    As they say, "not fancy schmancy" but just great sandwiches, burgers & beer. Try the South Side Slope headwich -whoa! Tons of craft beers on tap too.

    Finish a Beer Tour (75 drafts, max 2 of any specific beer). Joining is free, and you get free stuff as you work to complete it!

    Order a headwich. You might want to fast for a day or two first. The Beer Camp headwich rules!

    Extensive beer list. Come hungry: It's called Fat Head's for reason!

    Visit the Fat Heads 6-pack shop, and build your own mix-and-match 6 packs of great micros and imports!

    Get here early, or get here late — it doesn't matter, it's gonna be way too crowded!

    The Wanzko Chicken Sandwich with chips rocks. Ask for the honey mustard with the chips. All sandwiches as big as your head. Also, best craft draft beer selection in the Burgh. Read more

    Seriously one of the best places in Pittsburgh for a sandwich and a beer. I left half-drunk, with a full stomach, and leftovers for tomorrow's lunch all for under $20.

  • Kurt S.

    Get the fries with the cheddar jalapeno wing sauce. That was an excellent discovery!

    Kurt Swartz · June 14, 2010

    Be prepared for a long wait... but don't worry, it's worth it! Best onion rings EVER!

    Make sure to get a side of honey mustard to go with those fries or chips... Read more

    The upstairs store would be better for additional seating - NOT a store.

    Best place for colossal sandwiches and craft beers (for those of age). Try the South SideSlope, voted one of the Top 5 sandwiches in the country. Good luck finishing- Jessica, Social Media Manager

  • Wes R.

    This place has the best sandwiches and salads in all of Pittsburgh, and at reasonable prices. Did I mention they have over 15 beers on tap?

    Wes Roach · August 12, 2010

    Go to Fat Head's. You must get a "headwich" and match it with an appropriate beer. The italian style potato skins are amazing.

    Jim Barton · November 26, 2009
  • Steve L.

    get the chargrilled wings, very good, original hot sauce has outstanding taste, monday nights .40 cents a wing

    If you order a martini here you should be asked to leave.

    No wi-fi, but can usually pick up a connection to brugger's, next door.

    Don't bother trying to get a beer on their Troegs brewing nugget nectar night. Even when you arrive very early and tell your server you want some they blow you off.

    Tom P · February 22, 2013
  • Monica T.

    Be adventurous. Don't order a Bud Light.

    The Fathead's Head Hunter is the best IPA you'll ever have.

    The onion rings. They will kick your ass and make you think twice about ever murdering another onion. Life changing.

    deluxe roast beef is to die for

    The go-to meal at Fat Heads is called the South Side Slope, which oddly resembles some type of Muppet baby daring you consume the beast of a meal. Read more

    Everything is amazing. Poor? Get a pretzel... cheap and their honey mustard is delicious.

    Ridiculously large sandwiches and beer, what more could you ask for?

    This is easily one of my favorite restaurants ever. The cheddar jalapeño wings and Southside Slopes sandwich are unique and unequaled. This place is always packed.

    Kevin Dudley · August 26, 2014

    It's not on the menu, but order a South Shore Blues Headwich (road beef, bacon, blue cheese). Delicious!
