Fatburger's skilled culinary crew packs its menu with a savory selection of juicy gourmet hamburgers and hand-scooped milk shakes in the atmosphere of a traditional hamburger stand. Fatburger's fresh, never-frozen patties come in varying sizes and geometrical complexities, including the Baby Fat burger ($2.69) and the towering Triple King burger ($9.79), which buttresses three thick 8-ounce patties with a lightly toasted bun. Diners can accessorize burgers or alternative options, such as a chicken sandwich ($4.99), with toppings including an egg or a taste-bud-tickling chili ($0.59–$0.99). Add a side of thick or thin-cut french fries, crisped in cholesterol-free oil ($2.39), or crispy onion rings ($2.99), which provide better companionship for lonely entrees than buying them a Furby.
Cheerful servers whip up 16-ounce milk shakes ($3.79) in flavors that include salted-caramel and maui-banana, which blends real ice cream and liquefied luaus beneath a dulcet cloud of whipped cream. The eatery's laid-back, retro-themed interior swells with tunes from a modernized jukebox as napkin dispensers shimmy romantically across glossy tables.
Not much has changed since Lovie Yancey opened the first Fatburger in 1952. Since then, the chain has expanded, but the food has stayed the same: 100% USDA lean beef burgers grilled to order and hand-scooped ice-cream shakes. Each restaurant stays true to Yancey's vision, even down to retro-influenced digs with jukeboxes blasting old school favorites designed to make listeners flash enthusiastic thumbs-up signs. Inside the kitchen, cooks stack burgers from 2.5-ounce burgers to 24-ounce triple burgers on toasted regular or gluten-free buns as fresh onions crisp inside fryers filled with cholesterol-free oil. Diners can also enjoy Fatburger’s signature chili made with a secret blend of herbs and spices or milkshakes topped with dollops of whipped cream that resemble fluffy, white clouds shaped like marshmallows.
