Right in the heart of Carson St, this place seems to stay pretty busy. Selection is solid, with about 10 Fat Heads beers on tap, and about a dozen from other breweries. The food is awesome! My friend and I ordered a burger and sandwich and they are huge! One of the best sandwiches that I've had in a while. I'd definitely come back next time I'm in town.

Great spot for some tasty brews and good grub. They have at least 10 of their own brews on tap with a mix of year round (Head Hunter) and rotating / seasonals. They actually had a 2013 Vintage aged Christmas ale in addition to the fresh one. They also have a nice selection of guest drafts. Backwoods bastard was on. Happy hour specials are great. half off their beer from 3-6 M-F so $3 pints of Head Hunter! It seems there is always a decent wait for a table here so don't show up too starving. But they take your phone number and text/call u when table is ready. I enjoyed the southside slopes sandwhich (kielbasa and a fried perogi with sautéed onions and cheeee) would definitely recommend. Their food selection is insane. so many options and all sounds so good.

The OG Fat Heads, been there more times than I can count. Good sammies, great selection of FH and other craft breweries, as well as arsenal cider. Service can be slow at times because its always packed.

Huge portion sizes of fantastic food really make Fat Head's stand above the rest! You'll have to wait a bit for a table occasionally, but that wait is worth it once you see their very large selection of beers. Their own beers are great and they carry a slew of other craft brews you can enjoy.
Check it out if you're ever down on the South Side of Pittsburgh.

Had a very nice time here this afternoon with the wife and kids. Not as kid-friendly as the N. Olmstead location, and a bit crowded, but we came in pretty much during the lunch rush. Excellent tap list. Great Fat Head's choices on tap (I had Sorcerer and she had Hippy Sippy), and a bevy of other great brews to choose from as well. Wide variety of styles. I thought the waitresses/bartenders/greeter were really nice, especially as we brought in kids and a 6 month old in a stroller (I guess we contributed to the crowdedness)! The food was good, and there was a ton of it. Overall, just a fun time, and a no-brainer if you are in the area and enjoy great Fat Heads brews!
