    Best hamburgers I’ve ever ate.

  • *****

    Best place in town to get a burger. They have a simple menu with a very large selection of toppings and make the burgers how you want them. The fries are good and greasy.

  • *****

    Great burgers and fries! Classic and ENORMOUS!! A lot of toppings to choose from. Not a lot of seating but they do have seating outside for when the weather is nice.

  • *****

    The burgers here are good, but not best I've had. The store does the same ordering style as "Five Guys Burgers and Fries" with burgers coming with a couple patties and as many toppings as you want to order. The sides include regular and cajun seasoned fries and chili pie. The atmosphere is cool in the old gas station building. I really liked the vibe of this place and even though the beef wasn't the tastiest, I will return

  • *****

    Food is good but the menu is short. Mostly burgers, but there are tons of toppings to pick from. The serving size matches the fat part of the name. You can order one basket of fries to feed the entire table. Every basket of fries is made from a 10 lb. Sack of potatoes. Not much parking but if you're in the mood for a good greasy burger this is your place. Can eat in or outside or get it to go.

    I ate hear for the first time and it was very good. I will say that the Cajun fries are very salty though. Definitely better than a fast food joint.

  • *****

    Simple menu - burgers, fries, soda, milk shakes. Food is good. Nice atmosphere, retro vibe. Parking is crowded.

    Looking for a great burger, this is your place. Went there yesterday and met Skinny on his 50th birthday, nice folks and friendly customers. BLTs are awesome too. Love the place, if you are from out of town or nearby it compares favorably to a CA favorite In-n-Out but with a certain Diners & Dives charm! I'm going back tomorrow to try the chicken sandwich and see if we can run into Fat Boy, bon apetite

    Where to go on a rainy day for lunch? Tired of the regular burger, we went for a fat boy at fat boy and skinnys. This place never disappoints! Good service and great food makes it a great lunch. Bopper even went back for a second burger!

  • *****

    Just finished my first fatboy and it was awesome. The frys were great too. A cheeseburger like momma used to make. It will not be our last, go eat this burger NOW!

  • *****

    Simple menu, great prices, and good food. Burgers are fresh and made when ordered. Cajun fries are out of this world.

  • *****

    Fresh ingredients, not too greasy, quick & friendly service. What's not to like? It's the best burger place in town. The milkshakes are made with real ice cream and are delicious. The fries are thick cut and pretty tasty. I can't think of anything not to like about the place other than it's so popular that sometimes there's no place to sit.

  • *****

    One of the best burgers I've ever eaten. That guy Skinny ain't too bad either....

    A great burger place for Leesville, conveniently located and favored by the soldiers who, upon return from overseas bravely attempted their Man vs Food style challenge....

    Great burger, great bun, incredible toppings. Done right.

    Best burger in tiwn! At first I got the impression that they were trying to rip off of 5 guys but when I got the burger it definitely taste better the fries were amazing and the service was good as well. The outside of the building is deceiving it looks like an old 50 or 60 is Eric gas station which is cool in itself but I thought it was going to be tiny inside. Don't let that scare you away there's plenty of places to go inside and have a seat and enjoy your fat~tastic burger.

  • *****

    Simple, local and fast. The burgers were great as well as the in house cut fries. The servers were friendly, and very quick for a Friday night. We took all three kids and they liked it as well. There is just something about a local joint, with only six things on the menu, that will get my money every time. Highly recommend.

  • *****

    Big burgers and ton of fries in the order. This place is awsome and they are super fast. Burgers her are great and I love the look of the place. Would definitely be coming back here.

  • *****

    I love their burgers, fries and shakes! I love how you can built your own burger and it's very inexpensive and if you feel like you can eat a lot - go for their food challenge! :)

  • *****

    Amazing food! This is a lot like 5 Guys, but better. It has a cafeteria style layout that fits the place perfectly. It's all about the food. Plenty of toppings and burgers cooked just right.

    If you want a burger, this is the place.

