Beer – If you plan to attend Fat Heads I suggest you get a beer and order some wings. I ordered the "famous" burger but after eating agreed with my girlfriend that it tasted more like average to me. I did however order some of their "volcano wings" and a cider which were very impressive. The Volcano wings were supposed to be the hottest wings around and being a "wing guy" I had to try them. They came in five and I got to three. Nuff Said! Their selection of beers is awesome to say the least. If you going out for wings and beer don't go to Hooters go to Fat Head's but if you taking the wife/Gf to lunch skip this place. Unless she likes wings and beer = )

A classic American bar serious about beer, wings and its infamous sandwich. – The Scene
Fat Head's is not serious like a heart attack; but serious like your neighbor who cuts his lawn at precisely a 27-degree angle from the street. The single-malt Scotch and beer list features a great selection of the best that American micros and European masters have to offer, and the brews from Belgium make for a nearly unforgettable piece de resistance. All of it is needed to wash down some of the best and hottest of the 'Burgh's wings and improbably large sandwiches.

The Food

On the menu, somewhere between the 13 kinds of wings and 35 different sandwiches lies the Headwich. Possibly more infamous than famous, the sandwich that is literally the size of your head is considered a rite of passage by many locals.
