Fat Boy’s Local Drive-In
What is a review on a place called Fat Boy’s Local Drive-In doing on Made Healthier?! I know, I couldn’t bring myself to eat at Fat Boy’s for a very long time. But it seemed like everyone around me, especially this year, has been telling me about how much they enjoy eating here. And they all said, don’t let the name put you off. So when Fat Boy’s recently opened a new restaurant in Waipio, I finally and reluctantly gave it a go.
Partial shots of their breakfast and lunch menus.
The image up top is the lunch that we shared. It was a mixed plate of garlic chicken and beef stew. Fat Boy’s is well known for their garlic chicken so I had to try it. It was very good – sweet and garlicky. The beef stew was good too with lots of celery (which I love), and nice chunks of meat, potato, and carrots.
When you order, you get a choice of toss or mac salad which is really good. My only suggestion would be to make it easier to order brown rice. They do have brown rice but it’s currently of the individually prepackaged commercial variety. If there was no additional cost to have brown rice and toss salad as my starch and salad choices, Fat Boy’s Local Drive-In would rank pretty high up there on my list of places to grind.
