Approaching the bright, black and white 'Fat Pizza sign, I found myself smiling as hilarious memories of the comedic television series came flooding back. Although I was never a massive fan of the show, I had always wondered if the restaurant was as good as the ratings. So, on a rainy Friday night I decided it was time to check out the newly re-opened Fat Pizza Restaurant.
While entering the doorway, the Fat Pizza menu is at a a large behind the counter, ensuring that you don't miss a delicious thing. My suggestion is to come hungry as these pizza portions are anything but small.The pricing for the pizzas is quite average considering the portions. Pizzas start small from about nine dollars through to fifteen dollars for the larger, heavily topped ones.
There is a variety of pizzas to choose from, whether you prefer to stick to the regulars (as I do) or perhaps you prefer to try something a little more devilish such as the seafood pizza.
My personal choice was the margarita, which I did not regret. Each slice was cut neatly into equal portions and the base wasn't too thin nor too dry. Being a margarita I did have my fears that the pizza would be too cheesy, I was proven wrong. Oil and grease weren't an issue either. I have to admit, it was one of the best margaritas that I have had in a while.
Choosing to eat in was also a delight as my cutlery was brought over to the table in small packages and not just wrapped in a serviette as in other restaurants. Fat pizza is all about an help-yourself atmosphere, although I must add the staff were friendly and helpful when needed.
If you ever find yourself super hungry on a Friday night, I strongly suggest heading over to Fat Pizza to enjoy pizzas in the relaxed and totally casual atmosphere.
