Fat Heads

Fat Head's Saloon on Urbanspoon

I had never been to Fat Heads before. This is really suprising since I live about 3 minutes away on Mt. Washington and I eat out constantly. Every time I've tried it's been jammed with people. Since there are so many places to eat on the South Side, I never wanted to wait. Today, we got there around noon and it was packed again. Luck was on our side and there were just two seats at the bar, which is fine with me.

First of all, the menu if HUGE! Full of standard sandwiches and then larger ones that they call Headwiches, because they are the size of your head. I like this place already! They also have dinner entrees and 40 beers on tap.

I ordered a Cuban Headwich that they call "The Bay of Pigs". Stacy ordered a tuna sandwich.
The Cuban was tremendous!!! Full of pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickles and a spicy mayo dressing. It wasn't served on typical Cuban bread, but instead on a large crusty bun. It had to be about 6 inches around. Not quite as big as my head, but huge anyway. It came with homemade chips that were also very good. Stacy's tuna was not what I expected to see. It was a fillet about 1 inch thick, about the size you would expect to get as an entree. While I didn't try it she said it was very good.

The menu also had a sandwich called the South Side Slopes (pictured above). It has kielbasi, cheese, onions and piergoies! I'm going to go back to Fat Heads!
