Fat Mo's is a locally-owned fast food chain, but definitely not your standard fast food burger. These delicious and juicy burgers range in size from your typical quarter pounder to an impressive 27 ounces of freshly cooked ground beef. If you're looking for a burger that tastes like homemade, this is definitely the place to go. For all of the tasty toppings–grilled onions, mushrooms, bacon, BBQ sauce, and jalapeños–be sure to order your burger “Like Deluxe.” It costs a dollar more, but adds a whole lot of flavor. Don't forget the spicy fries for a side dish. If you're not in the mood for a burger, try the catfish sandwich, it's another Fat Mo's favorite.
Fast, friendly service with great Italian food. All grinders, pizzas, salads and appetizers are made to order and breads are baked fresh every day.

The signature entree, a huge 22-ounce porterhouse steak, is beloved by serious beef lovers. Non-beef eaters can enjoy chicken and seafood dishes.
