Try to avoid this bar! Waiters are rude, service is slow and prices are very expensive! There is much better to find...

Original was your classic sports bar old school, meaning old dive bar converted to showing sports and having a second life. Lots of wood and lots of area. Closed in mid-2016, the second Fat Boys is still open though not run or owned by the original creator. The second one was always smaller and more compact, located inside a steel,... More

The burgers are quite good in Fat Boys! It is a sports Tex-Mex restaurant. Usually the service is good and professional and staff nice. Going back to the menu, all is good when applied to the tex-mex menu. Some itens are too expensive in my opinion. Love the chili and cheddar-jalapeños burger. I recommend Fat Boys.

I came here excited because of the reviews and because I love sport. I arrived and the place was empty at like 8.30 at night. They'd just reopened after going on holiday. The place itself is great.

Nice staff and good burger at fat boys near schuman! The prices were ok, for two burgers and two beers( one big and one small) we payed 37, 70 euros. The place was clean and they had many TVs where you can watch different sports :)

Nothing wrong with this place really - but then there's also nothing to recommend it either. A norrnal sports bar, serving normal sports bar type food, served by nice enough staff.

After many years of quenching meeting induced thirst and comprehensive tv football coverage the fat boys has closed.

I was staying nearby and this bar was ideal to both start and end the night. Lots of screens, mainly showing US sports. Staff were friendly. Good range of beers, as you would expect for a popular bar in Brussels.

Guys, you fancy a pint with some mates, watching a game? Don't miss their burgers. The meat is just simply "wow", and they have a nice selection of it :)