  • *****

    Great hamburger and fantastic fries Similar to five guys style. But ten times better We now have a place to eat on our way back to Houston instead of those boring chains

  • *****

    I really liked this place. It's got an authentic dive feel. I walked in and made my order at the counter. I paid, got a number, and then chose my seat.

    The burger was made to order and there was an impressive selection of toppings. The burger came out quickly and was hot and juicy.

    The fries were also tasty. I think they were fresh both from the taste and the boxes full of raw uncut potatoes next to my table. The portion was generous. I'm a large man with an appetite to match but I was fully satisfied by the small order. I can't imagine ordering the large for just myself. They come in regular and Cajun varieties. I opted for the Cajun and was not disappointed. They may have been a little salty for some but I loved it and they definitely were not too spicy.

    They also have shakes and a food challenge but I didn't partake in either of those. The shakes looked good but I was to full after the Fatboy burger and small fries. Some soldiers did come in a large group while I was there and four of them attempted the challenge. I didn't stay to see if they finished but it looked like a lot of food.

    Overall I really loved this place and will definitely come back of i'm every in Leesville again.

    Was looking for a good burger joint in Leesville. I have seen this place a couple times when driving through. It was really good food. The burger tasted fresh and I got to choose from a lot of different topping options. I also tried their Cajun fries. They were hand cut and very tasty. It is a great place to stop at if you are in the area.

  • *****

    If your looking for a real ground meat burger in leesville this is your place. Great burger

  • *****

    If you're looking for a real beef burger then This is the place! Super good and friendly staff.

  • *****

    Reminds me of In & Out Burgers in California. Basic menu. Put what you want on the burger. Toppings from your basic veggies to jalapeos, bacon, etc.

    They cook really fast here, so I like to getting mine to go if I'm in a hurry.

    So dinner tonight was burgers and fries from FB&S.:) Well let me just say I am one happy woman tonight! My honey is a fan of this joint and introduced me to one juicy concoction. I guess it's only fair to meet that high standard since I did bring him to 5 guys back home in NY;) I ordered the skinny with cheddar, bacon, pickles, onions, A1sauce, and jalapeos. He decided to get a Swiss burger with, lettuce, mustard, jalapeos, onions and mushrooms. I did hear about the cajun fries so we got two orders. They were a bit soggy and quite salty. It didn't matter since the burger I consumed was moist, juicy with just the right amount of fatty goodness. My sweetie enjoyed his burger as well since he devoured it in a matter of seconds lol. We both are content and full tonight with smiles on our faces watching sons of anarchy.:)

  • *****

    For what it is it is amazing food! Burgers are extremely good and the Cajun fries are awesome! The only reason I wouldn't give it the full 5 stars is because of the cleanliness. But even then it isn't bad at all!

  • *****

    I think this is the best burger joint in town! I got the chicken sandwich and it was perfectly made and tasty. It's not "fast food" and there's no drive thru, but the food is worth the wait. My only gripe was with the shake. It was just way too watery for my preference. I'm used to having nice, rich ice-cream blended into mine, but this stuff was like flavored milk and not a shake.

    Anyway, I'd come here again if ever I'm in town for JRTC.

  • *****

    Excellent old school diner feel to this place. I travel for work and always try and eat at a local place.. I went here on a recommendation from a girl at the hotel I stayed and also the Yelp! reviews, and was not let down. The burgers are HUGE and you can get literally anything you want on it, peppers, mayo, sour kraut, hot sauce.. The list goes on, so I piled it on! This is the kind I place that is small town USA.. Highly recommended!!

    Perfect example of a great tasting small town burger dive. The restaurant is built out of an old 40's/50's era corner gas station. When you walk inside the first thing you notice is the huge menu board behind the counter. There are no paper menus and the setup is quite simple. What you see is what you get and each burger is made to order with any combination of toppings that you want. Once ordered you are given a number and your food is delivered to you wrapped inside an old school brown paper bag whether you are dining in or taking it to go. I ordered a skinny burger (w/toppings) and Cajun fries. The food was very tasty and is perfect for what you expect in any small town no frills burger dive that cooks each burger individually and not on the fast food chain assembly line. I would recommend this place to anyone passing through.

