We made a return visit here because our first experience was so good. This visit found a much busier time, but we were seated quickly and were well taken care of. The choice of beers here is great and the food is over the top. Ir's a "don't miss" when in the Burgh.

Business is good because they are expanding. It is a popular place as it is always crowded. The salad's are good with French Fries on the salad, like Primanti's. Hamburger's and sandwiches are good and reasonable. What a better way than to wash down their sandwiches than with their craft beers.

I am always searching for that BEST IPA ever and I think I might have found it at Fat Head's South Side saloon. The Head Hunter IPA has just the most amazing aroma and the taste is equally outstanding. The produce several award winning craft beers that are worth checking out if you are on a craft beer tour, like... More

My wife and I split an order of onion rings, wings and the Heart Attack burger which came with home made fries. Entirely too much food but we did our best. All the items were delicious and the service was first rate. If ever in Pittsburgh we will be back.

Had a craving for wings when staying at a nearby hotel. Walked along Carson Street till I found this place, recommended by hotel. Lots of choices for wings. A bit of a dump and the service was sloppy, but it was late at night. Wings were okay, but nothing special.

Did I say beer? Definitely worth a stop. So many beers on tap. Burgers are the size of your head, hence the name. Place was packed but we only waited 15 minutes for a long table. Had a few beers, giant burger and now I'm ready for a nap!

Relaxed and easygoing atmosphere. Fantastic place to enjoy hefty amounts of great beer and spicy charcoal grilled chicken wings. It's surprisingly difficult to find decent wings. They're almost always fried in oil and then dipped in that disgusting orange urine like vinegar sauce. Fat Head's fortunately gives us the option to go for the charcoal grilled ones.

My son and I decided to try Fatheads this past weekend and it was a great experience. The place was packed but the way was short and well worth it! We had the burgers and they were delicious! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for some good food and drinks.

The food was very good. Big portions. Beer was great. Crowded and a little small. It was extremely loud so it was hard to have a good conversation . Would definitely go back. Food was much much better than normal bar food.
