If you’re looking for juicy beef burgers and tasty bird using only the freshest ingredients available, you’ll want to get into Destin’s newest hangout on the Harbor — Fatboys.
Now open, Fatboys starts with 100% premium beef, the freshest-sourced ingredients, and custom built it just the way you like it! “We’re really good at burgers and wings,” said Harshil Patel, Fatboys owner. All burgers are custom made of 100 percent premium beef, each patty a quarter-pound! And you can order up to 12 patties on a burger! And, by the way, if you finish off all 12, you receive a free hat or T-shirt!
The menu is focused on the offerings Fatboys does best. “Nothing is frozen; all ingredients are completely fresh—no frozen wings or frozen meat patties. We make your burgers and wings to order,” says Bernadette Gray, Fatboys Destin manager. “We even wait until fries are ordered to drop and serve! So, you know you’re getting the absolute, up-to-the-minute, hot burger, fries or wings!”
Popular menu items include the “Original Fatboy,” with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, Fatboys sauce and a brioche bun; the “Roadhouse,” topped with pulled pork, BBQ sauce, onion straws, Fatboys sauce, cheddar and a brioche bun; The Fatboy Club Sandwich with grilled or crispy chicken, lettuce, bacon, honey Dijon, Fatboys sauce, Swiss cheese and Texas toast; and the “I Love Bacon,” served up with six pieces of bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo, two slices of American cheese, Fatboys sauce and a brioche bun.
Fatboys, which is named after the motorcycle, also has other sandwiches such as a Fatboy Philly as well as a meatless beast for the vegetarian with a black bean veggie patty, or gluten-free buns and fun kids’ offering combos with hamburgers, chicken bites or grilled cheese sandwiches.
And, wow, the wings are served with a variety of sauces from garlic parmesan, barbecue, sweet orange teriyaki, buffalo to Fatboys Fire!
Side items include local favorites such as Cheese or Chili Cheese Nachos, Jalapeno Bites, Onions Straws, Fresh Fried Pickles, Plain or Salted Pretzel Bites or a Side Salad.
This is the second location for Fatboys says Harshil. “Our first location is in Enterprise, Ala., (opened in 2018). We wanted to open one in this area, so began looking and found this great spot!”
“Daily specials, lunch specials and Happy Hour specials include 10% off for all military, veterans, EMS, firefighters, police and local residents,” says Bernadette. Monday is ½ price wings all day; Tuesday is “buy one get one ½ off” burgers and sandwiches; and on Wednesdays kids eat FREE with adult purchase.
The Monday through Friday specials include a Fatboy cheeseburger, fries and salad for $9.99 or a 6-piece wing meal with carrots and celery or salad and drink for $9.99 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday through Friday Happy Hour is 3-6 p.m. where all draft beer is 50% off!
“We’re continually thinking of ways to cater to locals,” says Bernadette, “because they’re the ones that will keep us in business. So, we’re looking to help sponsor sports teams or work with local charities. We want to be involved in the community as much as possible.” She says Fatboys is even considering a “bike night” on Thursdays for the local biker community. Stay tuned!
Fatboys is open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and has an outside patio on the backside of the restaurant that is pet friendly.