    Really enjoyed the burger and home cut fries. Even though I got my food to go, I really like the off the beaten path appeal. I will definitely be back there again.

  • *****

    Got into Leesville and needed a quick bite. Remember Fat Boy and Skinny's and went there. A converted old fashioned gas station, it has lent itself well to its current incarnation as a retro burger joint. Their ordering system is similar to Five Guys- type of burger, free and premium options, sides. Ordered a Skinny burger (1/3 lb), fries with Cajun seasoning, and a drink. My order soon came. A fresh not pre-formed burger patty that looked, smelled, and tasted delicious! The Cajun seasoning over fresh cut was an interesting variation. Price came out under $10. Although eating here wasn't a religious experience, in this area of corporate mass-market homogenized Mcfood it's a treat to see a local establishment executing the basics well. Will repeat when work brings me back to Ft Polk/Leesville and highly recommend!

    Amazing hamburgers just the way you like them, made to order always fresh and hot. Fries are fresh and delicious!!

  • *****

    1.Service- Service was good. Nothing to complain nothing to over glorify. Fast, friendly, and courteous. Also bar staff is very attentive.

    2. Facility- Clean, well kept bathrooms. The overall establishment is well kept. I didn't watch any tables get cleaned after customers left so I cannot comment to it.

    3. Food/Drinks- First off, for appetizers the fried pickles, fried green tomatoes are amazing. I will most definitely order from them again. I received the ribs, and although they were good they were very dry. Kind of like chewing on jerky. Flavor though was good. I brought this up to management and they replaced my order with a free full rack of ribs and they were AMAZING. The sides I received were potato salad and green beans. Both were ok, not bad not amazing. I don't fancy liquor only beer. They do have a few beers on tap, basics obviously and it seemed they also had some local brews.

    4 stars for good food good service. Nothing amazing but definitely better than 3 star quality.

  • *****

    This place is the bomb! Excellent service, fast and very reliable. They want you happy in this place. I never had any problem with parking, never had problem with the service, clean place. Unique!

    The food is great and service is one of the best in leesville. I really recommend this place.

  • *****

    The best place for a good burger in the area. Was at fort Polk for a short period of time and were there at least 5 times in one month. The place could use a good cleaning though. I took my food to go every time for that reason I couldn't deal with the filth but great burgers lol

  • *****

    If I am ever allowed to choose the method of my own execution, I will come here and eat myself to death.

    I had the best burger I have ever eaten in my life today. I'm still trying to make sense of it. For those of you thinking, "Well, I like Five Guys," know that Fatboy Skinny's makes Five Guys look like McDonald's.

    This location is great. Been here twice this summer. The staff has been super nice and friendly. I've had the skinny and you pick your toppings. The fries are sooo good. Just a heads up this is a little greasy. But if it's your cheat meal do worth it!!
    The salads and blt are good as well. So worth the stop.

  • *****

    Great service and very friendly staff. We got the skinny burger and had to force it down. Huge burgers and fries. Will definitely return.

  • *****

    Highly recommend: I've eaten at Fat Boy & Skinny's about a dozen times over the past three years and I've never been disappointed. Their menu is simple and small, but every item is delicious. The food is always fresh and delicious! When family or friends come into town, Fat Boy & Skinny's is almost always on the agenda.

    5 stars for what it is; a great little (no frills) burger joint. Quick service, pleasant staff and great burger. I almost drove by but decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did! Plenty of topping options available. Cajun fries are delicious. I got enough in the order to take some for the road! Enjoy!

  • *****

    Excellent atmosphere and plenty of menu options. Love! Love! Loved my burger!

  • *****

    This place is just TOO CUTE! I love the 20's/50's vibe about the place! And the food was great too! Could really use a milkshake though to add to the charm...

  • *****
